Green Papaya Salad at Luang Prabang Night Market

After walking through the food stalls at the night market and knowing what kind of Lao dishes are available, I was in the mood for good old Tam Mak Hoong ຕໍາໝາກຫຸ່ງ (Lao green papaya salad) with either a grilled fish or Lao BBQ chicken.

I ordered a plate of Lao Green Papaya Salad from a stall in the middle of the night market food alley. I bought some grilled chicken wing and found a spot on a bench next to other tourists for a chow down time.

fried spring rolls

Just to make sure I won’t be hungry later on, I added five fried spring rolls to the plate. Let’s just say I ate more than I should have for the night.
