Chokdee Cafe

Chokdee Cafe is Vientiane's only Belgian bar, and it proudly displays its heritage with abundant, yet tasteful, Belgian beer paraphernalia and Tin Tin imagery.

In addition to more than 40 Belgian beers, most with names we can’t pronounce, Chokdee Cafe serves up meat-centric Belgian fare of steaks, kebabs, sausages, stoofvlees (beef stew), burgers and the ever popular moules-frites, with imported New Zealand mussels (a big bowl for 130,000 kip). Portions are filling and the burgers (40,000 kip) and steaks (80,000 kip) are an excellent deal – yes they come with homemade Belgian-style frites that could be a meal by themselves.

As the Belgian beers are imported the prices are very dear, but of course BeerLao is still available. They also have Lao dishes but honestly, why go to a Belgian restaurant for Lao food?

With so many drab, lacklustre riverside restaurants, Chokdee Cafe stands out. Tables spill out on to the sidewalk and the brightly painted walls are adorned with Tintin figurines to make for a cozy, welcoming atmosphere. Staff and regular clientele are a friendly, chatty bunch, and the place is usually lively in the evenings.
