Laotian Banquet in San Francisco - a great way to experience a traditional Lao feast.
I came across this article about an upcoming first annual Laotian banquet (September 12, 2009 @ 6 PM) by the Center for Lao Studies:
They haven't finalized the menu, but here's what they've listed so far:
Lemongrass-marinated grilled chicken
Naem khao: crispy rice lettuce wraps
Mok pa: steamed fish with dill wrapped in banana leaves
Laab salad with chicken and herbs; also known as Larb / Laap / Larp
Tam mak huung: shredded green papaya salad
Khoua mii: pan-fried noodles
Sai oua: Lao-style sausage
Sticky rice: Lao-style steamed rice
I believe it's $25/person to attend this banquet.
