  1. I’ve never had Lao food although I am immensely interested in visiting the region of Indochine, especially Luang Prabang and the Plain of Jars! From what I’ve read, Lao food sounds delicious (sadly there are no Lao restaurants here in Pittsburgh).

    Happy Birthday Chef Seng!

  3. Happy birthday Chef Seng! I love Lao food! How could I not? It’s the food of my people. I wish more people knew more about Lao food, but I think will change soon enough as more restaurant start to advertise Lao food for what it is-not Asian fusion etc. It’s time for Lao Food to come out of the shadow of its SEA neighbors and shine on its own spotlight!
