My sister and I went to Crispy Pork Gang & Grill in Thai Town. It gave me heartburn for the next three days, but it was worth it.

The fried morning glory salad with pork larb was my favorite. I’ve never had morning glory fried like tempura before. It was a revelation.

Crab fried rice is my new Thai food staple.

By coincidence, that same week I was commissioned to write a story on a new Thai restaurant in the up-and-coming neighborhood of Peckham in South London.
