I came across this place while doing some research on Chiang Mai. This is a very well known stall near the north gate of old Chiang Mai,especially as the cook wears a cowboy hat.
Apparently the whole cowboy hat wearing thing was so the glare from the lights on the stall wasn’t so bad and then it became her trademark.
Also she is very well known in China and my first attempt to go there was during the Lot Krathong festivities. The scrum of 40 or so Chinese tourists around her stall attested to her popularity and I beat a hasty retreat. I tried again yesterday at 5:15 on ( she opens at 5pm, closes 2 am) and most of chairs were occupied but we were served very quickly.
I went for the main event a large portion of stewed pork leg and rice. The pork was beautifully tender and succulent from long cooking. The yolk on the egg was still a little bit soft.
The pickled mustard greens and chillies in vinegar provided contrast and cut through the fat.
Absolutely delicious and an absolute must for me in Chiang Mai
