Welcome to the ultimate Lao food tour of Vientiane, Laos. This was an amazing day of eating in Vientiane, and I’ll include all the details of where and what we ate below.

Khao Gee Mae Sab – First thing in the morning we met up with Joe for breakfast. He took us to a place called Khao Gee Mae Sab, specializing in baguettes with pate and other cured meats. One of the best things about this place is that they make everything they use in house. Their pan of eggs was a great way to get started on this food tour.
Total price – 66,000 LAK ($7.94)

Wat Si Saket – We also did some travet attractions within this food tour day, so after breakfast we walked around Wat Si Saket for a little while.
Entrance – 10,000 LAK ($1.20)

Tam Luang Prabang – Thanks to Joe, this is one of the best green papaya salad spots I’ve ever had in my life. The owner is from Luang Prabang, but even in Luang Prabang I didn’t have as good of salad as here. Her green banana salad was also unbelievable.
Total price – 102,000 LAK ($12.28)

Patuxai – One of the main landmarks of Vientiane is Patuxai, a war memorial, to remember the struggle for independence in Laos.

Pa Kham Tan Restaurant (more details: https://migrationology.com/laap-restaurant-vientiane/) – Again, a huge thank you to Joe for this recommendation for laab (laap, also spelled larb sometimes in English). Laab is one of the ultimate dishes of Lao cuisine, and this restaurant serves some of the best laab I’ve ever had. I loved the bile, and the strong and colorful use of herbs.
Total price – 123,000 LAK ($14.80)

Anna Grilled Duck – For dinner we met up with new friends to eat at Anna Grilled Duck. Along with grilled duck marinated in fish sauce, the highlight of the meal was baeng pet, raw duck blood soup and toppings. It’s a delicacy in Laos, and it’s unbelievably delicious.
Thank you Mee and Billy for dinner!

It was an ultimate day of delicious Lao food in Vientiane!
