In Vientiane you can find the cuisine of many countries however, the restaurants serving international food are mainly for foreigners. The quality is high, but prices are also high.
In the evening many local food stalls open on Khoun Boulom Rd. In the morning food stalls at the Morning Market and near the bus terminal sell local food and cheap French bread and sandwiches.

Report: The prices in 2007 may have been increased by 20-50%
