Reposting an old thread that went missing BREAKFAST The best choices are the Tammila or the Bamboo Mexican The Tammila Bamboo Mexican The fruit muesli DINNER 4 good choices The Baan Maitri - the best THai food Rin's Bar - big servings of farang "pub food." Bamboo Mexican - the best fresh Mexican food anywhere on the Mekong Pan Pan - guesthouse & restaurant open late at night when the others have closed BAAN MAITRI The Baan Maitri restaurant has the best Thai food in town. It is riverside, downstream from the customs office & between the Rim Nam & Rim Khong restaurants. Cops & governement oficials from Chiang Rai often come to dine here when in town. My favourite dishes A Yam Tuna & Apple, with chillies & carrot For an out of this world taste sensation. Mekong fish with black pepper Pork fried with herbs & spices THE BAMBOO MEXICAN For the best Mexican on the Khong RIN’S BAR Just down from Tammila & The Bamboo Mexican Good drinks / food/ pool Table / PLUS satellite TV where you can watch the MotoGP races live! Plus Rin turn out some pretty good value for money farang food. PAN PAN Late at night in Chiang Khong most of the riverside restaurants are closed by 9-9.30PM, with most of their business done late afternoon – dusk – early evening. If you get caught out, then give the Pan Pan Guesthouse – Restaurant a go. Its cheap ‘n cheerful & damn good food – as we found out = worthy of a return.
