Nestled in the heart of the former French colony of Laos, Luang Prabang has its own blend of culinary traditions featuring everything from Southeast Asian-French fusion to more exotic local dishes.
Set at the intersection of two rivers, full of beautiful Wats (temples) and surrounded by both natural and man-made beauty, Luang Prabang’s one of Southeast Asia’s culinary centers. The historical capital of Laos would be well worth visiting even if it weren’t for the many exquisite restaurants which await you there. Featuring traditional Laotian, South East Asian and French fare, the city boasts many of the top places to eat in the region. Here are some of the best places to eat in Luang Prabang.
Ock Pop Tock – Silk Road Cafe
From the dining terrace which floats about the Mekong, you can enjoy a casual dining experience suitable for the whole family. Famous dishes include their chicken stuffed with lemongrass, and goy gai, chicken salad infused with herbs, chillies and lime. If you’re feeling brave, try the tea made from Silkworm droppings! After dinner wander the Ock Pop Tock gardens, which are filled with traditional art works made by Laotion artisans.
