Lao Food Movement Takes on DC


I have had such an extraordinary journey these last four years. It’s been extremely tough yet, provided me some of the happiest moments ever.  But I could have not done it alone. I am blessed with family and friends who believe in my visions and missions. Creating Chef Seng to promote the cuisine of Laos, and launching the Lao Food Movement, was quite nerve racking task for me, but with the encouragement of friends, it began! And it is working! 

Four years later, I am eager to do more to continue promoting Laos and it’s cuisine. I can’t stop doing what I love, so with the help of my good friends of Norasack Design we created Khin Khao, which means, “eat rice”, for my next project. Unfortunately, it was taken 5 months later. 3 months ago we decided to choose another name, but we plans came to a halt because of complications.  Today I am so excited to announce that another dream and vision of mine has become a reality. Thank you to my friends, family and staff for all your support in this journey. I am proud to say that Thip Khao, a Laotian restaurant will be coming to the nation’s capital of DC this fall.
