Hello everyone.
Do you fancy Thai Food? I really do! I like Thai food because it has a unique taste. Today I would like to recommend one famous  Thai-Isaan dish for you which is น้ำตกหมู /nám-dtòk-mǔu/
น้ำตกหมู /nám-dtòk-mǔu/ is made of grilled pork with Thai herb and ingredients such as chilli, shallots,  roasted rice powder, kaffir lime leaves,  parsley and some seasoning. You can have  น้ำตกหมู /nám-dtòk-mǔu/ with fresh vegetable and sticky rice. Oooh, mouthwatering!
Remember: This dish can be very hot and spicy. If you cannot eat very spicy food, don’t forget to tell the seller that ไม่เผ็ด /mâi pèt/ which means “not spicy” or you need to prepare many bottles of water! 🙂
Enjoy Thai food!
