I'm also very sad to say that the male - husband owner of Siam Corner, recently died in hospital after a lengthy illness.
His wife the cook still runs the place, but she says that maybe she will put the business up for sale, as it is no longer fun without her husband there.
We have to wait & see, but if you are ever in the Ched Yot bar strip vicinity, then make sure you try out the Thai food at Siam Corner. It is tops & all the bar girls there will tell you - YES Siam Corner has the best Thai food in that area.

Yod Doi Coffee & Restauarnt

IMG_3903.jpg


a fresh open air coffee shop 20 metres from the clock tower.

IMG_3906B.jpg


Damn good coffee
IMG_3907.jpg


IMG_3908.jpg


including Hazlenut Latte, one of my favourites

They also have a nice selection of teas

IMG_3909.jpg


Plus it is a good place for brekky - fruit museli with yoghurt & avocado

IMG_8942.jpg


Plus salads + tasty sandwiches + croissants

IMG_8944.jpg


Check it out. Highly recommended. They are also open late at night for a late night cuppa.

Note too there is more than one Yod Doi Cofee by the clock tower, one is aircon & only has mediocre service & atmosphere.  THE one to go is the charming non air con Yod Doi coffee on the S-W side of the clock tower .

Agreed on this one. Great coffee & nice omelettes.
For Yod Doi fans they have opened a new location, diagnonally across from the Nangnon, so you've got two top choices close by.

Nam Ngiew PaNuan. N 19 deg 54.189'. E 99 deg 50.025'.

Vietnamese and northern Thai restaurant. Tucked away on a small soi, right in the middle of the city on San Pa Nat Soi 2. This is just south of the Central Bus Station on Prasop Suk Road.

The owner is a biker, an artist and a collector. There is "stuff" everywhere in an old rebuilt house. It seems popular with those who know the city well.

Most of the restaurant are you showing I don’t know but I will try.

Is not cheap total bill 1500 Thai baht for 4 people drinking water with lemon.
What i can say is a romantic place not for the wife,is much better bring her to the street food in the market and try to enjoi place like this with the mia noi lover o secret love.
I am joking :)

Is not a restaurant for every day but just some special event.

Another fantastic place is La Ola Spanish restaurant
Also this restaurant is close to ex ringkok hotel now Indra hotel I think the name.
One way for found this restaurant is from the new bridge of Chiang rai direction Mae sai and where have casa mio and Mexican food go left side for about one km.
Is just in front of the entrance one village and not east to see if ask to the security they will say is at 10 mt distance
Also this one is for special event because is not cheap I think they have promotion
at lunch one sangria and paella for 2 people at 1000 Thai baht.
Danny the chef is Spanish from canary island.

At Sunday for lunch buffet at Meridian Hotel.
In the past at Meridian hotel have always a fantastic buffet with choise of fish beef Thai food international and 1000 thinks most of all very delicious.
Nothing to compare with the buffet have every day in the past in wiang inn hotel and wiang come hotel very cheap and acceptable was only the dessert.
Now I don t know if they do again every Sunday but same weeks ago I been there.
590 Thai baht
I eat 6 plate of beef.:)
Drinking just water,the price in hotel 5 star like this are not cheap if start to drink

Nothing to compare with the past and 1000 choise of food at buffet
but for change and is not also far away from home.
Another idea for Chiang rai must to ceck in internet when they do at Sunday lunch buffet.
And don’t think I go only in exclusive restaurant but sametimes I need,I like Thai food but not everywhere can eat very well like CST Si Satchanalai for a cheap price.....
