A stroll through the grocery aisles of King Market gives good indication of the fare at the cafe behind the food shelves. Fluffy bundles of mint, cilantro and kaffir lime leaf make their way into steaming bowls of soup. Shaved coconut shells serve as the vessels for coconut water. Fresh Thai eggplant resembling small striped heirloom tomatoes add crisp texture to red curry. And quail eggs bob in velvety stew alongside fish stomach. Chances are the excellent food at the cafe will get you thinking about how to make these Thai and Laotian recipes yourself. Fortunately, the ingredients are all on hand in the nearby shelves and coolers.
