Lao Viet Breakfast - Savannakhet Laos

At first sight this Big Breakfast must surely came from the French, one of the former colonial masters of Laos. The baguette is the French giveaway. Even though this dish is rarely found in Vietnam but the components are pretty common in both countries. What an excellent fusion of neighbourly cuisine? This must be the cousin's cuisine. Laos may be closer linguistically and culturally with Thailand but politically it is a different story. Vietnam and Laos both fought the French and later the U.S. And today Laos system of government is similar to that of Vietnam.

This is really a humongous breakfast and very Asian and very tasty too. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it. The meat (both pork and beef) served were generous, and stirred fried with spring onions. In additional there was a dollop of minced pork ball. To round up there were two sunny side up eggs and a good size baguette. Breakfast made in heaven?
