What to Expect
We’ll start the tour by watching the making of and then tasting kao larm, the delicious traditional dessert of sticky rice and coconut roasted in bamboo tubes. Visit a local fresh food market to check out the amazing diversity of Lao food, then stop by a Lao coffee shop to try some of the local brew.

For lunch we visit the most popular kao piak shop in town. Kao piak is a traditional Lao breakfast or lunch soup made with a fragrant broth and thick handmade rice flour noodles. Watch the preparation for the lunchtime rush and learn how this delicious soup is made. Then sit down and enjoy your lunch with the locals! Stop at a tham mak houng (green papaya salad) stall where you’ll learn how to make papaya salad just the way you like it.

After lunch, visit the Xaoban Homemade Yoghurt factory, where you’ll sample a range of their wares and see how Xaoban products are made with fresh organic ingredients, and get an idea of the challenges for food production in Laos. Finish off with a BeerLao and some deep fried bugs at a popular beer bar on the Mekong.
