Personal Notes:
This dish is best when get together..more likely like a dish that have to share with other pepple. In Thailand, people get together and set around in circle and eat as family. This dish is good when it super spicy...not hot not good..and best serve with sticky rice and some babaque ribs or fried chicken.
