    WIANG HAENG

    Bua Jine
    The # 1 (?) restaurant in Wiang Haeng.
    Spotlessly clean. Large menu. Good service & tasty food.

    300332=19731-GTR-WiangHaeng-Restaurants-05B.

    300332=19732-GTR-WiangHaeng-Restaurants-06B.

    300332=19733-GTR-WiangHaeng-Restaurants-07B.

    + top of the range 3 in 1 coffee for breakfast.
    Location next to (40 metres west of) the Wiang Haeng market
    GPS Waypoint: N19 33 29.1 E98 38 13.8
    But note that they close early by 6.30PM

    So if at night they are already shut, the next 2 choices are 7-11 & the Nine Karaoke.
    I opted for the Nine Karaoke

    NINE KARAOKE

    300332=19734-GTR-WiangHaeng-Restaurants-01.

    Open only 3 months in June 2014.

    300332=19736-GTR-WiangHaeng-Restaurants-04.

    Wiang Haeng city's # 2 night spot
    The other night spot being Cowboy Resort, but closed 4 months for renovation in June 2014.

    A bachelor's meal at the Nine Karaoke

    300332=19735-GTR-WiangHaeng-Restaurants-02B.

    Location on R1322, 1.5 kms west of the Wiang Haeng market.
    On the left hand side heading for Piang Luang.
    GPS Waypoint: N19 34 09.9 E98 37 48.8

    PIANG LUANG

    KRUA PIANG LUANG

    300332=19737-GTR-WiangHaeng-Restaurants-08B.

    Spotlessly clean. Large Menu. Extremely well run.

    300332=19740-GTR-WiangHaeng-Restaurants-11.

    Undoubtedly the # 1 spot in PL with groups of soldiers, police, school teachers & government officials coming for lunch.
    I was impressed.

    Large menu for display & easy ordering.

    300332=19738-GTR-WiangHaeng-Restaurants-09.

    My 5-star Phat Thai.

    300332=19741-GTR-WiangHaeng-Restaurants-12.

    the 5-star cook & owner's daughter

    300332=19743-GTR-WiangHaeng-Restaurants-14.
    I was again very highly impressed, such that I will return .

    + a coffee shop with all the goodies.

    300332=19739-GTR-WiangHaeng-Restaurants-10.

    Iced cappuccino.

    300332=19742-GTR-WiangHaeng-Restaurants-13.
    not a small cup, but jumbo sized.

    Location R1322, left hand side heading into Piang Luang city.
    Opposite the school.
    GPS Waypoint: N19 41 02.4 E98 37 33.5

    If you're out that way at all I'd rather eat in Puang Luang anytime.
    The Bor Chin in Wiang Haeng is ok, but the Krua Piang Luang is superior every time. DON'T miss it.
    The Krua Piang Luang rocks - its worth a trip way out there!

    On the left heading north just before, about 100 meters, the signed left turn to Pai, 3km north of Wiang Haeng central, is a small noodle and pork leg (khao khaa muu) shop that I found pretty tasty. There is also a shop across the street to top off with gas and the road to Pai is all forest and no gas for the next 2 hours so you do want to top off the tank in Wiang Haeng.

    Another big plug for the Krua Piang Luang, fantastic food & service for 4 days while I was in Piang Luang for Poi Sang Long 2015.

    A note on the brownies - IMHO unbelievably good & if you ride R1322 into / from Wiang Haeng, the Lisu gals at the sale viewpoint "20 kms" out of WH have the brownies for sale with their cheap coffee.
