Luang Prabang is one of my favourite cities in Asia. I personally think that it’s one of the most beautiful city in Southeast Asia. It’s laidback, picturesque and affordable. I could easily picture myself spending months living while working online in this small city.
One of my favourite things to do when I was here was to visit the night market of Luang Prabang and eat a variety of sumptuous street foods.
Here are some of my favourites:
There’s a lot of choices when it comes to mix fruit shakes in Luang Prabang. My personal favourite is pineapple, banana and mango.
Banana Roti is one of my favourite snacks in Southeast Asia. But it’s not the only option available, you can also try roti with peanut butter, chocolate or just plain roti with sweet milk.
Of all the baguettes that I’ve tried in this trip, the ones in Luang Prabang are my favourite. Chicken, cheese and vegetable is my top pick. There’s a variety of options to choose from. Another popular choice among backpackers is bacon and cheese.
Sweet mini cakes are also available for those who loves them and as well as locally made pastries.
I’ve heard a lot of good things about Lao Coffee although I forgot to try it when I was in Luang Prabang. I always find myself buying fruit shakes whenever I go to the night market.
Though I’m not a big fan of balut (boiled duck egg with fertilized embryo or duck fetus), I do like boiled quailed eggs. It reminds me of “tukneneng” which is boiled quail eggs covered with an orange batter and deep fried which I often buy in the streets of Manila.
In case you visit Laos in the near future, don’t miss to try out the street foods in Luang Prabang night market.
