Its great to finally be able to find a recipe online. This is my favourite dish growing up as a kid but mum taught us to make the noodle with a bit of starch as well so we could get the chewy taste. I love visiting Laos and enjoying this meal!

thanks for posting it up!

I am a Canadian living in Savannakhet, and Khao Piak Moo Gop is my favorite dish for breakfast! Thanks for the blog. It's my goal to learn to cook for myself more. With your help, I won't ask for help as much as I do now! Haha!

I always have trouble making the noodles but you make it look so easy. I will have to try your method with the specified ratio of the flours and water. Thank you for your wonderful posts of traditional Lao foods.
