Kung’s Cafe Lao

Finding this long-established eatery is a challenge but worth it.

Tucked at the end of a local dead end laneway and shrouded by a jungle of vines, cute, cheap and cheerful Kung’s Cafe serves up Lao soups, stir-fry and curries for only 15,000 to 20,000 kip a dish. The yellow, red and green curries are all tasty, as well as the stir-fried veg and meat (or tofu for vegetarians). While nothing ground breaking, they seem to put more love into their food compared to other restaurants. Kung’s Cafe is about a seven-minute bicycle ride from the town centre. Head out of the downtown core on Setthathirath, then at the King Sisavangvong monument turn right onto Simeuang. It’s down an alley across from the Ministry of Health. Look for the tiny green sign hanging on a building at the top of the lane.
