Lao's food

Laos – The distinctive food of...


The food of Laos is delicious and intriguing. The balance of flavours in dishes is different from that of the West and even neighbouring Thailand.

Historically, Lao food has often been regarded as essentially the same as Thai food. Some guidebooks still describe it this way. One reason for this misconception is the popularity and spread of Isaan cuisine in Thailand. This region of north-east Thailand was once Lao territory, and its food has retained many characteristics and dishes of Lao cuisine, for instance, grilled chicken, papaya salad, sticky rice.
