Lao Lanexang Market

More likely romanized as Jaew Bong, a Laotian sweet-hot sauce.

I happened upon this market filled with a nice, neat array of Asian pantry items, largely Southeast Asian as the name implies. They also offer a selection of house-prepared ready-to-eat items, so I left with this house-made Jaew Gong hot sauce. A general condiment, it is typically made with dried water buffalo skin, but as you’ll see on the label this one seems to “have cow skin. Close enough.”
