The magic of cooking is the ability to transform something simple, such as rice, peanuts and sausage, into something unforgettable. And that’s exactly what the Thai chef Saipin Chutima has done at her recently expanded Commercial Center restaurant. This crispy salad might be the world’s greatest finger food. Eaten in the hollow of a cabbage leaf, accompanied by a cold one, it’s at the very least the world’s greatest beer snack. $7.95, 953 E. Sahara Ave., 735-3033,saipinchutima.com.
