I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2016…

Ho Mok was definitely one of the most unique and interesting dishes I have tried in a long time. This is rather obscure Southereast Asian dish that is essentially a steamed fish custard. It’s much better than it sounds. The two pots of rich, creamy mousse are comprised of striped bass and a coconut based red curry. Maximum flavor is revealed through herbal kaffir lime and sweet Thai basil. Its unique texture and rich complex flavor make this a must try.   Price: $4
