ลาบ: a fiery minced salad finished with nutty toasted rice powder.
Fire up Thai Larb with everything from chicken to mushrooms in under 30 minutes!
Originally born in Laos, larb is a minced meat "salad," traditionally made with softly-poached ground chicken or pork. The dish (also called laab) is a perfect balance of sweet, tart, salty, and a punch of spice. Larb's secret lies in the toasted rice powder mixed in at the end, giving the dish a subtle, nutty aroma.
An Omsom starter is a pantry shortcut, combining all the sauces, aromatics, and seasonings you need to cook a specific Asian dish. Recipes are provided - just add protein + veggies!
Hard-to-get ingredients, but we got them. No substitutes, no swaps, just proud, loud Asian flavors without cultural compromise.
We go the distance so you don't have to - sampling from 15+ suppliers for a single ingredient and importing high-quality ingredients directly from Asia that aren't being brought in by any other food brands.

This is the closest I’ve ever been able to come to recreating legit Larb Gai outside of Thailand and/or without a ridiculous amount of money hard to find ingredients that end up going to waste! Thank you, you have a customer for life!
I make a lot of Thai food and in NH sometimes it is hard to get everything I need. These packets are incredible. They are easy and quick and the flavor is so wonderful. Thank you so much for making these meals so much easier to make.
Bought this and the southeast asian sampler for christmas for my partner and we've enjoyed how simple it is to use, with a big flavor payoff. And the recipes inside are great. It's quite clever to provide the ingredients that are packet stable and harder to find garnish, and then suggest in the recipe the ingredients that are best fresh (like basil and mint). The leftover larb was perfect in a thai omelet.
It ruled and we'll definitely be buying again when we run out.
Larb Starter 3-Pack
Great flavor but insufficient sauce for a full pound of chicken. Had to augment with additional lime juice and fish sauce. Packet directions should be for single serving with half pound protein.
