Laos. Food. Amazing. Take a Look.
We went to a little outdoor place along the side of the road. This truck, packed full of motorcycles bound for Viet Nam, was right beside us. I couldn’t help noticing a very interesting detail about this truck:
The Rambo mudflaps! That gave us a good laugh. There were some beggar kids hanging around but I got the impression that they weren’t really beggars – they just wanted us to buy them lunch. That didn’t happen. But here’s what we did eat:
This is a dish of mixed vegetables and beef, Lao style that Hui-chen ordered. The chef was Chinese and the restaurant was run by a Chinese lady, so I’m not sure if the flavor was more influenced by local tastes or regional Chinese tastes. But no matter what, it was great.
I wanted the fried shrimp but they were out, so I settled on the fried chicken. This version was really good and I wish I could have had it in the evening with some Lao whisky.
