A taste of the north

Chiang Mai has its own flavour sensations, with dishes you won't easily find elsewhere

- +

Many things attract tourists to Chiang Mai. There are its natural beauties and ancient historical sites, streetside vendors selling handicrafts and, an especially alluring feature for many visitors, restaurants offering all kinds of food. The chance to taste such an array of tasty dishes, some of them unavailable elsewhere, make a visit to Chiang Mai especially worthwhile from the food standpoint alone. 

Huean Phen serves mainly traditional northern dishes.

Today I would like to suggest some restaurants well worth seeking out. I'll focus mostly on food that that is purely northern Thai, and preferably on dishes that cannot be found in Bangkok. The restaurants will primarily be older places that have clienteles of long-time regulars. The ones I'm recommending have been well-known for years, are still doing business with the quality of the food as high as ever.
