Kheuy Chiang Mai
Consistently admired by people in Chiang Mai for almost 3 decades, Kheuy Chiang Mai (formerly located at the old city’s moat) is a must if you are craving an authentic Northern-style meal. Their new location is spacious with ample parking and it features a relaxed atmosphere right next to the Ping river. Though the Northern cuisine is the real draw here, all the standard Thai dishes including those from the Northeastern region and Chinese fare, altogether over 300 items, are done very well at this well-known riverfront restaurant. Local favorites include Northern-style d'oeuvre set, hang le curry, stir-fried Thai puffball mushrooms, and phak wan vegetable soup with ant eggs. The restaurant is on Charoen Rat Road.
