Yam Wun Sen

Yum Woon Sen is a Thai dish. A salad comprising glass noodles (woon sen), topped seafood and aromatics, seasoned with fish sauce and lime juice, mixed together (yum), typically served as an appetizer.
DID YOU KNOW? Delirium Tremens is the rapid onset of symptoms caused by alcohol withdrawal, both mental (e.g. disorientation, nightmares) and physical (e.g., shivers, sweating), usually lasting for a few days, sometimes fatal. Suffering from DT is sometimes referred to as “seeing pink elephants” – pink elephants being a common metaphor for drunken hallucination.
In light of my recent health exam (see 13.004 Dal Makhani Etc), I anticipate seeing big fat pink elephants in my near future.
The salad was okayish. The components were a bit clumsy, as if the chef had chopped them with his eyes closed. The noodles were a tad overcooked and mushy/clumpy. But it tasted fine.
