Le Mu – An Introduction

“Le Mu” -> “The Pig”

Le – The French word for the article “the”

Mu – The Laotian word for “pig”

“Mu” is particularly special because it was Chef Sav’s epithet growing up; his family lovingly referred to him as “little pig”. While the name “pig” may sound insulting or harsh to an American ear, in Laotian culture it is held as a term of endearment.
