Did you know “zaap” in Laotian means delicious? That seems the most fitting name for ZAAP Kitchen because all our dishes are not only beautiful, but mighty delicious. Not too many people know about the country of Laos, and one of its best kept secrets is the food and cuisine. We at ZAAP Kitchen would like to help put Laotian cuisine on the foodie map . Lao food is quickly becoming discovered as part of the urban mainstream.The first thing to know about Lao food is that sticky rice is the national staple of Laos. Laotian people eat sticky rice with basically every meal. Sticky rice, laab, papaya salad: this is Thai food, right? Not originally. These well-known Asian dishes that have traveled the globe to appear on Thai restaurant menus everywhere are actually Laotian in origin. You might not have known that, because compared to neighboring Thailand and Vietnam, Laos has a relatively low profile when it comes to cuisine. Once you start tasting the glory of Laotian food, you’ll never look back.
