As I already shared in an earlier post: Top 5 Lao food to eat on a budget, Lao food is not that impressive like Thai or Indonesian food.
Luang Prabang food
I was quite disappointed by Lao food when I first arrived in Luang Prabang, but I had to find some nice food to enjoy time in Luang Prabang. Here is my food that I found in Luang Prabang!
Luang Prabang food: Breakfast
1.Lao Sticky Rice stick
I saw this selling in front of an elementary school in Luang Prabang. It is made of sticky rice and eggs, and then it is grilled on the fire. There’s nothing special about this little snack. But it won’t hurt to try since it’s really cheap and you can try what Lao people eat in the morning.
2.Lao fried vegetables and bread
I saw a food cart selling fried sweet potatoes and thin bread. They taste a bit salty and sweet. I’m sure not many people can resist the temptation of oil, flour, salt and sugar! 😉 Quite greasy, but I liked it. You can try and see whether you like it or not! 😉
Luang Prabang food: Lunch
3.Lao Noodle soup
I know noodle soup is not a typical Lao food, but noodles are available in many restaurants and even some food stalls for lunch (or dinner). The portion of noodle soup is big, so it’s quite filling. It tastes good, the price is reasonable. There’s no reason not to try while you are in Luang Prabang.
4.Lao Papaya Salad
Lao Papaya salad is on the must-try dish in Lao, I tried and I didn’t like it. Compared to Thai Papaya salad, it’s too fishy for me at least. But if you like the Asian fish sauce, then I think you might like it. It’s up to you to try Lao Papaya Salad or not. Tell me how it was for you after trying Lao Papaya Salad!
Luang Prabang food: Dinner
Luang Prabang’s food world comes alive after 5: 30 pm when the night market starts open. Then you have access to many different kinds of food and snacks. Luang Prabang food guide: Dinner will be continued in my next post.
