The undisputed culinary highlight of the area, Chiang Dao Nest is worth the trip from Chiang Mai all by itself. Discover imported ales, fine wines and sophisticated modern European dishes you wouldn't expect to find in the jungle, such as salmon fillet wrapped in filo pastry with green tapenade. For equally outrageous Thai fare, head to Nest 2 down the road.
On Thursday nights from November to Februrary, the Nest throws a delicious all-you-can-eat BBQ (375B per person). Grilled items include things like pork spare ribs with homemade BBQ sauce and fillet of Norwegian salmon in parsley oil.
