Extraordinary portion

You'll get a huge portion of salad with half an avocado on top.
This was the first time for me eating Burmese food and I really liked it. It is a little spicy and for me it got too spicy at the end but I'm also really not good at eating spicy food.

Delicious fresh food

On the walking street, most definitely worth the money. I’d share with someone if you can because the portions are huge, and suuuper tasty.

Pros: Huuuuge portion, Super tasty, Cheap

Cons: May have gave me food poisoning

One hell of a salad!

First time trying a Burmese tea leaf salad, i wasn’t ready for the flavours! It blew my mind. Be sure to get the avocado, it’s well worth the 80b in total, she gives you like half an avocado!
The spices, the flavours, and the size of the thing makes this salad one of the best salads i’ve had! Highly recommend.
The picture makes it look small, trust me, it’s a meal on its own😂

Soooooo good

The best Burmese salad, and it's soooo affordable. If you say no avocado, it's only 60 THB

Pros: All vegan, Avocado optional, Nutty, tangy and spicy 😋

Love it

I don’t know how a traditional tea leaf salad taste like because I never tried it while I was in Myanmar 😹 but I had a tea leaf salad with avocado here and it was way too delicious. It was a lot of salad and a lot of avocado. Very yummy!

Amazing avocado salad in pitta

The salad was huge, tasty, well dressed and the pitta was large and nice and soft.

The food was delicious and good value albeit more expensive than street food usually is. But the portion was huge so I think the price is justified.

The only downer was I forgot to say no raw onion and there was quite a lot throughout the salad but this was my bad! I'll remember next time, will definitely return!

We visited during rainy/low season whilst Thailand is still in the grip of international Covid induced lockdown so no tourists are coming in. The entire walking street was not operating on several days that we stayed in Pai when it had been raining the entire day and most of the evening. There was almost no one out and about in the town so i understand why.

Pros: Excellent food, Big portions

Not a tealeaf salad

This typical dish from Myanmar is one of my favourites and after a month in Myanmar I came to Pai, saw this stall and was so excited to fin tealeaf salad I had to try it, but I was disappointed, they barely put any tea leaves or seasoning, so it’s actually just cabbage

Huge salad for fair price

We had the Avocado Tea Leaf salad which was huge and filling but the dressing tasted a bit bald. Just some lemon or a bit more vinegar would make it taste way better, if you'll tell them I'm sure they do it for you😄the price was fair it was a really huge portion and they also topped with with half a big avoo.

Huge pita

The pita was huge. The salad was great although it's not totally Burmese tea leaf salad. They even added tofu in the salad. I was actually full with one huge portion. One tea leaf salad with pita costs 80B.

Pros: Huge portion

Nice and fresh

Tasty, big portions of freshly prepared tea leave salad in pita bread - a great meal. Would be nicer if they would offer some chairs to sit down while eating though.

Heaven in a pitta

This was such a divine and wholesome pita. The Burmese tea leaf salad with avocado in the pita was amazing. So many flavours and textures going on. It’s a huge portion and fills you up and is healthy. Will definitely be coming back again.

Must in Pai

Authentic Burmese tea leaf salad, fresh and flavorful. You can also have it rolled in a rice paper or in pita bread. A real standout in the walking street, it is one of those dishes you will definitely remember for a long time😄They now have a place to sit, which is a real advantage.

Tea leaf salad plus avocado in pitta

This pitta was immense. It was 110 baht and worth every penny. So much flavour and it was a massive portion, I had to eat quite a lot with a fork just to get to the point where I could pick it up. If you want a simple , healthy and delicious meal from the walking market then this is the place to go.

Burmese tea leaf salad

Duuuude, this salad is amaze balls. Got it twice. Filled with so many tasty ingredients made fresh to order in front of you. Add avocado for even more flavor and texture. You won’t regret this salad. Just be careful, I ate late one night and then had a hard time sleeping but I’m sensitive to caffeine.

Pros: It’s so dang good
