Laos' Food

Excellent and everywhere, as in most South East Asian countries. Lao and Thai cuisine are similar in many ways. All kinds of vegetables, pork, chicken, duck, beef, fish are combined with rice or noodles. Lemon grass, mint, coriander, chilies, tamarind, onions, garlic create the spicy taste. Fermented fish mixtures are often used for seasoning. Most tropical fruits from durian to watermelon are available on the markets. French bread (baguette) is sold in the morning, excellent for breakfast or in combination with fresh salad.

What to drink? Water, fresh fruit juice/shakes, tea, coffee, rice whisky and (of course) the excellent Beerlao.

Prices for food range from a few hundred Kip for market food up to 10.000 Kip or more for a meal in a restaurant. A typical foe (noodle soup) is served at foodstalls on the street for 1.000-2.000 Kip. Softdrinks are sold for about 2.000 Kip, a bottle of Beerlao costs 3.000-4.000 Kip.
