Bussaba Tum Leoi
Whether you are among those living in Chiang Mai or tourists who are planning a trip there, if you know that you couldn’t resist the smell of fermented fish and the taste of the chili-laden somtum, Bussaba Tum Loei is a must. This outdoor restaurant serves authentic Northeastern-style cuisine with choices of spicy and strong-flavored dishes, and also has signature homemade rice vermicelli noodles (from Loei Province). Must-try dishes are tum kho khe, tum sua, and tum wanni hai di thi sud. If you want to figure out what they are, you will have to book first. The restaurant is in Soi Wat Mongkhon Setthi, Nong Jom (next to Maejo University).
