Yoshie had a Ramen and Friends lunch at Larb Ubol in Hell’s Kitchen. She and Rob like the chef’s other restaurants in Queens.
I got lost because there were so many Thai restaurants in this area on 9th Ave. I remembered it had Larb in the name though. I always wanted to know what Larb was. I’ve seen it on menus. Turns out it’s minced meat salad. I tried the Chicken Larb. Kind of tasted like Chicken Salad …you know, like if you got a chicken salad sandwich?
I felt like Homer Simpson saying, “Larb! Larb! Larb! Larb!” in silly melody. I don’t know if he ever said that, but it seems like it he would.
I liked the Roast Pork and Crispy Pork a lot. That was good.
