It’s certainly hard to go wrong with fried chicken, so I get it.
While walking around the other day, I spotted a restaurant that was packed with people who appeared to be locals. That’s no small feat in a city as crammed with tourists as Chiang Mai.
I mentioned that there are many, many temples in Chiang Mai. But the most famous one, Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, is actually just outside the city. It’s worth the trek.
Well, this is it: my last bowl of khao soi in Chiang Mai. Thankfully, I went out on a high note. Khao Soi Mae Sai is often called the best khao soi in Chiang Mai, and yeah, it’s quite good.
Do you like beef? Do you like all of the beef? If so, Rote Yiam Beef Noodles in Chiang Mai is a must-visit.
There are a ridiculous amount of temples in Chiang Mai. I don’t think you can walk more than a block or two without stumbling onto a temple. It reminds a bit of Kyoto in that way.
The khao soi from Khao Soi Khun Yai was my third bowl in Chiang Mai, and it’s going to be very, very tough to beat.
The coconut pudding pancakes (or kanom krok) I just had are odd — tasty, but odd.
There’s a whole bevy of street vendors that pop up in the evening on a stretch of road across from the North Gate in Chiang Mai. There’s a lot of tasty food to be had here, but the most popular stall (by far) is Chang Phueak Pork Leg Rice.
