I went to Toko Cheung Kong grocery store in Rotterdam today to stock up on a few essentials like fish sauce, shrimp paste, oyster sauce, and chili peppers. I was happy to found a few green papaya and phak bong on the shelves. To my surprise I noticed Sai Oua Som or Lao Soured Sausage and Sai Kork or Lao Sausage from Paris, France. I bought a bag of each to try out.

Now, I’m ready to treat myself to some Tum Mak Houng or Lao Green Papaya Salad. 🙂
