LP, on the other hand, is at. culinary crossroads. The French, whom are still abundant here, left a good impression in the kitchen. We have spent whole days hopping from one restaurant to another dining on everything available including peanut butter and fruit crepes and cocktails mixed with the famous Lao rice whiskey. We have found Indian food, Thai cuisine, Malaysian treats, French wine, and traditional Lao eats like water buffalo soup. If all else fails, there is Italian pastas and pizzas. Our tummies are in heaven.
