the highlight of this chiang mai trip (who am i kidding, of all trips i ever take) has got to be all the delicious food that was devoured. chiang mai is home to many flavor-ful dishes that often times bring tears to your eyes with its spicy level such as khao soi (burmese influenced coconut curry noodle), sai ua (northern sausage), nam prik noom (green chilli paste), kaeb moo (deep fried pork rind), just to name a few.
here i’ve pinned down some of most famous local eateries around chiang mai where you can dine like a local instead of following the flock of tourists. prepare to salivate!
probably our favorite one of all.
khao soi samer jai
nhong kao lum
lovely traditional thai place!
they say these are carvings of a mushroom but i’m not so sure..
this life size cardboard cutout of the lady was everywhere in the restaurant..
okay, tbh this place was the least local of all. i mean, we were so confused they kept speaking chinese to us. but! the food was great.
hope they come in handy if you’re thinking of travelling to chiang mai someday!
