Noodles are a staple in Laos. I lived off this noodle soup (Khao Piak Sen) in the few days that I biked through the country. It’s available nearly everywhere and if you ever been to Vietnam, this is very similar to the more popular Pho. Usually comes chicken or beef as the protein and plates of beans sprouts, long beans and cilantro as garnish. A bowl of this costs around 8000 – 10,000 Kip (about RM4-5).

A warm bowl of this comfort after a long day of cycling…
