The Adventurous Lao Gourmet (420,000 kip for 2 people) is a degustation-style menu that covers exotic tastes and textures not found in many local restaurants. The drinks menu covers a range of refreshing fruit juices, herbal drinks, fruit teas, custom-made liquors, and Beerlao.

For those who’d like to go more deeply into Lao cuisine, explore Lao cooking through Tamarind’s onsite cooking school. Classes begin with a guided morning tour of a food market, where you will learn about the key ingredients used in Lao food and how they are used. 

Back at the school, a local teacher will guide you through the process of preparing 6 different dishes. You can then enjoy your meals at an open-air pavilion with views over the Nam Khan River. A cookbook will also be given so that you can recreate traditional Lao cuisince back home.
