Good Restaurants in Chiang Rai.

Recommended Posts

That's a very interesting aspect Brahm. Generalizing that because a cheap eatery is full it must mean that most Thais are cheap. Not even a single circumstance as well like what age group, time of the day, weekend etc etc. Doesn't really fit well logically in my book. Fair enough that western owned places shut down, that happens all the time and Chiang Rai is not a place for western food unless you're aiming at coach tours, e.g Ayes etc. We all know that. Well, we should anyway.

I could probably mention that every time I go to a more expensive Thai restaurat, there are alot of Thais in there but I don't say that means all of them have alot of cash. Simple logic and much more correct since Thailand is as any other country in the world with both people with a little money, and those with alot. And they of course, choose their place accordingly.

If anyone else misses their surkål I can give them a tip. Go to the market and buy either white or red cabbage. Boil it with a little bit of water and vinegar, salt, whole pepper corns and maybe a bay leaf or two. Basic cooking for the farangs with some spare time, about 30 minutes.

Sounds exciting, boiled cabbage with a vinegary taste. Thanks for the tip Goski. :)

Well, it's not a Swedish recipe and looking into some from your own pitch we have culinary disasters as "cullen skink", "herring in oatmeal"and of course the highly technical "claggum" with the explanation: "It is a very simple recipe and MAY be suitable for younger adults to make IF THEY ARE SUPERVISED". Ingredients: One teacup of cold water and two teacups of black treacle.

Takes years of experience to get that one just right. Also used for sealing roofs.

I'll stick with the steak, medium rare, with green peppercorn sauce. Liberal lashings of red plonk to accompany...

Herrings with oatmeal? :)

Big C has a nice South African Shiraz, Mont Claire Bin 9 Reserve at 285B a bottle that is very drinkable.

I stayed at Laliuna resort and hotel on Sannambin Road near the old airport prior to eventually moving here and they have a great selection of steaks, as well as a delicious Butter Chicken-get down there!

Following your rec I picked up a bottle of the Bin 9 today at Macro, 285B...typing this now with nice wine buzz. For about a year I hoarded 'Red Center' Merlot/Cab (Australian) from Macro at about 400B a bottle...great stuff but no longer available. This is nice...very peppery/ripe, but you get what you pay for. Thanks for the rec. A great bottle for the price.

This section needs some real upto date information . Many of the places are no longer and as someone said , no sooner some farang owned places open up , they soon close. Mainly due to competition in the area and also the lack of tourism . The local Expats tend to go to the best places that are also the cheapest and to keep your bread and butter customers is most important as without the locals , trade dies and places close. Rent is HIGH for building rentals in the centre of town , 30k bht per month on average and add that to the cost of equiptment , staff, electricity etc etc , the profit margin is zero unless your packed out every day .

If your seriously thinking of opening somewhere here , its best to come and do your homework . check the place out , see what the trade is like in the area at all times of the day, otherwise you will be throwing your money away .

Bars are equally dire here at the moment . Rentals per month can range from about 5,000 bht per month , with no key money required but you have to

set the place up (dont forget all the legal paperwork from the police ) .

Bars also already set up can cost anything from 5-30k per month and generally Key money for the intereior assets / goodwill is required. Again , at the moment the trade is dead , I would think near on every bar in the area are either at a loss every month after all deductions or possibly breaking even . Those bars making a profit ? Does anyone want to lose face ? Thai or Foreign owned or run.
