Lao or Laotian Food is often overshadowed by the more touristy big sister Thailand, but much of the Northern region of thailand and Isan has so much food influence from Laos.
As we have never really showcases Lao food on our channel, today we headed out to Fairfield, about 45 minutes drive west of the Sydney CBD to stop by one of our favourite place to try Laotian food “Lao Village”.
It was definitely in our Sydney Cheap eats radar, however due to recent global events, their supplier have increased their prices and such they had to increase their menu prices. However as Helmi mentioned in the video it was definitely something worth checking out, to get a rather delicious introduction to the type of dish laos has to offer without traveling for now.
