Best Use of Catfish (2008)


Avatar of true Isaan Thai cooking, ZABB surprised us earlier this year with its fiery salads, Vietnamese-leaning noodle soups, made-from-scratch curries, and especially, its Mekong River catfish. The latter explodes with flavor in laab, a salad that matches shredded fish with mint, chiles, lemongrass, lime juice, and gingery galangal.
