Sticky Rice, a new restaurant promising traditional Laotian cuisine, will open its doors in Orlando this November.

Seated in the space formerly occupied by Pho 407 (1915 E. Colonial Drive), Sticky Rice is the brainchild of Marshall Phanthachit, the owner and head chef of Soupa Saiyan in southeast Orlando.

"Many people are either unfamiliar with Laos food, or confuse it with Thai or Vietnamese cuisine," says Phanthachit. "Opening up Sticky Rice is a catalyst to help put Lao food on the map, while also distinguishing it as its own."

Lao food consists of a number of signature dishes, but foremost among them is sticky rice, traditionally served at every Laotian meal. Visitors to Sticky Rice can also expect papaya salad, beef laab salad, and Lao chicken wings, among other menu items.

Meals will be served tapas-style, with small plates under $10.
