Experience the region’s culture and nature on your taste buds. Feed the adventurous spirit and explore the exquisite flavors of traditional Lao cooking, or satisfy your palate in the comfort of your international favorites. At Nam Kat Yorla Pa, the majority of the ingredients are sourced locally, including some singing-fresh herbs and vegetables from the sanctuary’s organic garden, harvested for the table.
Your introductory journey into the Lao cuisine starts with its base flavors: Umami, created by Padaek, a strong fermented fish sauce; Smoked, as almost everything is grilled on charcoal; and Vibrant, animated by an assortment of chilies and herbs such as lemongrass, mint and more. Then, you have the staple of any quintessential Lao meal: Laab, a richly spiced meat salad with fresh herbs, served with sticky rice. Let the sanctuary’s kitchen take you even further as it pays homage to the country’s rich culinary heritage.
