Chef Andy Ricker reviews  at
"Woke up thinking about this dish from dinner last night at Puang Thong : Kung Tom Manao, prawns boiled in pork stock with lime, lots of garlic, fresh phrik khii nuu, coriander root and leaf, whole prawns including the heads, seasoned with a bit of fish sauce and tiny bit of sugar. Reminiscent of Mexican Sopa de Lima in flavor. Almost a perfect dish."

"Back at the excellent Puang Thong tonight, and ordered this remarkable dish: Yam Kratiam (garlic salad). Bit of a misnomer as there isn’t much garlic in it, just kratiam ton (single cloves garlic). Instead there is very fried squid rings, prawns, cashews, dry chilies and fresh chilies, shallots, herbs, fish sauce, lime juice and palm sugar."

"Khao Soi Prince makes (IMO) the best Khao Soi in Chiang Mai but they also make some other tasty dishes like his one: Neua Phat Phrik Haeng Haw, beef stir fried with dry chilies, ginger, garlic and onions."

"Roots rock Khao Soi at Khao Soi Prince. Unchanged family recipe going back two generations. They still make their own noodles but are no longer behind Princes Royal College and also they sell Phat Kaphrao for the locals, to make ends meet. Chiang Mai institution, sadly forced to move out of the shop they occupied for 40 some odd years, now down a Soi around Maejo University. Worth seeking out!"

"The second most popular dish at @michelinguide Starred (!!) Jay Fai: Rat Na. Delicious and made more so by the atmosphere and the proximity to Chef Jay Fai who has not hung her star yet because she is too busy to get around to it.. 🙏🙏🙏"
