I bet your dumps are toxic. Source: worked with a Vietnamese lady for 10 years. We'd drop a cone in the hall after she took a dump, to warn people away.

I'm in Laos, not Vietnam, so apparently prevents that problem from happening.

Ok, edited previous post because I fucked up the tags and made a whole picture/description disappear.
I think we need a separate Food Porn thread.
Fair enough.  If the mods want to break my posts off along with the others to a new food porn thread, that would be cool.  Guess it does get in the way of posting recipes.

That's a pretty amazing looking tour of food Teleku, thanks.

Since we are reviving this thread...

A Pepper Lunch opened up near here and I'd never tried it before. Was good, but decided I didn't want to pay them for what I could do at home.
Oh god, ate so much Pepper Lunch when I lived in Japan.  Happy to see it expanding as a chain, though I know it will always be a niche thing in America.  Because Americans are retards and there is no way they wont badly injure themselves and sue with that setup.

That's some amazing shit.

I was looking at the soup with the pig's blood and thinking, "That has blood in it, man" and then I read your description.

My brother spent some time in Laos and Northern Vietnam and he just loved Laos and really hated Northern Vietnam--foodwise, local community wise, etc. I found that really interesting--he thought they were worlds apart.
They are actually quite different.  Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, and Burma, while all sharing close borders, are pretty distinct.  They share some common religion, customs, and food in the same way that many European countries do.  But just like Europe, they all have ancient history, and are unique civilizations (at one point Laos was the most powerful nation in the region).  I think Lao are probably the nicest, most easy going people in South East Asia.  Mind you, most SE Asians are pretty chill, but all the other countries are pretty up tight about certain things.  In Laos, even if you deeply insult somebody, they'll mostly just understand you're a dumb foreigner and smile and still try to get along with you.  It's one of the least developed nations in SE Asia, but most people here don't act like it and always smile (such a wonderful change from Russia).  Meanwhile, everybody in Cambodia seems out to get you, the Thai's can get really angry if you fuck up certain things, and the Vietnamese can get really political about certain things.  I haven't been to Burma yet.

So anyways, here are a few other pictures I scrapped up glancing through my phone:

More Khao Soi in Chiang Mai!


Lao style Khao soi I had in Vientiane, with that fermented pork I mentioned in abundance.


Man, I totally forgot this, but this was the appetizer at that Tamarind restaurant in Luang Prabang.  Its fried bamboo chips.  I don't know how they do it, but its fucking great.  Its bamboo, but biting into it, it has the consistency of popcorn.  They treated it with lemongrass and we couldn't get enough.  I need to look into buying bamboo shoots to see if I can recreate it.


Now for some random funny things.

As I mentioned before, Larb (also spelled Larp, also spelled Laap.... English can't make the actual sound of the word) is a major Lao dish.  At a restaurant here owned by a Lao Canadian (who of course, is super over the top friendly), who created a Larb Pizza.  It was actually pretty good (I got half pepperoni in case it wasn't).  In other news, he has a 'Canadian Pizza' stacked with various meats/bacon, served with a bottle of maple syrup to pour on it before eating.  Amazingly, that was not bad either.


Fried cricket stand at a night market in Udon Thani.  You just walk up and point to what type of bug you want, they scoop them out and deep fry them for a minute, then hand it over.  I was too American to try it.   Sad Panda


I was walking around a mall in Bangkok, looking for lunch, and saw a Raman chain restaurant.  I was happy to see they specialized in Iekei Ramen (Yokohama style).  I first learned of this style when I went back to visit a friend in Yokohama two years ago, and holy god is it great.  The chain version wasn't near as good as the place we went to in Yokohama, but man, still tasty.  The world needs more Iekei style Ramen.


So I was walking through Vientianes only mall, and saw this chain restaurant that advertises their 'famous' Kone Pizza.  So of course, I had to test it.


And yes, sure enough, they take a dough ice cream cone, fill it with cheese, sauce, and all the other pizza stuff, and stick it in a rotating oven thing.  Not bad!  I mean, its Laos and a chain restaurant, so the ingrediants where obviously low grade.  But not the worst idea in the world.  This is the type of thing I would expect either hipsters or some massive pizza chain in the US to fix and perfect.  Actually, looking now, google shows me this is apparently a global chain.  WTF, I have never seen this before....

Oh, this kills me. I used to have a co-worker whose wife was from Laos, and we used to joke that I'd take over on alternate days as husband, since I could exist on a diet of sticky rice in a basket, larb, and a dish of jaew. You rotten fucker.  Heart

Cone pizza has been in america for a while. In fact, locally we've evolved from cone pizza to like fried chicken and shit in a cone. I don't know what to tell you. Apparently cones are easy to eat. I find them to be a pain in the fuckin ass.

I've had crickets and worms. They both suck.

Guess the trend somehow didn't make it to California, because Laos is literally the first place I've seen it (but again, google tells me its everywhere).  Just thought it was funny.

Yeah, pretty happy about this assignment.  And I deserve it after 2 years in Putinstan.  May be the place I finally grab a wife from.   awesome, for real

Come on out though!  Decent expat community here.  I'm sure you can find something to do.  Then you can sit and watch the Mekong as you gorge yourself on sticky rice and beer lao every day.

Can confirm I have never seen a cone pizza.

So does anyone else have an Instant Pot?  It's basically a fancy electronic standalone pressure cooker, but it's replaced my crock pot and my rice cooker too.  What a neat little kitchen toy - pot roast in 75 minutes and what-not.

Getting back on the quick but tasty recipes:

When I was in Montreal I used to go to a Korean place for lunch a lot.
I miss that dearly, but most of all their kimchi fried rice.

So every now and again I pick up some kimchi from the local asian store and make some myself using this recipe.
15 minutes and with whatever veggies I got home to stir fry the rice with and I'm in a happy place.

Ok, I need an idea for company potluck, and I've only got two days. My go to was always VDL's pulled pork recipe, but the boss is doing sloppy joe sliders, so that seems redundant.

Mac n cheese.
A bottle of wine.
Bean salad.
Pie.

What are your goals and constraints?  Are you trying to impress people, exert minimal effort, or both?  Are you able to heat/reheat it at the event?  Are you transporting it in a car or does it need to sit in a backpack for an hour without falling apart?  Are there any dietary or religious restrictions in play?

Yeah, basically, on a scale of 1-10, how much do you want to wow people, and what rough culinary space are we in here in terms of what wows people, also? If someone's bringing bbq or something similar, for example, a really awesome slightly unusual potato salad might be enough to wow people--something that goes into that space.

Don't get me wrong - Sometimes you feel like the recipe/erotica, sometimes just the pictures.
