Papaya and Rice Noodle Salad with Crab

Lao Green Papaya and Rice Noodle Salad with cooked river crabs (Tam Maak Hoong Sai Khao Poon) for lunch in Vientiane, Laos. I usually eat the papaya salad with the rice noodle on the side. Adding the rice noodle toward the end of the making process is another way of eating the salad.

When I’m lucky enough to be in Laos during crab season, then throwing a few cooked crabs to the Lao Green Papaya and Rice Noodle Salad is a big bonus.

  1. hi I saw your mourning YouTube in Lao. Its peaceful, quiet and you got the whole town to yourself;) I’m in USA, haven’t been back to Lao but thinking to go for 2 weeks in April. I heard its hot that month. saw too many changes in Lao. I want to go where I don’t see too much of a western world.

  2. Hi Sone,
    Thank you for dropping by and for watching my Youtube Channel. I hope you get to enjoy Boun Pi Mai Lao in Vientiane or Luang Prabang and be sure to take some sunscreen since it can be quite hot.
