Here lies everything you were denied in a Hostess cupcake: three stories of stout-happy chocolate cake, darker than the jungle and stacked with bittersweet ganache. The whole thing oozes salted caramel sauce. Wicked.
The briny crab stock exalts with Asian aromatics. Shrimp meatballs throw sparks of chile and fish sauce. Thin rice noodles slither everywhere. Herbs, seasonal surprises, fried shallots, and pickled Thai chiles sweeten the deal.
