Kaeng Nor Mai (Lao Bamboo Shoot Soup) and Ping Kob (Grilled Frog) for lunch in Vientiane, Laos. Aunt Kian and Aunt Phone made the bamboo shoot soup and grilled frog to go with warm sticky rice and Jeow Mak Phet (Chili Pepper Dipping Sauce). I have never eaten bamboo shoot soup with grilled frog but my two aunts said the two dishes go together quite well. Who am I to argue with that and will have to give it a try in the future.

Ping Kop

The bamboo shoot soup was made the way I like it with no meat or fish but plenty of mushroom and vegetables.
