I have spent 2 months in Chiang Mai on business. Friends of mine who have stayed in this vibrant city for a while highly recommended me to check out the Sunday brunch at the Latest Recipe at Chiang Mai's Le Méridien hotel. Food-savvy that I am, I directly went there on my first Sunday in town and returned whenever I could. Khun Peter, the executive Chef, personally prepared me a Swiss raclette which was doubtlessly the highlight of my brunch. But the food goes far beyond that, the outstanding buffet offers something for everyone's taste. The variety of food is incredibly vast and international with just the right local touch; from the freshest salmon sashimi, to the most tender roast beef with mushroom gravy, light and crispy vegetable tempura, vast selection of Asian curries, the finest of Swiss and French cheeses and a sweet tooth lover's dream of a dessert buffet - it is impossible to find fault with this Sunday brunch and would thoroughly recommend it to any fellow food lover! What's more, you definitely won't have to eat again until Monday morning cus the choice of options is just too great to narrow down. I also opted to return to the Latest Recipe for a quick dinner during the week and my previous experience got reinforced; I opted for the pumpkin-chestnut soup which was simply delicious. It came with a shrimp-bruschetta and warm, fresh French baguette. This soup soon became my Chiang Mai favourite and I enjoyed it various times during my stay. But the restaurant also does an equally tasty burger and has a great selection of Tapas at its bar. The value for money of this restaurant is hard to top for its competitors, the food quality is outstanding and the price very reflective of its quality. Staff are very attentive and friendly and make you feel at home even if you're enjoying a meal by yourself! As a cherry on top, the location of the restaurant is absolutely ideal for those who want to have a digestive stroll through Chiang Mai's famous Night Bazaar.
