Tasty Lao dishes to be liked by Yunnan tourists
When the China-Laos railway opens to traffic in 2012, the morning train from Kunming will reach Xishuangbanna in 3 hours and Vientiane in the evening. More Yunnan tourists are expected to visit Laos, and here are some tasty Lao dishes that will be favored by them.
Laab, also known as Larb , is a typical dish in Laos. It's usually eaten as a part of a set (laab, papaya, pepper, parsley, tomato, and sticky rice). Similar to Dali's raw hides, it has a unique taste.
No.2: Grilled sausage
A popular food in Luang Prabang, the grilled sausage is a must-try dish featuring tropical herbs and spices.
The pounded papaya is highly visible in Laos. It is sour, delicious, a most popular dish in Laos.
No.4: Hot pot
The Lao hot pot is coupled with a barbecue, with the BBQ stove embedded in the middle. The dipping sauce can be made by the diner.
No.5: Rice noodles
Though looking like rice noodles in Yunnan, the Luang Prabang rice noodles taste different. For people in Yunnan, you’d better to visit there and try it in preson.
No.6: Grilled banana
This is a well-known snack in Laos. Hope you like it!
