Som Tam Petmanee 2

Top choice thai

in Surin

Also known as Som Tom Mae Pet, this simple Isan restaurant by Wat Salaloi is Surin's most famous purveyor of sôm·đam (spicy green-papaya salad) and gài yâhng (grilled chicken). The súþ nòr mái (bamboo-shoot dipping sauce) is good, too. There's little English, spoken or written, but the food is so good it's worth stumbling through an order.

It's 850m from the bus station; turn left out of the station, left at the crossroads then take the second right and walk to the end.
