Laos street food

It is raining outside, I’m curling up on my soft sofa and missing Laos so much. Setting your feet in a new land, cuisine plays an important role in developing tourism. And if you have visited Laos, you can completely agree with me that: “nothing is better than Laos street food”. You’re going to be such a softie when it comes to good food. Different variety kinds of food are sold in everywhere in Laos, from small corners to tourist destinations. Travelers can be able to fill their hunger by getting sticky rice or a bowl of Khausoy. If you are brave enough, some dishes that are processed from insects such as crickets, Belostomatidae, spiders, ants or even grubs is highly recommended for you.
