We got this recommendation online. So it was no surprise that the beef noodles at Rote Yiam beef noodles restaurant is a hit for me. On top of that, the store doesn’t look like much and the staff barely speaks English but we still managed. Despite the restaurant’s outlook, don’t let it fool you! In contrast, the beef noodles here really packs a flavourful punch! In my opinion, I think the restaurant deserved to be known as the best in Chiang Mai! Come and try it for yourself!
In comparison to Bangkok, Chiang Mai is a landlocked region. As a result, seafood can be expensive and not easy to come by. Therefore, Chiang Mai isn’t the best place to find seafood. Instead, the local cuisine has evolved towards freshwater. Hence, freshwater prawns are easier to get and really fresh. For this, look no further than Paak Dang, a riverside restaurant, said to have some of the freshest picks! We ordered some of the featured dishes of the restaurant and we did not regret. Though the food here can be pricier than elsewhere, it is well worth it.
