Chowdown report: Wat Lao Saysettha of Santa Rosa 12/8/12

Six hounds gathered, all veterans of previous chowdowns at the Wat Lao Sayettha budhist temple. The celebration this weekend was in honor of an old and revered temple in Laos, Pha That Luang.

My favorite dish was Kanom Kak, a coconut rice pancake, they were toasty on the outside and creamy on the inside. They made me think of a toasted coconut marshmallow.

The grilled Lao sausage was also particularly good on Saturday.

Khao Mun Kai - steamed chicken on rice may sound bland but not when they serve it with chicken skin, cucumber, herbs and a tasty (and HOT) sauce.

Dishes on the menu that have already been reviewed several times:
Khao Piak - rice noodle soup
Beef Laab
Papaya Salad
Fried Banana
Sticky rice with taro

And illustrating the influence of other cuisines on Lao food:
Wonton soup
Chicken Satay with peanut sauce

I think we all bought food to take home. It really is that good.

What did the rest of the group think?
