ラオスむしゃむしゃ


先月行ったラオスのことを思う。
鼻が何かをかいだ感覚、

口が何かをほおばった感覚、

舌が何かを味わった感覚、

それらが今迄見た事ない風景・特別な環境で体験したこと。

つまりまず最初に思うことは食についてという、脳からすでに食いしんぼう。

ラオスに入ってまず洗礼をうけた、野菜がとにかくたくさんで新鮮でおいしいこと。

フー(フォーのラオス版)を頼むと、麺の入ったどんぶりとは別に一皿、長いインゲンをカットしたもの、パクチー、ミント、ライムも山盛りで。
それらを山盛りフーの上に載せて、ライムもじゃんじゃんしぼって食べる。
麺より野菜が多いんじゃないか。けしてビタミン不足にはならないだろうね、ラオスの食生活。

あとラオスのご飯の付け合わせで出てきた、茄子のペースト。
市場でもたくさん売っていた、白やきれいな紫色の丸い茄子。
茄子の甘みに焼いて燻された風味が加わって、ご飯がとまらずついにおかわりした程。

そして、一日歩いて山岳の小さな村へ立ち寄った時に村の人がおやつで出してくれた、とうもろこしのゆでたやつ。
ただ塩水でゆでただけ、実も人工的に甘く大きく加工されてない素朴な味のとうもろこし。
電気もないこの村の人がくれた「自然そのまま」のおもてなしがおいしかったな。

そうそう、この村ではトイレも「自然のままで」だったっけな。

I'm thinking about Laos where I went to last month.

The sensation when my nose felt something smell there,

The sensation when my mouth ate something foods there,

The sensation when my tongue felt about something foods there,

They was experienced at so exciting place!

After all, I'm always thinking about eating at first... I'm greedy from head to foot!

At first, I felt that Vegetables in Laos are very fresh and good, When I went to Laos. They are always serve on my dishes.

When I ordered Lao style Pho noodle, I was served noodles in a bowl, and with heaping vegetables on a plate. They are the cutting long kidney beans, the coriander, the mint, and the lime, all heaping!

I rode them plenty and ate the noodle with them. Sometimes I squeezed the limes and potted them the noodle a lot.

Maybe the quantity of the vegetables was too much better than the quantity of the noodle. it seems to people never become vitamin deficiency. Maybe.

Even more...
The paste of grilled eggplants, - I ate them at Tamarind Cafe in Luang Prabang.
The eggplants of Laos are round and colorful as so as i saw.
The smoking sweet taste was so good and I had a second helping of rice.

And the corns what was boiled by small village's people on teatime, - It was quite simply taste, however I felt that it was impressive for me.
- It was their hospitality with "naturally".

I remember. Their toilet was also their hospitality with "naturally".
