For my time that spent in Luang Prabang I visited many shops and restaurants, all trying to get a bit of the culture under my belt. I heard the food was just as good as Thailand but not as spicy I heard they used a lot of lime and mint, I heard many things. If you have the time, head down to Sisavangvong Street, as it closes down to traffic for the every night street market. You will be sure to find something that interests you.
I was excited and spent a good portion of my time wandering the stalls and smelling a variety of foods. All the shops and stall are delicious and at decent prices too. Don’t worry you won’t need to negotiate any prices here, they are already low. Anyone can get filled up here from the smallest of people to the sumo’s or the biggest of athletes. There is something for everyone here. Several buffets with all you can fit on one plate for 10,000 baht, ($1.25). To traditional soups, and sticky rice sweets, hardy dishes, individual items, grilled meats, fish, duck, port, buffalo jerky a vast array of vegetarian dishes and fruit stands.
If you’re not too sure about the cheap street meats and all you can eat buffet’s head over to one of the elegant restaurants that will serve up something special for you or ask for the special of the day. Many of the fine hotels will have a restaurant and chef on staff for your needs.
Luang Prabang street food is a colorful symphony flavors that illuminates the mind and senses. A one of a kind for South East Asia.
