Tour guide:

Moui Tipsribud

Moui hails from Lampang, but has called Chaing Mai home for over 20 years. With a passion for Northern Thai cuisine and cooking, Moui knows the secret spots around town that most travellers would never find alone.

 

Don’t follow the herd… Hop on board and ride around town 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 guides, Moui and Pin. These two ladies know the Chiang Mai food scene like the back of their 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 venture 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 watch the city’s butchers at work. 

*Sorry veggies, this one isn’t for you, but stay tuned for a meat-free Chiang Mai food tour coming soon.

**Street food vendors take time off too, so we can’t promise every tour will be the same, but fear not, the night will always be packed with good stuff.

Reviews: What other people think...

  • This is an absolute must, especially if you are on a short stay. You will experience traditional Thai food in some of the strangest places unknown to most tourists. For the brave there are some really exotic treats to savour. From start to finish, there is not one dull moment.

  • Starting off the night with a short introduction to Thai food and hitting up one of the most famous spots before the crowds arrived really set the tone for how great our evening would be. Our guides were so friendly, chatting with us the whole time and helping us to find things we'd never tried before, even after living in Chiang Mai for two years!

  • Amazing tour through some of the most secluded food joints in Chiang Mai. Each dish is different and more delicious than the last. You'll get to go to places that you would have never found otherwise. There were not many tourists at the places we visited, so you know the tour is targeting a really authentic and unique experience. The food is incredible too.
