Piyarat Potha Arreeratn, otherwise known as Chef Bee, brings a taste of Thailand's street food stateside with the newly opened Khong River House in Miami. Chef Bee's khaao pad bpu (crab fried rice) revives day-old rice by studding it with shards of jumbo lump crabmeat and serving it alongside the traditional Thai accompaniment of cucumber and tomato slices. Chef Bee serves this as a side, but we think this dish, especially when paired with the cucumber-tomato salad, is substantial enough to stand on its own.
