Nam Prik Ong- another deliciously quirky appetizer!

Nam Prik Ong (Roasted Tomato & Ground Pork Belly Dip) 

A home-style snack dip of Nan Province (North). 
Nam Prik Ong is a roasted paste of ground pork belly, tomato, red chilies, garlic & shallots.  Its taste & texture is reminiscent of a spicy Bolognese sauce.  Served with traditional sides of crisp carrots, cucumbers, romaine leafs & fried pork rinds for dipping.  Don't ask us how the Thai food gods think up such ridiculously quirky, yet delicious food pairings!  Just come in and try some for yourself!
