Despite its humble appearances, this small thatched hut eatery just opposite the palatial neoclassical Bank of Laos and a few steps down the small side street serves up the best food in Oudomxay. Mrs. Souphailin specializes in authentic northern Lao food and it's well worth it to come in early to preorder dishes #1 to #15 on the menu, which are all local specialties that need several hours of prep time. Try the delicious mok het khao, white mushrooms cooked in a
banana leaf, or the kaeng naw som sai sin gai, bamboo soup with chicken. Truly authentic!
