Chiang Mai food tour

Don’t follow the herd… Hop on board and enjoy this unique food tour with us in one of Chiang Mai’s famous rod daeng trucks. Delve into the history behind Northern Thai food and the influence Burmese cuisine has had on the region with your foodie guide. She knows the Chiang Mai food scene like the back of her hand and will lead you away from the crowds on the most exciting food tour in town.

After starting with a delicious plate of khao ka moo (braised pork in five spice) from the famous cowgirl, it’s time to continue the food tour outside the old city walls to some of the best secret street eats and real local markets. Dig deep into the city’s underbelly; explore how locals shop for ingredients and discover what true Northern Thai cuisine is about about.

Why this tour is awesome

Northern Thai cuisine is a mystery to most. Forget what you know about Thai cuisine. You won't be trying pad Thai or red Thai curry on this tour. Get to know the secrets behind the regional cuisine and try dishes and snacks like roasted pork, gaeng hang lae curry and minced larb salad among much more.

Bounce around to 5 to 6 different spots trying dishes at vendors that only locals know. Hop right off the well-trodden tourist path and dive into Chiang Mai's real foodie scene.

Full on your preferred date? How about our lunchtime Chiang Mai food tour?
