    Herbert from Pizza Primavera in Bangkok, has opened the Pizza Primavera restuarant in Mae Hong Son. Great pizzas and other Italian and international favourites, together with good wine selection. The restaurant is on the right on the main road just past the left turn down to the lake.
    Herbert can also give you some tips on good local sights to see.

    Looks a bit like a cave alright

    & you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d see Fred Flinstone, Wilma & Barney Rubble. Not all the locals in MHS are impressed either.

    Some other establishments

    KAIMOOK
    The best Thai food in Mae Hong Son
    [​IMG]
    30 years & still going strong.
    When Air America was being filmed in MHS this place rocked.
    I have fond memories of enjoying numerous – continuous Irish Coffees in the Kai Mook in the cold cold season

    Some of the best Thai food you can get. Highly recommended.

    Son & Mom
    a couple of hundred metres up the road – hill from Salween

    Run by Dar, the cook from the original Sunflower & the current Sunflower.; she now has her own funky little place.

    Now once upon a time the original Sunflower(pre George by the lake) used to be the # 1 brekky & coffee shop.
    Run by La, a trekking guide who was once married to an Aussie gal, had the best & only real cakes & pies in MHS.
    And these were made by Dar.
    Dar now makes cakes & pies at her Son & Mom shop. Carrot, chocolate, cheese cake; but they are not kept out on display – you have to ask for them.

    AIR CON COFFEE SHOPS
    MHS has a lot of coffee shops, but few aircon ones.
    From what I can gather there are only 4, maybe 5; & if you’re a bit hot from walking round town it’s good to be able to cool off in an aircon coffee shop.

    ALAWAA

    right around the corner towards the temple from Piya, but is so tucked away on the corner you’d almost never see it or know it is there.

    HUAI HOM Coffee
    [​IMG]

    Coffee Shop & Pub
    owned by the Fern Resort
    big, spacious, modern.
    The coffee & day time service is very good.
    It’s also a cool spot for a happy hour drink – the music starts at 7P
    [​IMG]
    I did note however that there is only one waiter on duty in the evening & he obviously can’t cope when it is busy or full.
    Despite getting the menu & myself & trying to order a solitary beer I had no success getting served & left after 20 minutes.
    So I tried again & returned the next night – early, the first & only customer & promptly got my preferred beer that night. All’s well that ends well.

    SAIFON COFFEE

    a cute Thai fashion coffee shop.

    The Mimi is another aircon coffee shop at the top north end of town as you leave. But sorry no photos.

    PRE SUNSET COFFEE
    is on Doi Kong Mou where you go to watch the sunset & the lights come on in Mae Hon

    Pre Sunset Coffee & Doi Kong Mou is well worth a visit at the end of the day.

    BEER WUN / WOON ?
    is a new popular pub on the bus station road south of town
    I found the music, atmosphere + service all good = I shall return
    [​IMG]

    Good jazzy music
    [​IMG]

    a wonderful giant of a waitress
    [​IMG]
    impressed by the size of the Versys.

    MELODY
    is a cheap & popular roadside Thai restaurant also with coffee & ice cream

    200 metres downhill passed the Fern restaurant.
    Run by the delightful Miss Mai, who likes to hang out in the Crossroads Pub; albeit with her cop husband, the local fitness champ & body builder, who too is a really cool guy.

    Enjoy Mae Hong Son now. Its worth at least 2 or 3 nights. There are loads of good food & drinking spots.
