Herbs, Salad, & Martinis in SE Asia

Jump to last reply

A SE Asia potpourri trip (Hanoi, Luang Prabang, Siem Riep, and Bangkok unfortunately postponed from October has now, more happily, been rescheduled for late January. I have read on these pages and elsewhere (and have been to SE Asia 15 years ago so have some albeit dated experience) that drinks with ice and dishes containing raw or unpeeled vegetables should be avoided. However, in these destinations, there seem to be lovely restaurants that festoon their plates with fresh herbs and lettuces that are integral components of the meal. Also, atmospheric pubs and cocktail bars either in hotels, restaurants, or on their own appear to abound in these venues offering welcoming libations (with or shaken with ice) that would be tasty and refreshing after a day of exploration and discovery. I would like to indulge in these foods and drink (in moderation, of course), but am concerned about the wisdom of doing so. I am not seeking guarantees of robust health on the road, but would welcome advice from hungry and thirsty travelers more experienced than I in such culinary pursuits in SE Asia.
