Fodor's Review

The set menu is the way to go at this noted restaurant, cooking school, and (just for good measure) book exchange. Doing so allows you to sample a cross-section of dishes made in the country's various cooking styles. Alternatively, you can order à la carte from a lengthy menu that includes kaipan, a crispy dried Mekong River plant covered with sesame seeds (it's the local equivalent of chips and salsa), and a local favorite, orlam, an eggplant "casserole" that can be compared to an exotic gaeng kiew waan (Thai green curry). Lao and western options are available for breakfast.
