Larb Moo

This spicy-sour-salty Thai dish of minced pork with chilli, garlic, fish sauce and lime juice is often eaten as an appetiser, but it can also be served as a light main course, with a bowl of steamed white rice.

Hongkongers have a healthy appreciation for the spicy, tangy flavours of Thai food, and the territory's Thai community of 30,000 has much to offer. Since the 1990s, the five blocks of Kowloon City south of Carpenter Road Park and west of South Wall Road have been affectionately known as Little Thailand for their concentration of Thai-run shops and restaurants.

Chillies can make or break a meal: use one too many in a dish and they deaden taste buds, masking subtle flavours that normally would be enhanced. Use too few and you lose the oomph.

One of my favourite salads is larb. Like many Thai dishes, it has complex, light flavours that are refreshing in this hot weather. It is quick and easy to make - you can probably put it together in less time than it takes to steam the rice.
