Lunch at Larb Ubol in NYC
My mom and I went to Larb Ubol in Hell's Kitchen for a quick, tasty, and inexpensive Thai lunch. I've wanted to go to this place for awhile after seeing a different place out-of-state on DDD that showcased larb - a Thai dish with ground meat, some herbs, and either cabbage or lettuce wrap. The lunch special of an entree plus either papaya salad, chicken larb, or soda gave me a great way to try larb but also got the entree of my choosing. I ordered a dish with chinese broccoli and crispy pork over rice. It was actually pretty spicy, but very tasty and manageable to eat. Lots of flavor in the pork, and crispy like lechon. The chinese broccoli made me feel less bad about eating fried pork for lunch haha. My mom ordered a dish with steamed chicken, ginger, rice, and sweet chili sauce. I think she enjoyed it. It looked healthy but still appetizing, so a winner in my book.
