Tam Mak Hoong ຕໍາໝາກຫຸ່ງ (Lao Green Papaya Salad) for lunch at Nang Khao Papaya Salad Restaurant, located at Ban Mano, Luang Prabang, Laos.


This papaya salad restaurant is one of the most popular places for the local to hang out during lunch time. We arrived right after lunch break time for the workers, students, and still have to wait a few orders a head of us.

I bought some Som Moo ສົ້ມໝູ (soured pork), buffalo rinds, and Luang Prabang fried mushroom from Pa Bua Kham Jeow Bong shop to have with our lunch. When I saw a few sticky rice in bamboo tubes (Khao Larm; ເຂົ້າຫຼາມ) at the papaya salad restaurant, I bought one to go with Tam Mak Hoong.
