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.

George's Sunflower by the lake - the happy hour meeting spot

GTR-IMG_2710.jpg


GTR-IMG_2714.jpg


Looks a bit like a cave alright
GTR-IMG_2727.jpg


& 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
GTR-IMG_2807.jpg

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

GTR-IMG_2809.jpg


GTR-IMG_2811.jpg


GTR-IMG_2812.jpg


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

Son & Mom
a couple of hundred metres up the road – hill from Salween
GTR-IMG_2744.jpg


GTR-IMG_2745.jpg

Run by Dar, the cook from the original Sunflower & the current Sunflower.; she now has her own funky little place.
GTR-IMG_2746.jpg


GTR-IMG_2747.jpg


A standard breakfast
GTR-IMG_5185.jpg


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
GTR-IMG_5192.jpg


GTR-IMG_5195.jpg


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.
GTR-IMG_5194.jpg


GTR-IMG_5191.jpg


HUAI HOM Coffee
GTR-IMG_5163.jpg


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
GTR-IMG_2806.jpg

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
GTR-IMG_2785.jpg


a cute Thai fashion coffee shop.

GTR-IMG_2783.jpg


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.

GTR-IMG_2730.jpg


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.

Shine Coffee

in the main street just down the hill from Crossroads, heading North.
GTR%20-%20IMG_9721.jpg


A nice little friendly open air coffee shop & restaurant
GTR%20-%20IMG_9723.jpg


The coffee was surprisingly very good, but I went for the all day breakfast (the Salween was closed for the annual holidays.)

Well worth a try. Nice atmosphere in the main street.
