Krua Phetch Doi Ngam

Krua Phetch Doi Ngam is a friendly place decked out in Thai "country chic"—simple wooden tables; colorful paper lanterns; English and Thai country music on the stereo.
ADDRESS
267 Mahidon Road, Chiang Mai, Thailand

The Overview

The northern Thai love of strong flavors is embodied in gaeng om, a hearty meat stew seasoned with tua nao (discs of sun-dried, crushed fermented soy beans), chilies, a local variety of prickly ash, and warm spices like coriander and fennel seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. The wonderfully comforting beef version, gaeng om nuea, served at Krua Phetch Doi Ngam, a friendly place decked out in Thai "country chic"—simple wooden tables; colorful paper lanterns; English and Thai country music on the stereo—also derives flavor from chunks of galangal, whole lime leaves and bits of offal. It's hard to hit an off-note with anything from Krua Phetch Phet Doi Ngam's sometimes cryptically worded menu; other don't-miss regional dishes include jaw pakkat (a sour soup with mustard leaves) and ep muu, pork rubbed with pounded spice paste, wrapped in a banana leaf and then grilled.
