[Chiang Mai, Thailand] Lunch at Nasi Jumpru (นาซิ จำปู๋)

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.

  1. Deep-fried lychees stuffed with minced shrimp:

  1. 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.

  2. Pig’s ears, served with Thai pickled, spicy vegetables.

  1. Northern-style “Hong Lay” beef curry.

  1. Deep-fried chicken wings.

The only dessert item available was Mayongchid, a peach-like local plum, served sweetened and iced.
