Thai Lu Restaurant
An old, friendly local woman welcomes tourists to the restaurant, and immediately presents them with a menu that is always interesting — imagine dishes named “laap,” “Sa Lo,” and “Lao Coffee.” The restaurant became famous to Muang Si tourists because of their delicious local dishes — warm noodles, meat drizzled with spices, fresh vegetables in savoury sauce — and warm Lao hospitality. If you want to try a certain Lao food, don’t hesitate to tell them — the local lady who manages the place is always happy to prepare them for you.
