“Healthy and popular Thai salad. Shredded raw papaya specially imported from Thailand. Pummeled in pestle and mortar with carrots, lime juice, tomatoes, green beans, chillies, garlic and crushed peanuts.” It may look like a light refreshing salad but don’t let it fool you – it was DAMN SPICY. I don’t know what it is that they put in the salad but I will say it again – this was the SPICIEST salad I’ve had in my entire life. Still good, but DAMN SPICY.
