October 30, 2012. Hello again! Our feature recipe is a regional delight from Rayong, on Thailand's eastern seaboard. Namsai means clear soup, and this is unusual because it's tom kha without the coconut milk. The key ingredient is the dipping sauce. Locals in Rayong dip seafood and other meat into this sauce, and the sauce is even poured directly over jasmine rice and eaten. Click on the picture at left.

There are also several new items, back in stock items, and $5 flat rate shipping for two days only.

Thanks for visiting!
