For a budget traveller like me, it has become a habit to check prices before I buy food or drinks anywhere I go. Now that I became a blogger, I also make it to a point to document some of them so you’ll have an idea on what to look for when it comes to cheap meals.
Here are some of the cheapest yet tastiest meals (and drinks) I’ve found in Luang Prabang.
Vegetarian Buffet In Luang Prabang Night Market for 10,000 Kip
Baguette Sandwich near Ancient LP Bakery for 10,000 Kip
Tip: Almost every variety is 10,000 Kip, order the chicken/bacon, cheese and vegetable to get more value for your dollar. You can also buy just the baguette for only 2500 Kip a piece.
Fruit Shake near the Ancient LP Bakery for 5000 Kip
Kao Piak (Noodles) for 8000 Kip and Crepe for 10000 Kip
These are just some of the meals available for not more than $1.50 per serving. There’s a lot more choices available in the market. Alternatively, if cheap food doesn’t ignite your appetite, there’s quite a number of nice restaurants in Luang Prabang (some are even acclaimed by culinary experts around the world) that you can go to.
