If you were here in Nong Khai, please do not miss this Namnueng shop, called Daeng Restaurant. This place serve the best Namnueng in town as you can see how pack the restaurant is. They open for lunch and dinner. Namnueng is a Vietnamese fried sausage, it also comes in boiled version. The way to eat is by rolling the slices of sausage in the wetted rice roll, added some fresh leave vegetables and condiments. Then dipped into some kind of peanut sauce. The beginning of mastering the rolling art may be a little hard, but once you get used to it, you will know how much amount of filling you need to put in most without breaking the thin rice roll.

Fortunately here in Nong Khai, we have a friend who own a hotel in the best location and they let us stay for free. Although it is more like a guesthouse but the people are very friendly and helpful, the room is also clean. Inside the resort, they also have a Shabu shabu restaurant. They serve the super fresh meat, very tender and juicy while cooked in the tasty broth and nice compliment from the dipping sauces. The sitting was facing the mighty Mekong river and at night with all the lighting was so romantic.
For breakfast in the morning, they specially brought us some local delicacies to nibble from market near by. And in the house itself they provide a few choices of breakfast such as: Pork or chicken or prawn rice porridge, Vietnamese style bread roll served with sweet or savory filling. They are all delicious. I am very grateful and thankful for their kind hospitality and free food as well.
