Crispy, refreshing & satisfying - especially when it is really hot & humid but you'd like some sort of meal! Fish sauce is a really great source of B vitamins - brain food! Has raw egg which some may prefer to substitute or use pasteurized egg. I like to briefly coddle my eggs - but they are still essentially raw. From Taste of Thai.
