Nakhon Phanom, Thailand – Located in the Isan region of Northeastern Thailand, along the mighty Mekong River, Nakhon Phanom is one of the most laid back provinces in Thailand. Today we’re in Ban Na Thon Village (บ้านนาถ่อน) and the community has gather to cook local Thai Isan / Lao food, and we’re going to learn about their amazing culture.
Really quickly – Nakhon Phanom is located along the Mekong River and is part of the Isan region of Thailand. But that being said, it’s across the river from Laos, and the people of Isan share the same culture and food from Lao.
Ban Na Thon Village (บ้านนาถ่อน) is a fantastic village, so laid back, friendly, and with a variety of homestays. We had the pleasure of spending a number of nights in this village where we did a lot of cooking and eating local food, and we also did a number of activities to learn about the local culture.
For breakfast we had a number of pounded salads with long-beans, amazing grilled chicken, and sticky rice. For lunch, which was one of the biggest meals of the day, they made a huge amount of dishes – the highlights being the “bon kob,” a pounded frog chili dip and a buffalo skin chili dip. There was also an Isan food of raw pig’s blood coagulated into a jelly. I had eaten a couple times in Laos before. It was an amazing meal and great to eat with the community.
For dinner and final meal they Aunty’s made a beautiful bowl of laap, and Isan style mixed meat salad and herbs, this time made with fish. Again, it was fantastic to learn about the culture of the amazing people and their Isan / Lao culture.
