One of my favorite dishes for lunchtime is all types of noodles. Yellow noodles with duck or fish balls in particular. They’re quick to cook, hard to mess up, and universally loved. You may be able to locate a shop along your route, but it may not be the most popular shop in the area.
Let’s go to eat
Here’s the basic restaurant guide to the types you are most likely to see when shopping or eating out.
It will be possible to find regular along the way, and it may also sell other types of food. But I’d like to recommend a restaurant that specializes only in noodles.
So, I will take you to the small noodle shop, the kiosks, and cover the street food. You will get the real taste and atmosphere of each restaurant’s identity as well.
1. O Pa (โอปา)
One of my favorite noodle shops is on the main road to town. Pork noodles with or without clear soup. The recipe is for homemade pork balls. The shop uses flavors that are good quality and look clean.
If you like noodles with some spices and a little bit of protein, let’s try it with Thai fast food. This is a nice place to be for a quick noodle lunch.
2. Fish Noodle Soup “Jea Da”
The location is not far from Royal Flora Chiang Mai. The best bowl of fish ball noodles might be one of the best in Chiang Mai.
The open-air noodle shop is on the left into town. No air conditioning means that it can get quite warm, but it’s good if you want quick, tasty, and efficient service.
Fish balls are made fresh every day; no MSG, no MSG, clean and good quality. It’s delicious but slightly expensive for me, and I have to order 2 bowls.
3. Chicken Noodles with Chinese Herb Soup | Ros Savoey (รสเสวย)
One of my favorite lunch spots around Chiang Mai. The brown chicken is soft, tender, and falls off the bone, melting in your mouth.
The soup was extraordinary; it was served either with noodles or rice. Both are delicious and taste fantastic. I like boiled chicken wings. I will continue to order for takeout and be a regular.
The stewed chicken is Thai-Chinese food (Teochew vibe) but modified to come in the clay pot (terra-cotta bowls with handles).
On the way back to Chiang Mai University (CMU), there’s a new branch next to Wat Suan Dok.
Morning or lunch is better
If you love health and breakfast is a priority. Noodles may not be able to satisfy you in the morning, and finding a noodle shop may be difficult.
Most of them will be available for sale from 7.30 onwards. Most of us like to eat it for lunch. Although the weather is quite hot, that’s a great taste.
For another reason, lunch breaks are short and people rush back to work. Noodles are an alternative that can be served and turn customers in and out quickly. You’ve had enough and do not succumb to the sleepy heat of the afternoon.
In the evening, it might be difficult to find a noodle shop as well.
You will have to go to the night food area, the gathering of restaurants, and the shopping, and entertainment zone. You might find these shops when you come home late.
After the noodles meal, I highly recommend drinking hot tea if it’s available. If not, regular drinking water (no ice) is better.
All about noodle
You can also learn more about the various types of noodles and their names. It is an English dialogue that is used to create a range of teaching materials that are both funny and enjoyable on screen. It’s possible that this will make you prefer eating noodles.
In addition, I also made Chiang Mai Noodle Maps for everyone to explore more by themselves. And I will update you when I have a chance to eat at these restaurants.
