    Refreshing dessert

    ice grass jelly
    1 more image

    I've tried all kinds of Thai dessert before, they are usually extra sweet. The most refreshing is the ice grass jelly. It is very simple, made with: grass jelly, ice, and a little bit of coconut milk. Grass jelly doesn't look very appealing, as it is like jello, but is black in colour. It is very popular in many Southeast Asian countries, as well as China and Taiwan. It is made with some type of grass, and can cools you down in a hot day.

    In Chiang Rai, you can find ice grass jelly at a restaurant at the NE corner of Banphaprakan Road and Itsaraphap Road, very close to the mosque. 10 B for a bowl.

    For other types of dessert, you can also find in this restaurant, and another one a couple of shops east of it. How can you tell? If the Thai dessert is served, you'll see what's available at the front of the restaurant. And they are also found in the street stalls. 10 B for a bag.

    Congee and fried dough stick for breakfast

    This is the first time I saw congee and deep fried dough stick (yau tiu in Cantonese) being served for breakfast in Thailand. The congee has pork and egg. Not bad, can be better with a little more ginger and green onion.

    As shown in the photo, the cost is: 25 B.

    Muang Thong: Great food

    A light dinner at Muang Thong

    Another typical Thai/Chinese restaurant with great varieties of food. It can be busy sometimes at night. They have a huge tv showing Thai tv drama inside. I had breakfast and dinner here before. Breakfast was Chinese style: a bowl of congee (rice porriage) with pork (20B). For dinner I saw the porcerlin jar with soup in a huge steamer. Looks good, and that's what I had that night. It was a Chinese style soup with chicken and fuzzy melon. And I ordered a bowl of steam rice. All for 35 B.

    Noodles soup for breakfast

    by mim95 Written May 31, 2007

    Preparing noodles soup

    Noodles soup can be served for any meals and even snacks in Thailand. There are different kinds of noodles to choose from. I don't know their names in Thai, I usually just point to the one I like. There are also different ingredients, such as pork, fish balls, or chicken.

    Thai people always love to add extra sugar, vinegar, pepper and fish sauce etc to the soup, even though the soup is already tasty enough, they still add more.

    This is a market stall in Chiang Rai. A bowl of noodles soup cost 20 B.

    Chinese style bbq pork rice

    It's a typical Thai/Chinese restaurant with the food prepared in the front. Haven't had Chinese style bbq pork for a long time, when I saw them being prepared, I quickly entered the restaurant. And it was delicious!

    The restaurant also serves chicken rice and roast duck, as well as other items. English menu is available.

    As shown in the photo: bbq pork rice with soup and an iced coffee: 40 B.

    by easterntrekker Written Sep 30, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    SIPSONG-PANNA DINNIG ROOM at the Rimkok Hotel

    The best meal at the SIPSONG-PANNA DINNIG ROOM has got to be the lunch buffet. It's amazing . There are so many choices and everything is delicious. It is surely a feast . the only problem is deciding what to have. There are various Tai Yai (Shan) specialities such as Kao Soy 9 egg noodle curry), Khanom Jeen Nam Ngiew (spicy rice noodles) or the famous Tai Lue dish, Kaw Ham Kuen . So many seafood and meat dishes to choose from . The only thing is , it's popular with tour grouos so come early.

    Favorite Dish: I loved the red curries!!

    Lahn Tong Restaurant, Chiang Rai

    The Restaurant is located a little outside right at a River.
    While you are dining or lunchnig you have a real nice view.

    They let water run down the open spaces on long threads to cool the air a litle - quite nice when it is so hot.

    Favorite Dish: They serve the classical Thai dishes.
    Simple but well done

  • Roti Street Vendor: My favorite: Roti

    by Phalaenopsis03 Updated Jan 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every chance I got to pick up a roti, I did. I found this one at the entrance to the Centerpointe night bazaar. Correction, my noise led me to this one at the night bazaar.

    Rotis are simply delicious. They're comparable to crepes and pancakes, and prepared a variety of ways, i.e., with bananas and chocolate, with eggs, etc. However, I prefer mine simply topped with sweet milk (condensed milk) and sugar. Yummy!!!

    Cost wise, they average between 8 Bht to 30 Bht. That's not even a buck. What a deal!

    Food Court: Free Entertainment every night!

    by aqazi Written Aug 27, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the best place to eat in Chng Rai is the food court in the centre of town. They have loads of stalls with all sorts of different foods. Prices are low and food is fresh. They also have live music or folk theatre, and other things going on which makes it all quite good fun. There's a night market here every night so before or after dinner you can go shopping!

    Cabbages and Condoms: Eating in the name of birth control

    by aqazi Written Aug 27, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We ate here a couple of times as the quality was excellent and the money goes towards promoting family planning and HIV and Aids prevention. Its located just outside the centre of town but is easily walkable. Everything you could want is on the menu and the service is very freindly. They have live music on certain days and they serve alcohol so you could make a night of it I guess.

    simple eateries along the mekong: sop ruak

    by call_me_rhia Written Dec 7, 2002

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    dodgy.looking food jars at our restaurant

    Along the Mekong River there is a row of very casual eateries... none exactly sterile clean - but clean enough.. and with the addded advantage that you see the area where they are cooking - and what they are cooking. I belive that one is as good as the other: food's simple but good, and hasn't been left around waiting for you.

    Favorite Dish: a simple and delicious fried rice with pork - and a soft drink, for only 40 baht

    food stalls at the night bazaar: chiang rai

    baskets full of fish at the bazaar

    Chiang Rai - I found very little that interested me... I found it hard to find a place to stay... and it was mission impossible to find an appealing restaurant.
    Eventually I sort of came acrss what I was looking for at the night bazaar: a large part of the main bazaar square is surrounded by street vendors selling all sorts of delicious food. And at the centre of the square there are plenty of tables and benches where people can sit and eat their meals

    Favorite Dish: some dodgy-looking but delicious fish on a skewer from a similarly dodgy-looking street vendor. But it was delicious!

    Yun means clouds. An means garden.
    Yunan restaurant has graceful Chinese garden.
    It's lighted up at night, sitting at pond and dining is comfortable.

    food vendors

    All food vendors sold the same food: Chiang Mai sausage, birds, eggs, fish, bamboo rice etc.
    They looked old and not fresh at all. Maybe because of the reason the business there was not good.

    Run by Chinese and offer Chinese food.
    Although the taste is ok, it's interesting to see a big Chinese building in isolated Mae Salong.
