Restaurant Kitchen in Phongsaly
It was the food that concerns me here. Phongsaly had a style of restaurant I really enjoyed. Pick your protein and key vegetables from a refrigerator case and the chef, usually a woman, cooks them up for you as she desires.
We found pointing at what others were eating was a good technique for ordering and we did find that chicken, for example, was always prepared the same way.
Above is a kitchen from one of these restaurants. Once again I was amazed to see who well food can be prepared without all the conveniences of our Western modern kitchens.
