“Nori” in Luang Prabang

16 04 2016

We use the term “nori” for our (Japanese) dried seaweed that is commonly used in wrapping rolls of sushi or onigiri.

They have something similar called “kai phaen” in Luang Prabang, Laos though it is much more strongly seasoned which reminded me more of the Korean variety of nori.

I had to try it so had it for my second lunch after the noodles on the day I was leaving Luang Prabang.
