You can order Moo Manao in Thai restaurants, the taste is like pork with seafood sauce so it is not difficult to make. For the one who likes spicy and sour, I will recommend that you should try this one. 🙂
We usually have it with boiled rice at 24 hours restaurants, or Thai people will eat as something to go with alcohol drink.
