    i love me some stink bean. thais call it sataw (please not 'sato', it's สะตอ) and go crazy for it twice a year.
    Parkia speciosa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    i think most thais eat it with shrimp but my wife cooks up a mean spicy curry with chicken (pad kreuang gaeng gai sataw). the bean's crunchy texture and slightly bitter taste perfectly compliments a spicy dish over rice. just watch out later...the smell coming out makes the aftereffects of asparagus seem undetectable--hence the name.

    ^ Known in Malaysia as patai. My wife was looking over my shoulder and I asked, "Do you like this?" "Blegh!" Was her immediate response.

    I hate it...makes your pee smell funny, too.
