Food Trip Friday 032: Thai eggplant and ground pork



Don't let this sorry-looking photo stop you from ordering this at the Lemon Grass Restaurant. It tastes better than it looks. It definitely made up for the lousy pad thai and green chicken curry that we ordered along side this dish.


The ground pork sits on top of grilled (and peeled) eggplant splashed with a sweet-and-sour sauce. The Thai basil and mint provides extra herbal goodness while the peanuts give it a nutty/crunchy factor.
