uhhhh? this is som tam in canada :(
Papaya Hut was the name of the restaurant, but i highly recommend ordering anything but the papaya salad because it was pretty nasty.
Instead of using limes or cherry tomatos or even romas, they use the big field tomatoes sliced flat (?) and big and small chunks of lemons….
dont get me started on the giant onions and huge chunky jalapeno peppers.
I guess its just cheaper to order shit mass produced vegetables rather than use birdnest chillies, cherry tomatoes or shallots like it should be done.
And I haven’t even mentioned the headline ingredient of the dish - the papaya. They must have got the most bland, tasteless, rubbery green papayas with the kind that taste vaguely of jicama crossed with condom rubber that assures you that like the rest of the ingredients in this dish, they came from a corporate agriculture plantation somewhere in an eternally sunny environment with cheap labor and old pesticide laws.
I miss Thailand even more than before I ordered from these fuckers Papaya Hut - Vancouver downtown.
