7. PAPAYA SALAD – TIGER MAMA (Boston)
Spice lovers rejoice! The list of ingredients in the octo papaya salad at Tiger Mama includes sushi-grade tako (tentacle of the octopus), green papaya, tomatoes, peanuts and “hot hot chilis.” Known for preparing fiery dishes, Southeast Asian cuisine used peppercorn to spice up its fare long before the discovery of chili peppers.
