Laos Cusine

Contrary to popular belief, Lao Cuisine is not the same as Thai Cuisine. Lao food has its own signatures and deserves recognitions for creativity and genuineness. There is a variety of dishes with many kinds of appetizers, salad, rice, noodles, stew as well as deserts and various ways of cooking methods such as grilling, steaming, frying, searing and mixing. The most special thing is that materials for cooking in Laos are totally fresh. Most of them was obtained from hunting in the forest and immediately cooked without storing in refrigerator. Eating customs in Laos is very special. Like Indian, some kinds of food required eating by hand which will be a life-time experience for tourists.
