The fried duck mouth was slightly crispy and very well seasoned. If I had to compare the taste of this dish, it would be a chicken flavor. But don’t get freaked out by several stiff bones. It was more like eating the exterior and peeling the meat off the bone. I actually liked it a lot.
Then came the Lod Chong. Lod Chong is pandanus soft noodle (rice flour) in coconut milk with shaved ice (sweet from coconut sugar). I felt like I was eating a dessert soup. It wasn’t too sweet and was really tasty.
The food was so delicious and the staff was so kind and accommodating. If you can’t make it to Thailand to visit, Somtum Der has a New York location as well. Add it to your bucket list. Thanks so much Thai Select for this awesome restaurant recommendation.
