Nongseum restaurant in Vientiane, Laos is a favorite place to hang out during the weekend for many Vientiane residents. It is always full during the holidays because it’s so popular for people to go eat with family members and friends. There is a playground for the children to entertain themselves while the adults are happily drinking Beer Lao away.
People can sit around in a hut and enjoy a variety of Lao dishes in Lao style dining of course. The view is great with the water and the rice field in the distance. I’ve only been to Nongseum twice with my relatives.
The first time at Nongseum, we went straight to the hut for lunch and I didn’t get a chance to explore the ground. The second time we had little kids with us. The little ones wanted to hang out in the playground and feeding the animals in the cages. I felt so bad for the animals though, they shouldn’t be in the cages like that with so little room.
