Thai Food. Chiang Mai Sightseeing

Chiang Mai, Thailand
February 2013

We had a dinner for 4 persons in a Thai restaurant.
Picked up the popular thai dishes, I don't remember its names. There were fried fish, a salad, tasty something looking like a white soup and fried chicken in leaf wraps.

The fried chicken dish was garnished with a simple carrot flower. No carvings. Food first :) Don't you think the chicken in leaf wraps looks decorative?

The next day I found a recipe of the fried chicken in a guide magazine at my hotel.

Take your time walking the Buddhist temple. Watch the local people doing rituals. You can do the same. We donated to the birth day's god to get the upper spirit support, got a strength from a Buddhist monk and picked out a fortune prediction (it was similar to O-mikuji in Japan). 

I had evening train to Bangkok that day. Well that was time to go back to the city, toward new carving lessons and new meetings!
Khun, Karla, Rob, see you on Facebook! :-)

Hi Selena,

Being Asian, I love to eat fried chicken wrapped in leaves and usually like mine to be wrapped with pandan leaves.

Enjoy the rest of your holidays.

@Zoe, thanks for commenting the post. I am not good in South Asian food cooking. Not sure I can do the leaf wraps. I have got a rice paper and made spring rolls with it.
