Visitors looking for a place to eat have plenty of options when it comes to Lao-style foods served at the Tamarind Cafe.

Those looking to taste the local flavors will be impressed by dishes at the café – locally found ingredients and dishes offer visitors a taste of authentic Lao cuisine. Dishes include Luang Prabang Parcels, which are wraps made up of vegetables, pastes, noodles and herbs. Soups, barbecue and stuffed lemongrass are also found on the menu.
