Bok La Hong a.k.a Cambodian Papaya Salad - Nov. 17th

We don't post nearly enough Cambodian dishes, which is weird, because I swear I've taken a lot of pictures of them.

Bok L'Hong

Anyway, this will be a short post about the Cambodian style papaya salad called bok l'hong or bok la hong. The papaya used for this salad isn't soft and sweet, but rather crunchy and sour.

The papaya is first peeled and then shredded. Fish sauce, rehydrated dried shrimp, lime juice, and sugar are added and mixed together with beans and tomatoes.

Braised Pork and Eggs

That night, we had a plate of stir fried baby bok choy with garlic and oyster sauce. There was also a plate of braised pork with eggs, cabbage, and sliced bamboo shoots to go with the steamed rice.
