There's some Laotian food for ya

-Laotian food is usually eaten with the hands. It isn't eaten at the regular dinner table, but on a very VERY low table so the person can sit on the floor and eat at the same time. The food is generally spicy, and very healthy. One of my favorite dishes is Thom-mak-houng. It is papaya before it turns ripe in some seasonings like fish sauce, lime, chili peppers, others. If you want the ingredients, just ask. It is VERY good!
