Another Noodle

Would you believe that in Luang Prabang, a food mecca for some, we kind of struck out? I can't explain but I can certainly make excuses. This was certainly not Luang Prabang's fault. We tried some of the well regarded restaurants, tracked down some of the must try food items, but the stars never aligned. We ate food that we liked, but never found our groove other than what I've posted on already. Oh well, we can't always eat our favorite meals.

I will offer this one bit of advice: proceed directly to the night market and try the pick and point items on display. Bring a plate, or bowl, or something as it's all take away. You'll be glad you did. Happy hunting!

Anyhow, here's another bowl of noodles to look at. After what we thought was enough noodles for a while, we had to try a concoction called Khao Soi, spotted along the main drag placed in between two restaurants selling croissants and lattes. Not the same as the lovely northern Thai noodle, but worth checking out.

Kind of like Pho, but richer and spicier owing to a well seasoned pork. Served with greens and the previously discussed suki sauce.
