I ate a great deal of mussels last week. I even tried making Or Hoy Ga Pong or Mussels Stew using many of the ingredients that would normally be in a typical Lao Stew. It was not a waste of an experiment and I would attempt again in the future when I can find more herbs that are essentials to this dish.

I also made spicy dipping sauce for Mussels Stew to give the extra kick for the meal.
