Mae Chaem Restaurants

Discussion in 'Restaurants - North Thailand' started by DavidFL, Aug 22, 2010.

  1. First choice in town is the Sikon

    Popular, fresh food & top value for money.

    Getting a farang breakfast in Mae Chaem is problematic & if you ask the Sikon the night before, they can prepare one for you the next morning.

  2. The Krua Kong Jan has a reputation for the best food in town.

    Ron Webb, Jurgen & I dropped in here for a meal the night after the Mae Hong Son International Music Night

    We were hungry & each ordered a couple of dishes, thinking they wont be big & it would be no problem to eat.
    Well we were wrong, the servings were huge & the food fantastic. We could not eat all the food & promised ourselves that we would be back to sample their food again.
    What you see in the pic above is only half of our "snack."

    The Krua Kong Jan is on R1088 north of Mae Chaem, on the west (left hand side heading North), 1.7 kms from the main T intersection in town.
    GPS Waypoint: N18 30.830 E98 21.546
    The restaurant also has a superb view from the 1srt floor, where you should dine & enjoy the view.
    You can see Wat Buddha En across the padi fields from the restaurant.
  3. Lung Dang has reopened as Heuan Man Muk & its now a bit of a hot night spot with the Ban Yang Luang sisters running the joint.

    The HMM now has music




    Well worth checking out for happy hour....and the food I had there was very good; although I found the seating arrangements not so comfortable.

    a cute smart clean coffee shop in the centre of town.

    overlooking the rice paddies 300 metres "behind" the hospital


    once one of the most popular in town, but the police have taken their business to the Heuan Man Muk & they pull in the punters there now. Koung Nga is relatively quiet in comparison. But worth checking out at dusk for a quiet bevvy & /or a quick meal.
  6. Another newish spot is the Nui Suan

    popular with teachers & nurses from what I can gather.
    West of the Mae Chaem hotel - Resort
    Towards the River
    Located in the Soi parallel to the main North-South Street.
  7. Across the river is the Krua Rim Nam Chaem

    Location, across the river on the west side.

    Go downstream 150 metres & it is riverside, opposite the Pam View guesthouse.
