Evan after 6 months, the Lao culinary delights never cease to amaze me.
On Saturday I went to have lunch at my friend Noi’s house. She is the secretary at the English School I teach at.
We had duck laap, which was delicious, and duck foot soup:
I did eat a bit of this soup – mostly just the broth and the vegetables. I didn’t gnaw on the feet at all.
And then, they brought out this:
A plate of Duck’s blood.
With some herbs and peanuts sprinkled on top.
I have to admit, even having this dish on the table, made me completely lose my appetite.
Anyway, it was an enjoyable party, but since I am getting ready to go to Australia for Christmas, I couldn’t stay long, since I had a million things to do.
Speaking of which, I must be off to do some of those million things i didn’t finish yesterday.
