Tong Tem Toh

Top choice thai in Chiang Mai

Set in an unpretentious garden of a teak house, this trendy cafe serves deliciously authentic northern Thai cuisine. The menu roams beyond the usual to specialities such as nám prík ong (chilli paste with vegetables for dipping), gaang hang lay (Burmese-style pork curry with peanut and tamarind) plus a few more adventurous dishes using snake heads and ant eggs.

The grilled fermented pork with egg in banana leaf is divine.
