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.
You start the tour 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 (น้ำพริกเผา) - 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 then travel to Baan Rak & The Cassia where you will meet a local girl who started selling Kanom Gui Chai (ขนมกุยช่าย) • Steamed Chinese Dumplings, from the front of their family home. With local Thai people searching for healthier food options, their offerings are fast becoming more and more popular. We watch how the cooks prepare Gui Chai, learn about its history and taste some freshly made. At the next stop, you will taste the dishes from the Isaan (อีสาน), the NorthEast. These dishes are designed to challenge the taste buds a little. The depth of flavour exhibited by this regions is astonishing.
On the way to our second last venue, we stop and try some roadside sweets, Khao Lam (ข้าวหลาม), cooked the traditional way, in bamboo tubes
Your penultimate stop is a very local eatery located just opposite Klai Kangwon Palace (วังไกลกังวล). This restaurant serves exclusively Northern Thai cuisine. Here there is no menu in English. 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 (ข้าวซอย) • Chiang Mai Noodles and Sai Ua (ไส้อั่ว) • Chiang Mai Sausage.
Our final destination is another very local institution. Its serene garden location serves excellent Thai food. Here you try Gaeng Kiaw Wan (แกงเขียวหวาน) • Green Chicken Curry with Roti. Khun Nim's example is one of the best you will ever taste. You also sample a unique Thai dessert in Khanom Thuay (ขนมถ้วย) • Steamed Coconut Pudding.
Note: Sometimes our regular vendors are closed on the day you have a tour booked, however we have other vendors that are equally as good in the event that there are closures.
Tour Highlights:
  • Around 15 food tastings stopping at 5 restaurants & 1 street food vendor
  • Slurp and eat noodles within a traditional 2 storey Thai house near the railway line
  • See how a classic Chinese snack has been updated; see how it's made by a local Thai family
