What To Eat in Laos: Luang Prabang Pork Sausages
September 3, 2012 § 1 Comment
I have a thing about sausages. It is my comfort food. Growing up, my brother and I would make hotdogs with caramelized onion rings cooked in ketchup. It was my brother’s idea, I think. We grew up on that and once in a while, I’d still make these for old time’s sake. But I’ve come a long way with my sausages. I’ve soon learned to love all kinds of sausages from chorizo to kielbasa to our local longganisa.

So when I saw sausages drying on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang, I knew I had to get my hands on some of those and ordered the first sausage I spotted on the menu. Luang Prabang has exceptionally good sausages. Sweet and herby with a hint of heat from the chili peppers. The lemongrass and the juice from Kaffir lime delivered a flavor that is so distinctly indochina.
That and sticky red rice, add the casual, cozy open-air ambience of Mango Tree and it was pure bliss.Mango Tree Ban Vat Nong, Sakkarine Road, Luang Prabang, Laos +856 71 253-888 / 253-750
