Pomelo salad (Yum Som-O)

I just got back from Thailand where I fell in love with this spicy, citrusy salad - Pomelo salad (yum som-o). ... Before I try to recreate this on my own, does anyone have any idea if I can find this anywhere in the Boston area. I already checked the menus of all the usual suspects: Dok Bua, Montien, S&I with no luck.

  1. If you're on very familiar terms with a favorite Thai restaurant, my suggestion is that you bring in your own pomelo fruit and ask if they would make you a yam som oo. Don't be embarrassed at the scenario; they should be thrilled to make it if you let them keep some to snack on in the kitchen, and they should have all the complimentary ingredients like fried shallot, nuts, dried fish, roasted rice, etc. to make it with.
