Travel from Siem Reap or Bangkok one hour by plane to Laos and you’ll find a cuisine that is Lao. I have mixed feelings about Laotian cuisine, it is not that different from its neighbours, yet it has its own flair. The green papaya salad a common denominator throughout South Eastern Asia, fish sauce, onion, tomato and lime, a refreshing combination.
The green papaya contains two of the most powerful plant enzymes. These enzymes excel at breaking down proteins, fats and carbs, as well as aiding healthy digestion but be careful where you eat, as raw fruits can cause hepatitis – I like her mortar action better than her spoon into her mouth action.
