I've never seen dried beans used in Thailand - but maybe I just overlooked them?  I did see dried beans in the markets in Vietnam, but never saw them in a finished, cooked product - maybe they're only made at home?

there is ( are ? ) no Rx for nam tok beans in DT's Thai Food

 

there is one Rx for Nahm Dtok :   

 

its a grill beef salad

 

" a nshm dtok is another norther salad, and one which shares many characteristics with larp . 

 

However it is made with a single piece of grilled meat.  The name of this salad comes from

 

the beads of meat juice that form on the side farthest from the heat as the meat grills, which

 

Thai cooks refer to as nahm dtok - literally ' water falling.  this is their cue to turn the mat.  "

 

there are three beans mentioned in the index :  Snake , Wing and Yellow

 

Wing bean Rx is a salad , snake bean Rx is stir-fried wild port , and yellow bean Rx's count to 8 entries.

 

if this is the bean dish :

it doesn't look like what the yellow bean Rx's seem to be

No such recipe in that book, nor in Pok pok.  Can’t find one with Nr. Google.  On Eat your boooks nam tok brings up beef salad called nam tok.:(

I wonder if it's a spice style or something. The beans were I suspect almost deep fried after being cooked. The menu mentions Issan style - wonder what that might be?

Issan Thai food is food from northeastern Thailand.

here is a description I found:  “Isaan Thai food is renowned for its pungent sauces, spicy chilies, and unusual proteins. It isn’t often in the spotlight but it certainly has its own die-hard fans who will travel far for Isaan food made right. Here are several crowd-pleasing dishes that we’ve eaten and think even first-time visitors will enjoy.”

I love pickle and peanut butter sandwiches.  Some one that makes candies should do peanut butter and pickle juice.  You will make a zillion dollars.

Forgive me for saying so, but that seems rather "niche."

No snacks last night at the reception so we woke a bit peckish this am. Headed down to the hotel buffet to take our chances.

I was about to say the same. Great stuff for a US hotel.

How many of the mini condiment bottles are stashed in your bag?  I love them; re-pack bulk herbs & spices to keep at hand arther than opening big containers when playing in the kitchen.
