As the Aussies would say: Yeah, Nah!

I wound up in yet another Grab taxi hurtling my way to the night market to try this Khao Soi place that always creeps onto top 10 lists in Chiang Mai. My driver was confused as to why it was called Islam? I didn't have an answer for him other than the owners were probably muslim (they were). He added that the world is going to hell because of the Chinese building hotels and casinos everywhere and putting locals out of work, I gently nodded.. hungry. 

The spot was in a small soi, a giant place with a rather unnassuming facade, I wandered in, found a vantage point as far away from people as possible and ordered "Khao Soi Gai".

Within 2 minutes flat the food came. Worryingly fast. It wasn't hot, the chicken was tough, the noodles were cut into small pieces like kids spaghetti, the "crispy" noodles became mushy after 10 seconds, the curry soup was thin and uninspiring and doused with soy sauce so much that it overpowered everything else.

I left most of the bowl, paid, smiled and vowed to tick that one off the list and never return.

This restaurant is one of my favourite as I have been a client for over 10 years. It is very close to Chiangmai Night Bazaar and the Governor's Residence. In the past, I have taken my Muslim foreign visitors for lunch and they truly enjoyed the foods. My favourite dishes are chicken biryani, goat biryani and Khao Soi (northern Thai style yellow noodle in light curry.
