In the hidden Kung’s Cafe

Technically, it’s a hidden gem, because you have to walk through this small alley to discover Kung’s Café, in one historic village of Vientiane, Simeuang. But Kung’s Café is for sure in the top list of the breafast and brunch in Vientiane, I am pretty sure you’ve heard about it !

I went there the first time 3 years ago and had a plate of mii lao: caramelized noodles topped with an omelet and onion leaves. It was good, however, I never went again. And recently (thank you social media), I just scrolled over some very appealing pictures. So I thought I should give another try. And I was right.

First, because of the venue itself: a lovely terrace with hanging garden, made of mark nam – a kind of squashh that were dried before to be hanged. Then, because of the Vietnamese music in the background, those you can hear in some tailor or Dongpalane’s shops, which make you feel in another time lapse. And then, because of how they carefully take care of you once your food is on the table. And finally, because of the food itself. Wow.

We shared a fried egg and xin mai pan, and, being a girl with half Lao taste, it was really good ! I always ate this separately, and I didn’t think the mix of both will taste that good.
And aside, we ordered a Sticky rice pancake filled with a slice of fresh mango, to coat with honey. Price are more than reasonable, less than 50,000LAK for two – including a coffee. Ordered e-xac-tly the same food two days in a row.

There are outside and inside seatings; I love both of them. We sat outside because of the sweet weather we have in Vientiane for the past few days (25° this morning), but the small room reminds me these photography of colonial era.
