Eat and meet
AttapeuAttapeu is certainly not a major culinary centre, but there are two simple rules to eating well here every-night -- avoid the restaurant at the Attapeu Palace like the plague and take most of your meals at Ban Laek Tee Neung. The noodles here are great for lunch, and the dinner menu includes a delicious Korean-style BBQ, sukiyaki, and an absolutely scrumptious Laos version of Thai laab called koi, which comes in beef, pork and chicken variations -- highly recommended. This is where locals who can afford to eat out routinely head, especially the folks that work at the Attapeu Palace! Thi Thi, the Vietnamese restaurant near Thanh Nga Guest House, serves a good variety of belly-filling, traditional Vietnamese dishes at fare prices and is well worth a try. There are several Lao restaurants along the river with pleasant river-side seating, and another Vietnamese-run place that specialises in barbecued goat meat for 20,000 kip per plate -- also recommended if you're looking to explore your inner carnivore -- if you order an entire goatyou get to drink the blood for free (somewhat forlorn-looking live goats are leased out front awaiting your order). It's tasty. Along the same road as the Aloonsotsai Guest House you'll find Yuko restaurant, offering standard local dishes, and a smattering of similar places in the same area.
