Grilled Duck & Dim Sum, Chinese Style

Ped Yang Yaowarat Chinese grilled chicken
Dim Sum type stuff available as well
Perfect duck over rice, or get a whole plate if with more people

I think this is one of the best and fairly inexpensive places for some Chinese fare, especially the grilled duck dishes as well as dim sum and made-to-order Chinese food. Ever since I went to Hong Kong I've invariably been dissapointed at dim sum in Thailand. This one gets pretty close though! The restaurant is a typical shophouse setting on Suthep Road, on the left side JUST before you get to the intersection (T-crossing) with Nimmanhaemin Road. It's a fairly new place, clean and bright with a nice Chinese theme to it. I can recommend this as one of the best places for duck, when you don't want to go to a fancy restaurant but also don't care for the typical 'dirty Chinese shophouse' experience. Also it's just the best place for Chinese grilled duck in Chiang Mai, not including the top of the line Chinese 'pattakans' (restaurants)

Wow. This place is one of a kind in Chiang Mai. We all know Thailand is not famous for chocolates of any kind, but this place is really awesome. Various kinds of chocolates and bonbons are made at this companies factory in Bangkok, and now Chiang Mai has a branch. It's not cheap of course, but who cares because it's the only one of it's kind and it's real good! You can select bonbons or truffles or chocolates form a display case, where they pack them for you in a box. Most go for like 12 baht a piece. There are a few tables where you can order coffees and hot and cold chocolate drinks. These go for like 45-55 baht and this includes two chocolate bonbons per cup/glass.

The place is on Bamrungrat Road, near the British Council, but on the other side of the road, close to the intersection with Kaew Nawarat road. Some people may know Bamrungrat Road as the Sayuri Road.

The Best Khao Soi in Chiang Mai

Mae Jam Paa Khao Soi
The shop grew very fast and is still almost full for lunch daily
Size of the bowl makes the serving look small on pic. It's not!

The picture doesn't make it quite so obvious, but beware when you order the 'special' Khao Soi (Burmese style yellow noodles in curry, a traditional Chiang Mai dish) at this particular Khao Soi restaurant. I actually asked to have it changed into the smaller bowl you see on the last picture #6 here. I was so stunned at the first one, I thought they were taking the piss at the 'big Farang', serving him an absolutely embarrassingly large bowl, more like a tub, of Khao Soi..

So I actually was embarrassed and asked to have it changed, and they brought me this slightly smaller one.. But then upon looking around in the restaurant, I saw other people (Thais only) also getting served these huge tubs of 'special' Khao Soi. (blush) Even in this one on the picture the only way the chopsticks can be placed on top is by moving them to the side, the center diameter is too large!

Suffice to say, this is probably the best place for Khao Soi in Chiang Mai. Not just in quantity but in taste as well. It's not one of the longer established 'famous' ones, like those on Fa Ham road. This one is off Aom Muang road, the Southern part of the ring road. The place is called 'Mae Jam Paa'. When coming from Nong Hoy intersection on the ring road going towards Don Chan (Big C) intersection, do a U-turn under the frist flyover over the railway tracks, then it's the first soi on the left. (Soi Techno Asia) Keep driving along the little canal and cross the little bridge at the first opportunity, the shop is right there. Many cars will be parked there at lunchtime. Also try the Kuaytiow Tom Yam noodles! This special sized Khao Soi bowl that seemed to have like half a chicken in it was 30 baht. Regular is 15 or 20 I think.
