Laab gai (larb gai) is the a northern Laos speciality, eaten at Lao/Thai celebrations. It was a really intense chicken with lime and herbs, kind of like ceviche, and it wasn't really to my taste.
The soop puck was interesting. It was a steamed vegetable dish that came with puffy rice bits, kind of like pieces of breakfast cereal.
The best dish we had was gang hoh. It was like a curry, fairly spicy, served with veggies and thin glass noodles. Overall, I'd say the food was interesting, but not that great. And I was kind of hungry when I left, not a good sign.
|Sorry Laos, this was all we could manage to eat of your national dish.|
|The ice cream, however, was really great: this is coconut and mango.|
