Questions:

Larb is a popular dish at many American Thai restaurants, but its origin is more accurately associated with what landlocked Thai neighbor?

Click to Reveal Answer
LAOS

Larb is typically a salad of minced meat, chilies (often with other flavorful vegetables), and ground rice, dressed with lime juice and seasoned with assorted herbs and spices. One of those herbs is usually WHAT AROMATIC LEAF, which unlike most of its relatives is more commonly used to flavor sweet confections than savory dishes?

Click to Reveal Answer
MINT

Another larb ingredient I didn't mention by name in the previous question is paedek, a Lao version of WHAT ASIAN CONDIMENT, beloved worldwide for its umami flavor?

Click to Reveal Answer
FISH SAUCE

Commonwealthers are advised that larb does not consist of a mixture of dried fruits, spices, distilled spirits, and suet. WHAT IS THIS PIE FILLING CALLED, which might understandably be confused with larb's makeup?

Click to Reveal Answer
MINCEMEAT

You're not likely to find it at your local Thai takeout spot, but many larb traditionalists prefer the dish made with raw meat. This can be risky, as raw pork (for example) may contain cysts of a muscle-burrowing parasite that causes WHAT DISEASE?

Click to Reveal Answer
TRICHINOSIS

A larb-like salad typically made from raw fish or shrimp is known by WHAT THREE-LETTER WORD, probably more familiar to English speakers as a name for (non-food) fish from a different Asian language?

Click to Reveal Answer
KOI

Nearby larb on many Thai menus, you are likely to encounter pad kee mao, one of my favorites, a spicy, basil-heavy dish often translated literally by WHAT BESOTTED PHRASE?

Click to Reveal Answer
DRUNKEN NOODLES (or DRUNKARD'S NOODLES, DRUNK-MAN NOODLES)

Not all meat salads are as tangy and well-balanced as larb. This is a still from the 2011 video "Meat Salad," created by WHAT SWANSONIAN YOUTUBE CHANNEL that surfed to popularity on the waves of the post-post-irony era's "Bacon Everything" trend?

EPIC MEAL TIME

I only wanna die alive,
Never by the hands of a broken heart.
Don't wanna hear you lie tonight,
Now that I've become who I really larb
.

After eating larb, I ended up singing the 2014 hit "Break Free" all night (having modified, in bold above, its infamously ungrammatical lyric). Blame the restaurant, as their playlist seemed to consist solely of this and other songs by WHAT ARTIST?

Click to Reveal Answer
ARIANA GRANDE

Without fully doxxing the restaurant where I ate larb, I will tell you that it lies on the outskirts of a midtown Manhattan neighborhood known for its fashion label headquarters and showrooms, giving it WHAT SARTORIAL NAME?

Click to Reveal Answer
GARMENT DISTRICT

Shortly after my larb was finished, I made use of WHAT POPULAR ENTERTAINMENT SERVICE, whose financial auditor recently expressed "substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern," feeding a growing public skepticism about this too-good-to-be-true enterprise?

Two answers required. Larb, like all things, has appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe; a 2017 film features an amusing conversation about larb between WHAT TWO CHARACTERS, dining out at a Thai restaurant in their native Queens?
