Return to spicy food!

After arriving in Laos we had a great dinner.


Vietnamese was our least favorite food thus far, although almost everything was pretty good. Everything was very fresh in Vietnam, even to a fault. There seems to be a southwest-to-east gradient in southeast Asia; with the best and most spicy in Thailand and the mildest in Vietnam.

Other notes about the Vietnamese food:

Not enough ice in shakes;

Some Jasmine tea, and very good, but rare; nothing like the ubiquity of tea in Japan;

Our favorites involved fresh spring rolls with some cooked fish or tofu inside;

The coffee was both the best and on occasion, the worst so far, but usually fresh. Not nearly so much instant coffee;

Do as the Indian guys we met do-bring your own bag of spice!
