Re: “Why Oakland's Nyum Bai Is Poised for National Acclaim

Good review, makes me want to try this place.
One quibble: At a time when use of the N word can have serious career consequences, why are we continuing to use the term "kaffir lime" for [ital]Citrus hystrix? One doesn't have to be from South Africa to know that the K word is a highly offensive term used there by white people to demean black people. While there is some debate over the derivation of the name of the fruit (the most benign argument being that both this name and the racial epithet come from an Arabic root meaning non-Muslims or "infidels,"), it remains a highly charged term for many people. Fortunately, there is an increasingly common alternative name from its Thai homeland, "makrut." Just as the Spanish word cilantro is now the near-universal term for fresh coriander, and the Italian arugula has displaced rocket and roquette in nearly every cuisine, American diners can get used to the Thai name in any culinary context.
