Lao Village Restaurant, Fairfield

This restaurant has been around for thirty long years and still going strong.
The place can get a little bit noisy though but I couldn't care less as the food is amazingly good.
Lao cuisine is not the same as Thai cuisine, as many may think. Although there are many influences coming from the neighbouring countries such as Thailand, Vietnam, China and even France. 
The staple food of Lao is the steamed sticky or glutinous rice (klao niaw) eaten at every meal.
Ideally, you roll them into small balls, dip into sauce and eat with your fingers.
We didn't order it this time because we wanted to give the Crunchy Fried Rice a go.
Nothing fancy about the dishes here but they look authentic and tasted simply delicious!
