Every part of this dish is begging to get into the food hall of fame. Mung beans come from Asia and lot of times mentioned as superfood due to its numerous health benefits. But most importantly it is delicious. We cook slowly the shelled beans in a spicy coconut milk. It resembles the taste of Laksa, our Malaysian super hero, but the risotto form and the mung beans give it another kick and depth. Topped with a warm salsa of shrimps, young radish, and Chef Tibi’s own Moroccan inspired lime preserve. Are you a real foodie? You cannot find this composition anywhere else just here, at Funky Pho.
