The quirky older man who lives in the bush and grows incredible finger limes.
The cute Thai / Filipino / Cambodian lady selling homegrown galangal, kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, and home made chilli sambals that can blow your brains out.
The token black dude who sells all the cool spices that no one else has heard the name of, let alone tried.
You should visit that person’s stall. And buy galangal, kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, and fresh chillies. As soon as humanly possible.
Why? You ask. Oh sweet reader, because then you can make Tom Yum soup, which is possibly the most delicious symphony of sweet, sour, salty, spicy, and something-I-can’t-describe-in-words, imaginable.
