Heard so much about this Thai place, they’re suppose to have the best laab in town. Very very spicy stuff, but so fresh and good.

Larb fortress hill

great papaya salad, but I shouldn’t have agreed to spicy!
green papaya salad

More Chinese horfun than Thai noodles. I would go with the Padthai next time.
kweh teow

Still, great stuff and I am looking forward to come back. Don’t be fooled by the metal gates in the evening, you have to go round the corner and walk up the stairs, they open till 11pm, so definitely find the entrance and head in!
