I’ve shared the places I visited while in Chiang Mai so now I’m sharing the restaurants where we had lunch or dinner during our visit. Thai food usually is just as flavourful as it is colourful and I swear I can live in Thailand because their food is just ahmaaaazing!
Warning this post if all about food! Though I don’t know most of the names of the dishes I ate (sorry na, I was even in a hurry to take photos because I couldn’t wait to eat them all!), still I’m posting because I really enjoyed experiencing them. I’ll also share which is my favorite even though I’m pretty clueless of its name and ingredients. Heehee. Craving and wanting to go back to Thailand as I type this. Hahahuhu.
201 Charoenrat Rd. | Rim Ping Condominiumม Wat Gate Subdistrict, Chiang Mai 50000
If you want some riverside dining then Samsen Villa is for you.
Red Curry With Roast Duck
Spicy Mixed Vegetable Soup
Deep Fried Papaya and Banana Flower Spicy Salad
This is my favorite dish! Crispy fried banana and flower dipped in spicy salad was everything! I can still remember how yummy this dish is.
Crab Meat wth Coconut and Chili
ROYAL PROJECT RESTAURANT
Royal Project Kitchen grows some veggies which they serve to guests. You’ll see them surround the restaurant.
Spicy salad. I think this is a staple in Thailand. I like it so much I’m researching how to do it.
What we had at Royal Project Kitchen is kinda similar with what we had at Samsen Villa. But if I were to choose a favorite, it would be this dish. It’s got that distinct Thai curry taste and the best part? It’s a perfect balance between veggie and meat.
Royal Project Kitchen is surrounded with lush greens–flowers, plants and veggies too!
The restaurant with a view. The ambiance speaks of nature and the food was something to look forward to.
Again, was in a hurry to eat and so I wasn’t able to check my shots were blurred pala! Hahahuhu.
No Thai trip is complete without having some sticky mango rice!
61 Moo 3, Sanambin Road, Suthep Subdistrict, Mueang Chiang Mai, Thailand
It kinda has that home-cooked vibe going on.
Curry in coconut. Okay this might not be the most accurate description for it but it’s my favorite from the bunch.
Sweet banana that was unfortunately barely sweet.
OHKAJHU ORGANIC RESTAURANT
This restaurant is one that I will remember because it serves yummy organic food & some of the produce can be literally found at the back the restaurant. They offer mostly greens & veggies but I was surprised that they have other items on the menu even for carnivores. They have extensive food and beverage menu that we actually had hard time choosing what to eat.
I have died and gone to salad heaven!
They have different concoctions from smoothies, teas, coffee, to cold pressed juices!
This was a beautiful bowl of goodness!
Most of the restaurant’s dishes come with a side order of salad. My favorite? The avocado salad and this baby back ribs.
This one’s a short rib dish that’s equally delicious as the baby back ribs.
My teammate Mon caught me in the act as I finish what rib was left on my plate! This is evidence that I really eat a lot. No shame in that!
MEENA RICE BASED CUISINE
This restaurant tucked in a quiet street offers healthy dishes that are both colourful and flavourful.
Nicely presented juices which taste equally nice.
I’ve had more than one glass of juice. Ummm I think I tried three different ones? 🙂
A curry dish that I really liked. It being wrapped in banana leaves make it more appealing to eat!
One of the famous dishes of the restaurant is their colourful rice. I believe this may also be one of the most photographed dishes as well.
Fried ice cream to cap off our meal. It was refreshingly good.
Writing this post made me crave for the food I’ve tried at Chiang Mai! Curry based, chili sprinkled dishes from Thailand will always have a special place in my belly & in my heart.
