A popular hands-on feast food in both Vietnam and Laos, grilled pork meat balls come with platters of good things to stuff in a wrap: sour slices of starfruit, garlic, rice vermicelli, chilli cucumber, mounds of mint and other greens. Roll everything up in lettuce or rice paper, dip in the tangy sweet chilli peanut sauce and stuff it in your face. A set for two costs only 40,000 kip. The shop also specialises in fresh and fried spring rolls (starting at 10,000 kip) and Vietnamese-style hot pot with all the trimmings for 40,000 kip.

Your mouth watering yet? Viengsavanh is located on Hengboun Street across from Home Ideal department store. There’s a second, bigger location on Thadeua Rd, 2.5 kilometres from downtown, just after an old water tower, across from Lake View Restaurant and before Rashimi Hotel.
