Photo by Luiz Hara -

Saiphin Moore, head chef of the Rosa's Thai Cafe group, has opened a pop-up restaurant in Victoria, serving food from Laos, the Southeast Asian country that borders Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar (Burma) and China.  It's the only restaurant in London serving Laotian food, and is only open until the end of February.  Full review (& lots of pics) on The London Foodie's site here

"The food of Laos is varied and delicious, sharing many similarities with Thailand’s northern region of Issan (which has over the centuries been part of both Thailand and Laos), but it is also distinct for its own local produce and as a former French colony, for influences from French cuisine.
Taking up temporary residence in what will become the 7th Rosa's Thai Café, the pop-up will run until the end of February 2016, seating 25 people in a simply furnished but comfortable café.
The menu is designed for sharing, and features a total of 18 dishes from the land-locked country that once formed part of French Indochina. Nearly all the food is prepared on charcoal in the minute kitchen." (Text from
