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)


Khanom jeen nam ngiaw (fermented rice vermicelli noodle soup)


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


Kalamae (sweet sticky candy made from palm sugar, rice flour and coconut milk , wrapped in palm leaves)


Massaman chicken curry


Prawn and mushroom Tom Yum soup


Roasted sesame seed cakes


Roti with condensed milk


    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 🙂
