Eating in Chiang Mai

Eating in Chiang Mai, Chiang Mai, Thailand (B)

I love food, and I especially loved eating in Chiang Mai. From dim sum to Japanese to traditional Thai street food, you can get it all! Here are some of the highlights that I found:

Food is literally everywhere you look in Chiang Mai. Vendors with tables and plastic chairs are on every corner, and there are countless markets with clusters of vendors.

I tried food at the Warorot Night Market but wouldn't recommend it. Go here for shopping, but skip the mundane food courts (our street food guide wasn't so impressed with them either).

If you go just down the street, though, you'll reach a small modern market called Ploen Ruedee Night Market International Food Park. I would recommend this if you want something a little different—I had a bao bun there filled with pork which was actually a bit soggy, but the samosas and pad thai looked good, as well as some spicy seafood dish. It is on Chang Klan Rd across from the Night Bazaar and easy to miss, so just walk down that side of the street and look for the sign and bales of hay on the ground. It’s a good place to sit with a glass of wine and listen to a DJ or live music. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
