Tasting Hungarian food, wines and pálinka at the Mekong river? It is more than possible – if you visit the Laotian capital, Vientián, we think it’s a must.
Hungarians can be found everywhere in the world, they say. And we suppose that it must be the case with Hungarian restaurants, as well – we just read about a place called Budapest Bistro, which can be found in Vientián, the capital of Laos.
The city is not a busy metropolis but it is becoming more and more popular among tourists. It is undergoing dynamic changes, for example new shopping malls and restaurants are built and opened. One of the latest spots (and the one only Eastern-European restaurant of the area) is Budapest Bistro, where retro elements merge with modern design and mouth-watering Hungarian tastes.
If you visit Laos and more precisely Vientián, don’t miss this place, because it can be your only chance to taste goulash soup, Wiener Snitzel, chicken paprikash, pleated potatoes, Gundel pancakes or a nice cold apple soup.
In addition to the well-known Hungarian dishes, they also have Hungarian wines and Hungarian Spirit, (“pálinka”). These drinks are also gaining popularity in Laos. The most prestigious product on offer is the gold-medal-winning bio wild pear of the Prekop pálinka factory, working under the aegis of the Liquor Factory of Miskolc.
