Happy Earth Day! In honor of today, a posting on the perfect dish- a Burmese salad from Piggy Smalls, sister restaurant of The Pig & the Lady. I love both restaurants. Their cuisine is Vietnamese-fusion. The Pig & the Lady started out at a couple Farmer’s Markets on the island. After taking off, they decided to open a physical restaurant, which my girlfriend and I were so excited for! Finally!! Their phở is unlike no other. It’s different and so tasty. A few years later, Piggy Smalls opened. Yay! Love that there’s so many options now. The Pig & the Lady still appears at Farmer’s Markets and community events.
The “Weekend at Burmese salad” consists of the following ingredients: green papaya, tomatoes, garlic, sesame, various toasted nuts & sprouting seeds, preserved lemons, and Serrano peppers, with fermented lahpet dressing.
