Papaya Salad stall in Vang Vieng

Papaya Salad stall in Vang Vieng

I love to eat Lao green papaya salad or Tam Maak Houng so wherever I go in Laos, I would try to sample the salad along the way. During my stay in Vang Vieng, Laos last year, I asked around for where to get delicious papaya salad and was given direction to one papaya salad store. It was during lunch time and the owner just told me to make one myself the way I like it since she was getting ready to have lunch with her children during school lunch break.

I made Tam Maak Hoong without garlic and no MSG but made sure to use padek for the appearance and for the taste.
