Vangthong Market is usually packed with locals either here for an enjoyable evening, or picking up take-away food on their way home from work. As you pass by each stall, you’ll see vendors cooking up Lao cuisine such as bla kan sung (grilled fish), sai oua (Laotian sausage), and bet yang (roasted duck).

There’s limited seating on offer at the market, so barbecued and skewered meat, such as bing gai (grilled chicken) or bing moo (pork on skewers) are usually popular for takeaways. The best way to eat them is with khao niew (sticky rice). 

Even if you don’t eat it yourself, you will surely be impressed by how many different cuts of chicken can be worked on to skewers, from chicken feet, all the way up to the neck. A walk through the Vangthong Evening Food Market also provides plenty of good photo opportunities – just make sure you ask for permission before clicking that shutter.
