Dan Nao Muang Xam Restaurant

Laotian in Sam Neua

This hole-in-the-wall spot is hardly brimming with atmosphere, but it has the most foreigner-friendly menu in town in concise English. Breakfast includes cornflakes and a delicious fĕr. Dinner includes some excellent rice and soup combinations, plus a steak with al dente vegetables arranged star-like around the plate. It also serves decent portions of láhp, fried-rice variations and omelettes.

Some low-quality motorbikes are available for 100,000K per day.
