Laotian Food

The main staple of Laotian food is sticky rice.  This comes in a little basket and you pick up little balls of it to dip in your food.  Here I am eating it with laap, a sort of spicy meat salad, which is another Laotian speciality.

In both Laos and Cambodia, you get a lot of fruit shakes.  My favourites are coconut (below) or pineapple.  Avoid the “happy” shakes.

After having any number of crappy sausages as part of some poor attempt at a Western breakfast all over Asia, I have to give a shout out to the Luang Prabang sausage.  It’s not the same as a British banger, but it’s pretty tasty in its own right.
