PJ Stoops, chef of the upcoming Foreign Correspondents restaurant, hosts his third Thai pop-up. The menu, available from 8 to 11 p.m., will feature Gai Yaang Isaan, Som Tam, Naem Si Krong Mu and sticky rice.

Gai Yaang Isaan (Isaan Grilled Chicken) is one of the most popular dishes of the Isaan region of North Eastern Thailand. The chicken is marinated, then butterflied and slowly grilled over coals. It's usually served with sweet chili sauce and sticky rice.

Som Tam (Papaya Salad) is originally a Lao dish, but the salad is widely loved throughout Thailand. While the Thai version tends to be sweet and slightly sour, the Isaan version is more pungent. Some of the flavor comes from pla raa (fermented fish paste).

Naem Si Krong Mu (Fermented Pork Ribs) is a traditional Thai charcuterie in which pork ribs are fermented in a paste of cooked rice and salt before being fried and eaten with herbs.
