I should say that I’m not a huge fan of cafe when it comes to lunch time. I’d rather find those tiny stalls in the alley, or go to a local restaurant which is packed up with hungry people during lunch time. But this place got to be an exception, you’ll find out why!
So it was a sunny mid day in Chiang Mai when Fred, Susan, Adam, and I were going to a certain local eatery for lunch. We later found that the place was horrible. There were so many flies, or bees, we didn’t know for sure. But the point is, it looked super dirty and we knew we got to move to another place right away. This Nat Wat thing, was Susan’s idea. (Thanks to you, Susan!!!).
Do you believe in love at the first bite? I think you should, as it does exist.
We went here last December, just a couple of days before we left Chiang Mai. And we clearly understand what the fuss is all about.
Before we got to Chiang Mai, I did a little research about where to have nice desserts there (because, I just had to!). This place came up a couple of times and I read a lot of good reviews about it on TripAdvisor, Foursquare, Facebook, and even on some random site.
I’m pretty sure I’ve never been addicted to a certain food before. But Khao Soi is a rare exception. This very simple dish from Northern Thailand got me right from my very first sip.
If you’re not familiar with this dish, which is normal, you might wanna know what this dish is actually made of before I start with my list of amazing Khao Soi from around Chiang Mai. Well, it’s basically yellow egg noodle, with rich coconut curry soup, some meat (beef, chicken, or pork), and crispy noodle on top. Very rich that you always end up craving for more.
I’ve spent my days eating Khao Soi from place to place during my stay in Chiang Mai and I think it will be cool if I could share my favorite Khao Soi around Chiang Mai. And who knows, maybe you guys have another option I haven’t tried yet? Just let me know!
So here we go. My 9 favourite Khao Soi in Chiang Mai. Enjoy!
