Jaew Bong (Laotian chili paste) at That Luang Market in San Pablo

So I went to the Laotian market on 23rd Avenue in San Pablo called That Luang Kitchen and bought a traditional Laotian chili paste called Jaew Bong, but labelled as "That Luang Kitchen chili sauce".

It was very, very spicy and oh so delicious especially when eaten with Laotian rice. That was my first time buying Jaew Bong from that Laotian market. It was in one of the refigerators towards the back of the the refrigerated section. Their Jaew Bong tasted just like homemade Jaew Bong. Besides consisting primarily of roasted Laotian chilies and other common herbs, Jaew Bong has slices of pork skin in it for a nice and varied texture. Laotian chili sauces tend to on the spicy side.

For those of you who have always wanted to try Jaew Bong (a traditional sauce in Luang Prabang, Laos), then I highly recommend the one at That Luang Kitchen. It is slightly sweet an very spicy
