Lao Food In a Glance

Lao food consists of some Siamese and Vietnamese influence, hence it is not easy to learn about Lao food in a day.

It is even possible to have tried most of Lao Food in two days.

There's a lot of soup and fried noodle, fruits, baguette and salads involved.

First there are a lot of fruit shakes.

banana pineapple shake

This drink of mine is banana and pineapple shake, I asked them to make it. Pretty good I'd say.

lao salad

The Lao salad. Made differently by different stalls but the concept is the same.

chicken noodle soup

Chicken soup noodle, one of the more stable dish. You can find this everywhere.

chicken soup

Chicken soup, mainly consist of raw vegetables, chicken and Maggi seasoning packet in soup.

noodle soup

Noodle soup. More vegetables than noodles.

fried rice noodle with vegetables

Fried Rice Noodle with vegetables. This is quite yummy. But it gets dull after you eat it for what seems like weeks. Everything is practically the same. It's good still though.

mix fruit yogurt

One of my favourite. Mix fruit with yogurt. Easy to make, nice to eat. Laotian yogurts are mainly very sweet, so mixing it with fruits creates the perfect concoction.

Influenced heavily by the Siamese, you can also find the famous Mango sticky rice with coconut milk here in Laos.

mango sticky rice and coconut milk - laos

However this stall made it rather differently and I find it too sweet to eat.

sticky rice

The sticky rice isn't as sticky and cooked too. I much prefer Thai sticky rice.

pumpkin egg thing

The only "odd" food I have been during my stay in Laos. Egg and yam custard in between pumpkin slice, pretty sweet stuff. Goes well with sticky rice, but comes off better as a dessert dish itself.
