Spicy Lao is a Laotian restaurant in Garden Grove. Try the sai kok, a homemade sausage of pork stuffed inside natural casing along with lemongrass, dried chile flakes and kaffir lime leaves. It’s roasted over flames to char the skin to crispness, then sliced into bevels and served with a sweet tomato salsa it doesn’t actually need. But since it’s so packed with flavor, you’ll want rice -- either jasmine or, better yet, the sticky rice that’s as much the staple of the Laotian diet as baguettes are to the French.
