These Som Moo (Sour Pork Nam) are a classic Lao snack. They tell the creative story of Lao cuisine. For years, preserving sour pork was a way to survive. What resulted was a magical snack packed with bold Lao flavor.
Som Moo (Pork nam) feature savory ground pork, traditional Lao spices, and delicate pork skin. The pork skin transforms the texture of these sticks, making them hard to resist snacking on. Great for snacking by itself, at gatherings, with a cold one 🍻, or as a side appetizer with your favorite “thum” papaya salad.
A very popular dish that’s these snacks are use in would be our famous “Nam Khao” deep fried crispy rice ball, broken down and mixed with these “Som moo” and fresh herbs.
