Great lunch meet-up today at Vientiane for Laos/Thai food. I give the place 4 stars! Those stuffed chicken wings are to die for, the spicey green papaya salad is perfect, the lao sausage was sublime, the squid salad was one of the best I've ever had..and I loved the presentation of everything. Dave said the Beerlao was very good too.
We met Rodney of Sacramento Food Blog and then Jenny and Robert were there, plus Dave and I. I invited one lady who was dining alone to join us, and she declined...but she sure enjoyed Roberts story about Moose Turd Pie. Speaking of dessert, we had some lovely cold mango with warm rice and a tapioca drink with green jello (yes) that was so delicious. Souk divided one into 5 little cups for us!
The spicey cucumber dipping sauce..well, that was so delicious that I drank it. Souk, the owner, gave me some to take home with me.
It's the second time Dave and I have eaten there and Jenny says she and Phil get take-out way lots. I shall be a regular there. I like their new digs too!! Very nice. The service was prompt and friendly, the place is spotless...even the bathrooms, and I took a look in the kitchen when I was coming around the corner and it was spotless too! I think this is my very favorite place to dine in Sacramento...unless I am craving a burger or Mexican food...or Italian.
