There are many different types of great food in Chiang Mai. There are also many restaurants, food stalls and markets, many of which serve the same dishes. We wanted to learn more about local cuisine, and we wanted to sample it at the best places in town. A Chef's Tour allowed us to accomplish all of this and more. Moui was an outstanding guide! She taught us about the local culture and food, and was very attentive throughout the tour. We were able to meet the famed Cowboy Hat Lady and ate some of her great Khao Khaa Moo. From there, we visited a market and sampled everything from a Thai Preserved Century Egg to curry puff pastries... to sai oua sausage, and many other things. We then traveled to another place and had larb and tried other items that were obtained at the market. The evening continued with several more stops and many more food tastings. Some of which included: Burmese salads, sweet potato balls, grilled fermented pork, noodle soups, steamed cakes, exotic fruits and ginger tea. In total, we sampled well over 20 different food items.
The tour was great because we were able to try a wide range of high-quality and authentic local foods at places that we would have never found on our own. This coupled with Mouri's excellent guidance and explanations made for a entertaining evening. It was a great experience.
If you are in Chaing Mai, do not miss the opportunity to go on this tour. It will be a highlight of your visit.
