    A Moo Yang at the Siam Corner
    IMG_2000.

    another plug for the first class food at the Siam Corner.
    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.

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

    IMG_3906B.

    Damn good coffee
    IMG_3907.

    IMG_3908.

    including Hazlenut Latte, one of my favourites

    They also have a nice selection of teas

    IMG_3909.

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

    IMG_8942.

    Plus salads + tasty sandwiches + croissants

    IMG_8944.

    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 .

    The Bistro for a great breakfast.  This place has a really good, complete English breakfast, price is 150 baht, I think and that price includes coffee of your choice and a glass of orange juice.  They also do a nice range of omelettes.  Breakfast is served all day.  Hours are 08:00 to 22:00.  Just a couple of minutes ride from the clock tower.  Indoor seating non-smoking and outdoor covered patio seating with smoking allowed.

    The Bistro is located in front of the first floor of the Chiang Rai Condotel.

    The CR Condotel is located at the orange marker on this Google map here- http://goo.gl/maps/sJPo7

    Retro Pub

    A cool open air pub with nice music at a sensible level so you can still have a half decent conversation.

    Nangnon Coffee Chiang Rai.

    Great coffee, breakfast spot on Jedyod road, right behind the Wangcome Hotel.

    The best Coffee I’ve found in Chiang Rai by a long shot.

    N19 54.359 E99 49.870

    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.

    2018-11-12 12.39.51.

    2018-11-12 12.37.54.

    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.
    2018-11-12 12.37.40.

    2018-11-12 12.40.45.

    I had some Vietnamese style delicious chicken and prawn pancakes with the usual basket of fresh greens.
    2018-11-12 12.27.24.
    Highly recommended and very fair prices.
