This was my second time dining at Tamarind Restaurant. I had a great time sharing the Pun Pa with a family of tourists. Our waiter explained things in details about each dishes. We started out with fried Khai Paen served with various Jeow or Lao Dipping Sauce. Then it was time for the main feast, Pun Pa. Dessert consists of tropical fruits, sweet purple sticky rice with shredded coconut and tamarind jam on the side. The portions were large enough and we had some left-over food. My dinning companions were generous and allowed me to take the remaining food home for breakfast the next day.
