Best Papaya Salad 

Saigon Noodle & Grill
710 S. Goldenrod Road, 407-658-1967,

This salad offers a perfect balance of all the things we love about Southeast Asian food – all at once sweet, spicy, salty, crunchy, earthy, herbaceous. A pile of freshly shaved green papaya is topped with carrot, peanuts, mint, basil, dried shrimp and perfectly dressed with a sheen of fish-sauce spiked dressing. Choose your protein topping (though it seems unnecessary with such perfection already in play) – shrimp and pork or shrimp and squid.
