When I was in Chiang Mai, Thailand…

Influenced by neighbouring countries (particularly Myanmar/Burma), the food in Chiang Mai is truly distinct. Here is some of the food I sampled, including a few of Chiang Mai’s most popular dishes (eg. khao soi, sai ua, kalamae, kaeb moo, nam prik noom):

Khao soi (curry egg noodles)

Image

Khanom jeen nam ngiaw (fermented rice vermicelli noodle soup)

Image

Sai ua (grilled herb sausages), Kaeb moo (crispy pork rinds) and Nam prik noom (roasted green chilli dip)

    1. Hi!

      I bought the kalamae from Suthep market although I’m sure it can be found at any other market in Chiang Mai. I also saw them being sold at Central Festival Shopping Mall on the ground floor at one of the dessert stalls. Hope this helps you 🙂
