Lemon Grass Soup & Fried Basil and Pork

School lunch tomorrow is one of my favourites, green curry with bamboo shoots. This came in at number 9 on the list. Surprisingly, one of my other favourites didn't get onto the Top 10. This is Fried chilli with pork and long-beans which only pulled in 2% of the vote. What about your favourties? Are they in the top 10?
