Somtum with salty crab – Sai Jai Thai Restaurant

Somtum with salty crab - Sai Jai Thai Restaurant
Thai papaya salad with mixed with dried shrimp, fresh garlic, chili, lemon and fish sauce. $7.50
Sai Jai Thai Restaurant, San Francisco

Um, I was NOT a fan of this. The papaya salad was good enough, but the salty crab was not my style. It was slimy and super hard. You couldn’t bite through it and I don’t think that there was much meat in there, so I’m not sure that it was even edible. I would have loved to have someone instruct me on how to eat those crab pieces.
