hi kirk,
holy sht - fish poo. and pond scum.

you are truly an adventurous eater.

loved the photos of the dishes - what a great variety!

Ginger

I was there in November 2008, but my food didn't look as good as yours, can't wait to see the second part. :)

sawyer

wow, you ate poo. (haha) would you eat it again?
looking forward to part 2.

kat

whoa...interesting menu there, can't wait to hear about part 2.

ed (from Yuma)

Amazing stuff. I love your foreign posts, and people who think I'll eat anything just haven't met you. Thanks!

Michelle

Hi Kirk,

Did you mean they scraped the intestinal matter out and used the fish gut to create the dish? This is interesting dish, I heard of preserved fish gut before, but not fish poo.

Kirk

Hi CC - he-he-he....It's always been an objective to see what the "real folks" eat, and I guess this time we got it in spades.

Hi Ginger - Welcome, and thanks for taking the time out to comment. Funny, many of the dishes coming out of the kitchen looked like stuff we made in class.

Hi Sawyer - Sure I'd eat it again....funny thing though, if that ended up on my plate here in the states, I really wouldn't know how to react.

Hi Kat - Yes, definitely not your everyday meal.

Hi Ed - There's still stuff I won't eat.....

Hi Michelle - I believe they scrape the intestinal matter out of the gut, and probably mixed it with something to help preserve the fish. It covers the entire fish.

Sandy

"okay, Joy says you'll eat anything....."

Reminds me of the old cereal commercial "Give it to Mikey! He'll eat anything."

It's a good thing Joy could vouch for you. I'll bet the restaurant has had some bad experiences in the past with (foreign?) diners who wouldn't touch these dishes.

Carol

Everything looks great, but I think I'd pass on the fish poo.

Little Miss Contrary

That's an interesting Laotian tasting menu, if I ever see one!

janfrederick

Spirogyra? Wow, you just took me waaaaaay back to freshman biology!

Mscinda

Wow, another great post. Love the pictures. Makes me miss my mom's cooking so much. Thanks for sharing.

Kirk

Hi Sandy - Yes, that could be....In addition I think either Joy or Carolyn would have to be available for the dinner to present the dishes.

Hi Carol - LOL! So no fish poo for yooo? Sorry, I couldn't help it.

Hi LMCC - It get's even more interesting.....

Hi Jan - And you just took me back to "smooth jazz".... ;o)

Hi Mscinda - Wow, your Mom made stuff like this? I'm hoping you'll be able to post some recipes in the future!

Chris

Bravo!

too bad they didn't teach how to make those dishes in the cooking class.

nhbilly

LOL - me like a side of poo poo ;-)
That was interesting can't wait for part 2.

Kirk

Hi Chris - LOL! Can you imagine having guests over and making this???

Hi Billy - Nice to hear from you, I hope things are going well. So there would be "poo for yooo!"

foodhoe

what a fun interesting meal, sounds like a head to tail feast! I am still smiling about fish poo and pond scum - what a world...

the office goat

Headline should have read:
Hawaiian goes to Laos, orders Poo-Poo Platter.

Faine G

Looks at the same time bizarre and exceedingly tasty.

I maintain everything tastes better served on banana leaf.

Kirk

Hi FH - I agree what a delicious world!

Hi TOG - That's the best line I've heard or read all day!

Hi Faine - You have a valid point there.... fish poo on a banana leaf tastes better I'm sure!
