Nam Varn

Nam Varn

Various Lao desserts or Nam Varn (ນ້ຳຫວານ) stalls at Luang Prabang Market Fair (ຕະຫຼາດນັດ) for Lao New Year or Pi Mai Lao celebration.

The Market Fair opens at 6:00 AM to 12:00 PM and everyone in town were busy walking around looking for good deals and good food. I was a bit surprised to see the young and the old having a bowl of dessert, Nam Varn at 7:00 AM.

There were all types of Nam Varn available for as little as 3,000 KIP per bowl. I didn’t even eat breakfast yet but the weather was so warm and humid that a cold sweet bowl of Nam Varn Lod Chong would really cool me down for a few minutes.
