Braised lamb shank – Saltrock Southwest Kitchen

Braised lamb shank - Saltrock Southwest Kitchen
White grits, baby spinach, cucumber-feta salad, poblano-mint salsa verde. $26
Saltrock Southwest Kitchen, Sedona AZ

This was ok I guess, but the lamb shank was on the tough and chewy side. It would never make up for this horrible dining experience at Saltrock!

Northern larb – Lotus of Siam

Northern larb - Lotus of Siam
Northern style larb (ground pork) cooked with northern Thai spices without the lime juice, garnished with fresh herbs and vegetables. $11.95
Lotus of Siam, Las Vegas NV

The larb was very different from the usual Isan style, citrus-y larb. I liked the difference though. I will say that I probably like Isan style larb better since it’s a bit more refreshing to me, but this was good to try. I liked the vegetables that came with it!
