This place came highly recommended by my Year 12 students! When I talked about this place with my colleagues, they also boasted about their dishes including fried ice-cream! Before their recommendations, I have never thought much about Laos cuisine because I simply haven’t been exposed to it yet. I don’t think I ever heard anyone mention about Laos food since I was born! Hence, I had no idea what to expect.
As this place was literally a 10-15min drive from work, it was easy (actually not due to after-school traffic) to get here. Plenty of parking next to Fairfield station as this restaurant is literally located opposite the station. Hence, all the more reason to come here after school (seriously hate fighting for parking spots).
To this day, I’ve been to this place twice and haven’t been disappointed yet. This is one of the places in which as soon as the food arrived, I just had to dig right in. No time for photos because our stomachs have been waiting long enough!
There were plenty of food which I enjoyed including the fried ice-cream (pictured left). The BBQ beef salad was a crowd favourite as I love the spicy but tangy flavour it produced.
Lao pork sausages was definitely a crowd pleaser because the filling had something like rice in it? I don’t know but it tasted so good especially with their sweet chilli sauce.
Ox tongue was ordered quite a few times because why not lol.
TBH, I never had fried ice-cream in my life until I came here. I don’t know why but my mum would never let me order it and says that it’s not that good. I listened to her words for 20+ years and after having it here, I realised she was wrong. I love the thin fried skin which surrounds the ice-cream, and the pandan flavour was exquisite! I also tried it in salted caramel which wasn’t too bad as well.
They have a new flavour – thai milk tea – which we wanted to try but was too full. Next time!
