Ballotine of Pork and other Starters

Ballotine of Pork, is French in origin, and better known in Laos as “Yhor”. It can be enjoyed in Sandwiches, “Yum´s” or on its own.

Laocook Ballotine

Our version, made by Khamhoung uses Bacon Rind in place of boiled Pig Skin, which we think gives the “Yhor” a smokey flavour.

Laocook VS Chicken

“XO Sauce” plays a big influence on our “VS Chicken” dish. The sauce is made from Dried Shrimp, Jamón Pata Negra (1st Quality Iberian Ham), Chillies, Shallots, Garlic and a touch of Padek.

Briefly Blanched Asparagus adds a crunch to the dish. In our search for a name for the dish, the only name we could come up with was “Very Special Chicken”, hence the name “VS Chicken”!
