Lap is great with some sticky rice (Khao Neow).

I live in Issan and I really do not like the cuisine. I can't think of one thing I like. We have an Issan restaraunt near my house and my father in law loves it, but I can't eat one thing on the menu. Sorry, I'm not much help on this one.
You must have to brown bag it when you go to the village then. LOL Try some of that dried/BBQ buffalo ear with your beer sometime. Not bad, just a little chewy.

Have to admit the northeast has some of the worst and most expensive food in Thailand. They can,t even make basic fried rice very well.

Well fortunately the village has Thai restaraunt I like - it serves plenty of Issan food mind you, but Thai as well. But we have one here in Muk that only serves Issan cuisine - for me a big no-go.
Loner - I can't compare it to Northern Thailand or Southern Thailand, but I have no problem with Thai food in Issan. Hell I practically live on it.
100% of my diet is Thai food . Have yet to eat a single hamburger or anything foreign since living here. I find that certain cities have better food than others. Have lost count how many different restaurants i have eaten at while in Thailand. At least 500. Same goes for hotels i have stayed at. Overall there are very few things i won,t eat here. Not really into bugs but have tried them. But honestly can,t think of any great places i have eaten in Issan.

"Not really into bugs but have tried them."
My daughter loves to relish these in front of me - just to screw with me. "Oh Papa, yummy".
"But honestly can,t think of any great places i have eaten in Issan."
There's plenty of good places to eat out here. You ain't been around enough to make a statement like that. There's no region in the world as big as Issan that has no great places to eat.You gotta get out more hombre.
