Food and Dining in Laos

Laos Travel Guide

Laos restaurants tend to be local spots serving typical rice and noodle dishes, as well as French restaurants that offer baguettes and pastries. The local cuisine is similar to Thai and Vietnamese, with sticky rice, fresh herbs, and larb (spicy marinated meat salad) commonly served in most restaurants.

When travelling to Laos (and just about any foreign destination), having an open mind will serve you well. Street food is available throughout Laos, but be sure to check if the place is clean enough if you tend to have a sensitive stomach.
