Best Food in Chiang Mai
Posted on 06 / 30 / 2012
Food is fresh, excellent, vegetarian (a few dishes use egg and/or dairy), healthy, mostly organic and reasonably priced. Staff and owners extremely good hearted and accommodating to special requests. A very warm, family-like atmosphere. I have been going almost every day at least once per day for months, since they opened. One thing I noticed was that I would see the same basic crowd of people almost every time I went and most of them were long-term tourists who just happened to live in that particular area. But it showed that those of us who had found the place kept coming back.
Anyway, now is low season, the crowds are finally thinner at my favorite eatery, so it now makes sense to let you all know about it. Until recently it was almost impossible to get a seat during anything like normal meal times, so I figured I would wait till the crowds thinned before reviewing.
It is located 75 meters north of the old YMCA (a few blocks north of Huay Kaew Rd and the Kad Suan Kaew shopping complex). Excellent salads, raw food, juices, shakes, smoothies sandwiches and international fusion and Thai cuisine.
It is a covered, open-air, non-smoking venue with lots of trees and plants and the building walls are pleasantly covered with a natural earth plaster giving an overall very natural and relaxed feeling. Thai food starts as little as 40 baht (US$ 1.30) for a good sized bowl of herbal veggie organic rice soup. Big (full meal) organic salads range from 55 to 80 baht. Various international entrees with small salads range from about 80 to 120 baht with most around 95 baht. They also have teas and chai and coffee and some desserts. There is also a small shop where you can buy some fresh produce and some natural home and gift products. A better number than the one listed is + 66 870116599
