Khao soy

Our last night in Chiang Mai we tasted THE typical dish of the north called khao soy. It is a noodle dish with a chicken stock base to which vegetables and spices are added. You make a choice from among various meat combinations, whether you want round or flat noodles and whether you prefer the thicker coconut milk curry broth (quite spicy) or the thinner Yunnanese style broth. It CAN be sloppy to eat, so as a precaution you are outfitted with a bib.

Looks like you are in Just Khao Soy restaurant in a back street behind the Night Bazzare.

Great restaurant, best meal I think I have ever had in fact. Had to go back for seconds.

Next time I am in Chiang Mai the very first thing I will be doing is going there and getting my fix. In the mean time, I am trying to cook some up at home!

I learnt my lesson and put the 'bib' on the second time around!!

My second best restaurant in Thailand.

Yes ... you guessed it right. I want to be the first in line when they decide to franchise this in the States.
