The Overview

Gaeng hang lay, an opulent spice-laden pork curry inherited from the Burmese when they ruled the region from the 16th to the 18th centuries, has as many variations as northern Thailand has great cooks. At Huen Jai Yong, a charming restaurant occupying a traditional-style wooden structure 20 minutes from downtown, the gaeng hang lay is smoky-sweet from palm sugar, fragrant with star anise and cinnamon, buzzy from prickly ash and shreds of fresh ginger, and features chunks of meat that give way with the edge of a spoon. Other specialties of the house are nam prik num (roasted green-chili dip), eaten with deep-fried pork skin (kep muu) and gaeng khae pla, a vegetable-heavy fish curry made with whatever's in season. This bucolic spot is especially popular on weekends, so be sure to reserve.
