Nam Tok Moo is a Thai dish that can either refer to a soup or a meat dish. They are two totally different dishes so when you order it in a Thai restaurant you need to specify what you want. Though they are two totally different dish they share a common ingredient which I guess not most of us would want and its blood, yeah you’ve seen that right, “blood”. Before I thought its only black pudding and dinuguan which uses blood in its ingredient, well I was wrong.
Now to further define this Thai dishes the soup version is made out of hot broth, noodles, bean sprouts, pork, liver, dumplings, vegetables, spices and raw blood. The meat version (this post) is made out of rare grilled pork where juices together with blood still runs while its thinly sliced, it is then dressed with ground roasted rice, ground dried chillies, fish sauce, lime juice, shallots and mint. The name when translated to English means “waterfall pork” which might define how liquid runs though the meat while it’s sliced. Traditionally the meat dish is consumed with sticky rice and raw vegetables. Another must try dish especially when it made into the list of CNN Go’s World’s 50 most delicious foods in 2011
