Bringing back recipes after traveling in Asia for 8 months, Jannell Lo combines her culinary school and industry training with her experiences to bring you this vegetarian friendly take on sort-of-Vietnamese-but-also-a-bit-Thai rice bowls. She draws influence from com tam, a simple and delicious bowl of broken rice popular in the South of Vietnam, as well as Sai Ua, a Northern Thai sausage packed with punches of flavour.
Sai Ua Falafels (*veg/vegan/gf friendly)
Based on the northern thai sausage, these falafels are spiced with lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, galangal and chilies. Served on top of rice with fresh herbs and a variety of fresh and pickled vegetables. Choice of a Thai style coconut milk dressing*, or nuoc cham, a Vietnamese lime and fish sauce combo.
