Laotian food is not unexpected as it bears similarity to the Thai and Vietnamese food, and even a strong culture of the French.
Noodles and rice are the stable food in Laos, not to forget tons of baguette everywhere.
Located at one of the seaside stalls just right in front of my inn,
this particular dish was my first meal in Laos, which also left a distinct impression of Laotian food in me.
White vermicelli sprinkled with peanuts and stir-fried with vegetables. It might look innocent but by god it is the freakishly spiciest food I have ever tasted since… I don’t know? Since since since.. since I drank that bottle of Tobaccos sauce by accident. No I’m just kidding, not that idiotic yet but I assume it would taste about the same.
It’s nice, no doubt. That is if you can handle the spiciness of the sauce.
The other very unique that sent tickles down my tummy (like really funny dish) was the fried crispy noodle with vegetables.
They weren’t joking about the crispy part.
It’s like eating Twisties, without all the salty seasonings and it’s dipped in diluted salty sauce and vegetables.
I can’t get myself around to get used to this dish though.
I still prefer Twisties on its own.
