Roast Chicken Salad – Veena Cafe, Vientiane, Laos

This one is coming from Vientiane, which is the capital of Laos, and also what I affectionately refer to as the Western food capital of SE Asia.  The strong French influences have a lot to do with that.  Veena Cafe is one of my all-time favourite places to dine. It has a lot of Western-style food alongside some Asian dishes, something for everyone. Like my favourite Luang Prabang restaurant, Puck Luck, you could pretty much throw a dart at the menu and always end up with something good.

This roast chicken salad has a very generous portion of chicken and the greens are really high quality. I order it on its own as my dinner and am plenty full after.  It is a steal at only 45,000 kip. I can’t imagine what it would cost in Canada but likely $15 to $20 which is over 5 times more expensive.



Probably my number one order from Veena is the morning steak.  Not quite as good a deal at 59,000 kip but look at all this goodness.


Cost of Roast Chicken Salad – 45,000 lip  (well under $3 CAD)
