For a tasty meal in a prime spot along the Mekong, the Riverside Houayxai can't be bettered. The menu is enormous, featuring Thai and Lao dishes, along with Western breakfasts. In the evening, try the dath barbecue, or perhaps some steamed fish with lemon or curried crab. Popular with tour groups, the open-air eatery offers ample Mekong vistas and sits right above the boat landing to Thailand.
