I could eat a big bowl of kao piek sen right about NOW. I was browsing food photos on my iPhone and came across this delicious photo which I took during my vacation in Laos last year.
My aunt in Vientiane, Laos makes and sells some of the best kao piek sen anywhere (biased? Ha). I think it’s the fact that she takes the time to prepare and deep fry the pork that makes her dish stand out. I like the pork and chicken combo of kao piek sen the best.
I look forward to reuniting with friends and family back home, and eating copious amounts of the total comfort food kao piek sen, in less than two weeks!
