Darleen Vanmanivong's story is compelling. But it's even more powerful when combined with a taste of her cooking, which you can get starting today at Crossroads Collective.
If you missed the opportunity to try SapSap's delicious Lao creations at their pop-up at the Crossroads Collective in March, there's good news on the horizon.
Following their highly anticipated pop-up at the East Side's Crossroads Collective, which wrapped up during the beginning of the Safter at Home mandate for COVID-19, SapSap has opened for curbside pick-up at their Racine commissary kitchen. Here's everything you need to know.
It takes guts, determination and passion to open a new restaurant during a global pandemic. But it takes a truly special touch - and an amazing menu of Thai and Lao street food - to sell out on the first day open.
Lao food is slowly but surely gaining recognition thanks to restaurants like Mekong Cafe and Vientiane Noodle Shop, along with young Lao entrepreneurs like Alex Hanesakda of SapSap and chefs like Darleen Vanmanivong who have dedicated their time and energy to bringing the bright, bold flavors of Laos to the fore.
Lao food from SapSap will be the showcase of an upcoming pop-up at the Crossroads Collective food hall.
