Located along a strip of nondescript halal restaurants near Chiang Mai's famous Night Bazaar, this veteran vendor dishes up a khao soi that exemplifies the Muslim school.
A dollop of curry paste is stretched out by a generous ladleful of hot coconut milk. The noodles are pale and slippery, a stark contrast with the rippling yellow strands typically associated with khao soi. Less refined palates might want to punch up the flavor by adding the condiments on offer: ground roast chili, sliced shallots, a squeeze of lime and crunchy pickled vegetables.
