Thai Larb

Thai Larb

Thai Larb is a pork and raw vegetable lettuce wrap with umami depth and toasted ground rice.

Opal Thai

Opal Thai in Haleiwa on the North Shore of Oahu is one of those not-to-be-missed eating experiences. A block or two from the famous Matsumoto’s Shaved Ice, Thai food lovers, including me, rave about the fabulous dishes.

Opal, the proprietor, has an outgoing, engaging interaction with every table of diners. He greets you then takes the menus out of your hands and chucks them on the bench. “I’ll take care of you, no worry,” and then he administers a pop quiz. “Name five Thai dishes you’ve eaten recently”. My daughter and I have both been to Thailand and love Thai food but we were taken off guard. We stammered through Pad Thai, Satay, Curry and Mango Coconut Rice. He announces, “I’ll take care of you guys and you’ll love it” he prescribes. His only question, “How hot do you dare?”

Thai Larb with Lettuce WedgesIn a few minutes several dishes appeared. We started with Thai Pork Larb and then enjoyed Drunken Noodles and Shrimp with Crisp Vegetables. Wow! I loved it all, every bite; but the Larb, so amazing; crisp raw vegetables, pork with fish sauce and lime juice scooped in a lettuce wrap. I decided to recreate it when I returned to Washington, DC. Two days later while still suffering from major jet lag, I made my first version.

Drawing from notes, Opal memory and “Cooking with Poo”, a cookbook my daughter brought home from her cooking class in Thailand, my first attempt was close. Tweaked the recipe into this version. I’m raving over the umami flavors of Thai food and crunchy vegetables eaten fresh, raw. This recipe is for my family members who didn’t make it to Opals.
