Posted Date: 11/15/20137:42 AM


Phoukhong Restaurant
Meals US$1-3 – Open: Breakfast, lunch, dinner
This restaurant next to Pon’s has s a virtually identical menu of cheap and tasty local dishes, with an emphasis on fresh river fish. The riverside setting is popular.

Don Khong Guest House & Resaunnt
Meals US$1.50 -3 – Open: Breakfast, lunch & dinner
In appealing position by the river, this place serves tasty Lao dishes such as laap (US$1.50), the mysterious ‘soup with chicken gallingly root’ (US$1.50), and various rice dishes.

Pon’s
Meals US$1.50-3.50 – Open: Breakfast, luch & dinner.
Pon’s fresh river fish are worth a shot; the steamed fish in banana leaf is particularly good. A large menu that includes reasonable Lao, Thai and backpacker food, an attractive riverfront setting (and the nearby guest- houses) make this a travelers’  favorite.

Souksan Restaurant
Meals US$2-5 – Open: 7am-10pm
ln a building overhanging the river, Souksan serves a range of Chinese, Lao, Thai and comfort food including (allegedly) a Sunday roast lunch (US$5).

Village Muong Khong Hotel
Meals US$2-6 Open: Breakfast, lunch, dinner.
This airy restaurant has an intimate ambience and the Lao and Western dishes are among the best on the island. Worth the walk.

Auberge Sala Don Khong
Meals US$2.50-7 – Open: Lunch & dinner
The Lao and European fare here is enjoyable and the setting romantic by Don Khong standards; the speciality is mok paa (fish steamed with herbs in banana leaves, US$3.50) and it’s worth trying. Non-guests should give an hour’s notice.
