Khao Poon (ເຂົ້າປຸ້ນ)for breakfast in Vientiane, Laos. The relatives have been busy preparing for a birthday party with guests arriving around lunch time. By 8:00 AM they were hungry and treating themselves to a bowl of Khao Poon before getting back to more cooking and cleaning up the place.

I like attending birthday party hosted by a Lao person because there is always a big pot of Khao Poon or spicy rice vermicelli soup on the table. Whether in Laos or abroad, this dish is often served at a Lao home during a gathering of many events. You can always find a big pot of Khao Poon at Boun Pi Mai (Lao New Year), wedding, birthday, Boun (festival). This dish is a favorite for kids and adults alike.
