Sab-E-Lee dishes I should order?

going to the Linda Vista location soon with a friend. I haven't been in a while and would love any favorite suggestions.

  1. Drunken Noodles. Tom Yum and Tom Kha soups. Spicy Fried Rice w/beef. Penang Curry.

    I started eating there just a year ago and I haven't explored the menu enough to feel like I really know the place yet. I order spice level 3 for hot dishes, or 2 if I'm with my girlfriend. 3 seems like a good balance of heat.

      Thanks! Last time I was there a #5 hotness killed me. I'll go 3.

    2. Somtum (papaya salad), panang curry, and chicken larb are my stand-bys. They have a Volcano Fish dish at the one in Santee that I really like, but I don't think it's on the menu at the original location.

      1. Raw Beef. It's not raw.

        1. I have an almost constant craving for the Pork Larb. I really enjoy the Green Papaya Salad, the Raw Beef Salad and Steamed Pork Leg with Rice. My wife loves their soups and the Kai Kua. Love that place!

          1. Our standby dishes are the salty fish fried rice, duck larb, spicy raw beef, red curry, and pork leg with spicy basil sauce.
