Diabetics  ...to make it a little easier choosing your meal

* The Lao do not use much oil or sugar in their cooking so a lot of their food is diabetic friendly.

* The menu items that we recommend below are based on experience as a family member is Type 2 diabetic.
   However, please note that they are recommendations only, because what a diabetic person eats depends on so
   many different things.

Note: If you are diabetic and a vegetarian, make sure you check with the vegetarian section of the menu (yellow section) for the dishes that can be cooked with tofu. 

Here are a few of the dishes that are suitable for diabetics. Please check the blue section of the menu for a complete list of suggestions.

If you are eating family style (shared dishes) then you might like to mix with some of the other dishes
but only have a small amount of the dishes that are not so suitable for diabetics then
you can have a taste of a lot more of our flavours!

You might like to finish your meal with a plate of fresh tropical fruit
