It’s afternoon snack time in Vientiane, Laos with Tam Som such as Lao green papaya salad (Tam Mak Hoong ຕໍາໝາກຫຸ່ງ) and rice vermicelli salad (Tam Khao Poon ຕຳເຂົ້າປຸ້ນ).

It was a simple but delicious snack to share with family and neighbors with crispy pork rinds and cabbage on the side. This should last us until dinner time.
