Full description
This tour is about showcasing local food heroes; where local Thais love to go and eat. On this 3½ hour tour, your guide will take you off the beaten track. You will try some amazing tasting Thai food in humble surrounds. You will be eating with locals, which just backs up the age-old adage that ‘locals always know where to find the best food in town‘. For this tour, you will experience venues that have a high standard of food hygiene, are family-run with family recipes, yet offer truly 5 star flavours without a 5 star appearance. Your tour begins where locals come to satisfy their appetites to start the day. Under this traditional 2 story Thai house there are 3 generations working. There is a steady stream of hungry customers dropping by for take away, or sitting at the tables slurping freshly made noodles, all this with fresh Nam Prik Pao: Chilli Jam, taking pride of place. It’s in no way fancy, but there’s a reason for its popularity; super tasty food with fast and friendly service! You will stop at a local restaurant to taste dishes from the Isaan region, the NorthEast. This region of Thailand is known for their salads and freshly meats. We also pay a visit to a very local eatery located just opposite Glai Kangwon Palace. This restaurant exclusively serves Northern Thai cuisine. True to the palace’s translated name, Far From Worries, you have no worries to come to try two of the North’s most famous dishes in Khao Soi: Chiang Mai Noodles and Sai Ua: Chiang Mai Sausage. It’s not so easy to find great Northern food outside of the North of Thailand, but here, this woman has been serving up great Northern food for over 20 years. You’ll taste why she has been going so long. We will also squeeze in a stop at a popular area for daytime street food before finishing at a garden restaurant to taste some classic dishes from the central region of Thailand. This tour is great for those who are new to Thailand or love seeing local life. All the food on this tour is a lower to medium spice, though very delicious. However our tour guides are very good at finding great dishes and also spicing it up if you need it. Note: This tour is not suitable for strict vegetarians or for guests who are vegan. If you have a dietary or food restriction you must inform the tour operator upon booking. This is a join in tour and meals/food are shared.
