Greenville Avenue’s own slice of Laos is a good place for newcomers to the cuisine to try Laotian food for the first time. Grab a combo of meat, papaya salad and sticky rice and snack on fried pork riblets, dusted in golden fried garlic, as an appetizer. Nam khao, crispy rice mixed up with jerky and herbs, is another favorite dish here. Other members of the same family own takeout joint Sabaidee on Lemmon Avenue and two restaurants, Sweet Rice and Sticky Rice, in the northern suburbs.
