People do wonder, why the popularity hasn't reached other parts, as it's that good! This dish is made out of sweet curry based on pork and served in leaves of the cha Muang tree. This tree is, in fact, found only these parts. The incorporation of the leaves gives the dish a fine texture making it crispy and crunchy.
