In this edition of Sietsema's Secrets, Robert and the video crew head to Hell's Kitchen newcomer Larb Ubol where chef/restaurateur Ratchanee Sumpatboon cooks traditional Isan Thai fare. In the clip above, chef Ratchanee makes a few of the restaurant's best dishes, including a fiery som tum salad, and the pork and eggplant stir fry called pad ped moo krob. Sietsema says of the latter: "If you haven't tried Isan food before, you've never tasted anything quite like it."
