Right next to that bamboo bridge that connected Luang Prabang town to the other side of the river was a restaurant called Dyen Sabai. The set up of the place really attracted our attention, especially the trees they kept in their compound.
There were also huts made from bamboo, where should we have taken one, would have functioned like a private room.
Service was friendly with near-fluent English. Well, we understood them perfectly fine, anyway. We started with appetizers with the option of Platter 2. It consisted of sweet chilli sauce, Mekong seaweed, dry pork with sesame, Luang Prabang sausage and eggplant dip served with sticky rice.
We loved it! I especially liked the seaweed. I liked it so much that I bought a huge packet at the market to bring home.
We tried their fried eggplant with pork and found that their cooking style was similar to ours. The biggest difference would be that it was not as sour, as they used less vinegar.
We wanted to try a fish dish and opted for the lemon fish served with sweet chilli sauce. Simple tastes and not overly oily.
Thanks to the sticky rice they served, we were quite full from the meal. Oh, and because we were there during lunch, we took advantage of their 2 for 1 cocktail promotion (noon to 7:00pm).
