Aunt Kian didn’t feel like cooking for lunch today. After buying a few things from the food stalls at the Mekong Riverside area, she made a stop at Kok Pho Market to buy a few more dishes to take home.
It’s quite affordable to buy these cooked food to take home for lunch or dinner. A portion of Bamboo Shoot Soup or Stew is about 1 dollar. You can even buy a smaller portion for like 50 cents.
If I was living in Vientiane, Laos, I wouldn’t need to cook everyday and can just drop by the market during the weekdays to buy lunch or dinner. But on the weekend, it would be nice to have a big feast like Pun Pa, Khao Poon, or Fondue with friends and family members.
