"BAW PHET, BAW SAAP!"
(if it's not spicy, it's not good!)
When our parents came to America as Lao refugees in 1980, their hope is what fueled their ability to navigate such an unfamiliar place. The hope that their children would grow up with a better life filled with endless opportunities. Even though there was a language barrier, it was clear to my parents that food was the foundation, an opportunity to communicate. With Lao Lao Food Truck, they have a chance to say something about where they come from and what they love about the flavors in their kitchen.
