Food of Son La
The Son la province offers a wide variety of mouthwatering cuisines. Thit Trau Gac Bep (Dried Buffalo Meat served with sweet and spicy sauce and corn wine), Com Lam (rice cooked in bamboo tubes with salt and lemon), Ruou Can (Fermented rice wine with added herbs) are dishes that are authentic to the Son la area. One of the most picturesque and refreshing locations to eat at in Son La is the Bamboo Restaurant. Made entirely out of bamboo sticks and stone, the surrounding jungle offers an ethereal atmosphere to the restaurant. Son La has its own share of street food, centered on the park. Plates loaded with boiled or fried snails garnished with chilli sauce, mangoes and cucumbers is a common sight. There are also plenty of sugarcane stalls.
