Fresno CA, best lowland Lao
Anyone from, or passing through Fresno should try the B&K Asian Kitchen on First St. between Olive and McKinley. I have eaten there several times a year for at least 15 years or more. My favorite dish is Phat Phet with any of the four meats - chicken, beef, pork or shrimp. If you like your food hot, be sure and tell them if you're occidental looking, otherwise they'll assume you want it mild. Most of the other stuff is good too, usually no one else in the party is up to the phat phet.
