Neua Yang Nam Tok – Waterfall Grilled Beef Salad

As it is with larb, this is a famous and well loved Issarn dish. You should be able to spot the similar characteristics simply by looking at the ingredients and how it is served. Only the freshest and very good quality beef should be used for this dish; We like to use either rump or beef fillets, the latter of course will cost a little more but it sure makes a huge difference to the final dish.
