Khao Poon Talat Khuadin

Khao Poon Talat Khuadin

Having a big bowl of Khao poon ເຂົ້າປຸ້ນ (Lao laksa or spicy Lao rice vermicelli soup) for lunch in Vientiane, Laos.

I wanted to learn how to make this soup the way they do it in Laos. It was on my list to do things for going to Laos this year. Unfortunately, my two aunts didn’t have time for me since it was wedding season and they had a lot of work to do, making dresses and blouses for people attending the wedding the entire month.

One morning, I walked to Talat Khuadin to buy Khao Poon in plastic bags and walked to the relative’s house to bring them lunch. I was a distance of 8 km, just one kilometer more to what I’m used to walking in Holland on a regular basis.

It was a nice lunch and I needed to walk walk off the meal in the afternoon. It probably took a few more days of walking to get rid of the calories or else I’ll get fat eating so much good food whenever I am in Laos.
