Luang Prabang’s particular food specialties are good to try while visiting and include sweet coconut biscuits….
dried buffalo which is good boiled and used in stews and also with sweet chilli dip…..
crispy deep fried Mekong river weed (great with a beer) .
Orlam (stew with plenty of dill)…
Green papaya salad (that differs to the green Papaaya salad as it uses a pungent fermented fish sauce )
smokey eggplant dip…
deep fried mushrooms…..
deep fried bamboo shoots….
and Lao Salad (with a French inspired creamy egg based dressing)
Also, common are laap and red curries with sticky rice as well as the French inspired baguettes and croissants.
Tamarind restaurant and Dyen Sabai restaurant are good spots to try platters of Luang Prabang/Lao specialities…
