Category: Thai Food


First time I have seen these in Thailand. I think they are a common snack  in Vietnam and the Philippines. I was passing through Mae Tang a few weeks back and stopped by the market to pick up some barbecued eggs and saw these being prepared over the charcoals.  Supposed to be quite tasty but couldn’t stomach one for my breakfast!

While at Huay Tung Tao at the weekend our friend Alan ordered a bowl of Goong Dten (Dancing shrimps). This dish is quite a delicacy in Northern Thailand. The dish consists of a spicy salad with plenty of chili and lemon juice as well as some very much alive shrimps…..nice!

With so many eating options in Chiang Mai tack and I rarely find ourselves preparing anything more than  simple snack in our own kitchen at home.  About once a month we manage to go to a simple Moo Jum joint  on the west side of the city moat.  Moo Jum consists of a small clay charcoal burner with a clay pot on top containing  a lightly flavoured soup in this soup you can add various meats, vegetables, noodles.  You just let the meat gently boil until cooked.  This is a really healthy meal. On our visit tonight we ordered about 7 dishes from the menu and we were stuffed. The bill came to around 200 Baht (about 3 quid)

Indian food in Chiang Mai

Thai food is is delicious, plentiful and cheap, but living here in Thailand I frequently crave for something different and I guess a couple of times a week I find myself eating exotic western foods such as fish and chips or pizza. One thing I do really miss is a good Indian Curry. Chiang Mai has a few Indian restaurants knocking out reasonable Indian curries but nothing that compares to a good ‘English Style’ Indian Curry. Most Sundays I do manage to satisfy my curry craving at the ‘Sunday Walking Street Market’ The guy who runs the Royal India Restaurant sets up a small stall knocking out some good favourites. Chicken Masala, Fish Masala, Dal Curry, Samosas, Nan Bread and Chicked Kebabs all feature on the menu. You will find him in Wat Pan On on Sunday evenings. Chicken Biryani and Daal curry start at around 25 Baht (thats less than 40p in real money!)
