31. Nam Prik Kaphi
Nam prik kaphi is an assortment of steamed vegetables and perhaps a small fish, eaten with rice, and a pungent fermented shrimp paste chili sauce. Carts around town sell steamed cabbage, eggplant, string beans, and other vegetables as well as small salted fish, like plah tu, for take away nam prik kaphi.
The thick sauce with its salty and fishy taste gives everything a complex flavor. Certainly not for those who don't care for fishy-ness.
