Laotian Spaghetti

The debatable common wisdom is that the concept of noodles originated in Asia, and was brought back to Italy by Marco Polo. In all my years of eating Asian noodles, I never had a moment when I thought that they were at all similar to the Italian variety. That was until yesterday, when I went down to a Hmong restaurant and had their Kaopoon Noodles. My first taste and my thought was that this was a Laotian version of Spaghetti Bolognese. And a very tasty version at that.


In this restaurant's version they claim the only ingredients in the sauce were coconut milk, chopped chicken, bamboo, basil, and red curry, served over rice noodles (the ones very similar to a thin spaghetti). Unfortunately I ate it in such a hurry I didn't think to take a photo.


The recipes I found on-line all seem much too complicated and use the very fine vermicelli. Here are a couple examples:

Khao Poon Nam Phik - Laos Vermicelli with Chilli Sauce - Wokme Asian Cooking Guide

Khmu khao poon | Food From Northern Laos


Since this restaurant (inside the Sun Foods Market) is in St Paul, Minnesota and it is the winter, the recipe may have been simplified out of necessity because of a lack of fresh ingredients. But I really liked it just as it was, not too spicy with a great flavor. I am going to try recreating it at home.

I don't recall ever eating that while in NE Thailand, but it looks good. I will have to look for it my next trip to St Paul. Central Minnesota has a huge population of Laotians. The 2010 census showed over 60,000 resident Hmongs alone, so there are a couple of huge markets catering to immigrants from that area. We travel down there about once a month to find the best food.

Kow Soi is a Northern Dish in Thailand and maybe northern laos.....never saw it in the NE of thailand.Orig came from Burma I think.

In Chiang Mai they also garnish the top of the curry with crispy noodles.

Khao Sawy is, I'm pretty sure, a Shan dish. You don't get it in Laos (unless there are Shan restaurants there now).

The Laos don't usually cook with coconut milk.

All I've ever seen of Hmong food is boiled pork fat with sticky rice and a bottle of rice wine.

  • Northern Thai khao soi is closer to the present day Burmese on ne khauk swe, being a soup-like dish made with deep-fried crispy egg noodles, pickled cabbage, shallots, lime, ground chillies fried in oil, and meat in a curry-like sauce containing coconut milk. The curry is somewhat similar to that of yellow or massaman curry but of a thinner consistency. It is popular as a street dish eaten by Thai people in northern Thailand, though not frequently served in Thai restaurants abroad.
    There is some reason to believe that the Thai version of Khao Soi was influenced by Chinese Muslim cuisine and was therefore likely served with chicken or beef.[2]
This was the first Thai dish that I really fell in love with. There used to be a little northern thai restaurant in Suk Soi 22. I assume its no more.
Ate there at least once a week. Northern sausage and khao soi.
