This gourmet safari visits local restaurants, hole-in-the-wall eateries, markets, factories and outdoor kitchens ? so you can sample a smorgasbord of authentic and modern Lao food. We'll start the tour by helping to make and then tasting kao larm, the delicious traditional dessert of sticky rice and coconut roasted in bamboo tubes. Then you'll visit a local fresh food market to check out the amazing diversity of Lao food, and stop for a while in the market for a traditional Lao coffee. 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. Have a peek in the kitchen and watch the frenetic preparation for the lunchtime rush!
