Khop Chai Deu in Vientiane Laos BeerLao towers good local Lao food

Khop Chai Deu is still going strong


This fork returned to Khop Chai Deu in Vientiane expecting an overpriced backpacker experienced.

Instead we drank a three-litre tower of Beer Lao with Keith Richard’s stunt double, snacked for four hours and paid 160,000 kip (US$21) for the lot.

The view of Nam Phu Fountain is now blocked by gaudy new development.

But the great French built industrial-style electrical sub-station remains with all its dodgy looking tentacles in tack.

I remember going to Khop Chai Deu just after it opened and this year the restaurant celebrates its 15th anniversary.

It was fun and unpretentious. I found little had changed.

I went back again two days later for another Beer Lao knockout tower, snacks, ibid. It was all pretty good – especially local dishes.

Beer Lao tower of power. Ouch.

Local Lao food washed down with ice-cold draught beer were the best choices, sandwiches were tasty.

The final order, pizza (made with perfectly shaped packaged dough), was a mistake. Any experienced forker should know better.

Blame it on the Beer Lao tower of power.
