Asian food of any variety tends to hit every taste bud. The dishes that perfectly balance sweet, salty and tart with a mix of textures are hard to put down. Think Thai crispy pork with Chinese broccoli or a bowl of vermicelli with shrimp paste, charbroiled pork, crispy shallots and a fish sauce vinaigrette. During Monday morning's #Weekendeats chat on Twitter, participants shared some Asian dishes they enjoyed over the weekend. Here are the highlights:
Brooks Walker shared a photo of a plate of his delightful pad kee mao spicy noodles with chicken at Thai Paradise in Folsom, Calif. A frosty glass of Singha beer is seen behind the plate, ready if the spice gets a little too hot.
Clarissa Wei, who recently shared highlights from 626 Night Market, shared a photo of homemade zongzi in preparation for the Dragon Boat Festival and a photo of lamb and pao mo (unleavened bread pieces) from Shaanxi Gourmet.
Twitter user @gabchabran tweeted a photo of his kung pau noodle bowl from Roy Choi's spot, the newly opened Chego in Chinatown, and Tony Chen from the blog SinoSoul, shared a photo of his Thai crispy rice sour sausage salad at Tantawan in Rosemead that almost had our faces pressed up against the computer screen.
