Xao Ban: Best yoghurts in town, now with it's own shop
Their products are selling quite good, but not always available - mainly because the supermarkets don't take care of the stock. So founder Nongnut decided to open her own shop. It is conveniently located next to the Vientiane International School and offers the whole range of fresh products from Xao Ban - and even more. I have't seen the Pumpkin Spread in the supermarket shelves yet, neither the passion fruit syrup. Fresh fruits and vegetables are also available, and around noon the delivery man bring fresh bread. Oh, and of course not to forget the different yoghurts and - my all time favorite - the sour cream.
Recommended is the Buffalo Mozarella, 50.000 KIP from a buffalo farm in Thailand. Soon coming is goat cheese and goat milk. For those looking for a healthy but light lunch Xao Ban offers a salad bar soon (some ready to eat salad are already available). During the soft opening customers may experience some minor problems, but that doesn't effect the range of products or the friendly service.
If you pass by you may get also a cup of coffee and a nice chat with the staff - just like in the small shops in the old days.
