Lao Green Papaya Salad (Tam Som; ຕໍາສົ້ມ; Tam Mak Hoong; ຕໍາໝາກຫຸ່ງ) and Roasted Pork (Aop Moo; ອົບຫມູ) for lunch in Vientiane, Laos.

Tam Maak Hoong

My Aunt made the Lao Green Papaya Salad and bought the roasted pork from a local market to save time and energy.

Aop Moo

I have never eaten the roasted pork with Tam Mak Hoong so I don’t know if they go together or how good it is. I’m not a big fan of pork and only eat the meat a few times a year in the form of Soured Pork (Som Moo; ສົ້ມໝູ; ສົ້ມຫມູ).
