Set within an emerald-green paddy field, a short 25-minute car ride out of Chiang Mai, Nasi Jumpru’s modern-Thai cuisine proved to be light, tasty and amazingly addictive. The beautifully setting was a definite plus, away from hustle and bustle of downtown Chiang Mai.
The entrance was marked by a train of colourful Balinese-style flags.
Interesting selection of modern takes in Northern Thai staples.
- Deep-fried lychees stuffed with minced shrimp:
Fermented pork, Northern-style (“nem”), wrapped in banana leaves with century-egg and salted duck’s egg, and steamed, served topped with flying fish roe.
Pig’s ears, served with Thai pickled, spicy vegetables.
- Northern-style “Hong Lay” beef curry.
- Deep-fried chicken wings.
The only dessert item available was Mayongchid, a peach-like local plum, served sweetened and iced.
