Chiang Mai was definitely the highlight of our trip. We were welcomed by this amazing coffee which was made from scratch (I mean right from powdering coffee beans) at Chiang Mai Arcade 3.Cost : 35 Baht
By the time we reached Chiang Mai city it was evening. And we were welcomed by this BEAUTIFUL view of our hotel. It felt like Deepawali all over again! Each and every house and cafe was decorated with diyas.
I am talking about crickets, scorpions, silkworms, crocodile meat, dried lizard, etc. etc. etc. I am not putting this on this list for its taste (though some will find it good; but all I taste is fear and crunchiness). I’m rather putting this on this list for the experience, as well as for you to have the ‘bragging rights’ of saying that you’ve eaten one! Besides, it is believed that these pack a LOT of protein and with no fat! So, why not?
The quintessential Northern Thai dish of crispy and soft egg noodles in a creamy, curry-like sauce made with coconut milk. It’s typically made with chicken or beef, though some places offer versions with pork, shrimp, or fish as well. It’s usually served with a side of chopped red onions, pickled cabbage, and a wedge of lime. If you like, you can add pork rinds into your Khao soi for some extra crunch. And, yes sometimes they do make the vegetarian curry noodle as well. Served noodles vary from white rice noodles to brown glass noodles.
