Chiang Mai – Panchalee Vietnamese Restaurant

Via: where to eat in Chiang Mai?

Panchalee is a rather unassuming restaurant in a quite lane off trendy (and rather hectic) Nimmanhaemin Road, which is great because I can easily find parking! It’s really nice to sit in the outdoor section – in fact, most of the diners opt to sit there, at least when I’ve been here for dinner. Bring your mosquito repellants though if you don’t want to get eaten alive!

1 – My favourites (so far) at Panchalee:

Kuay Jub (Vietnamese Noodle Soup) – 40 baht ($1.29 USD)

tried to stay away from noodles for this post, but I can’t help it!

This Vietnamese Noodle Soup at Panchalee is a dream!  Lovely silky smooth noodles & soup, very slightly thickened, highlighted with a peppery flavour and earthiness of fried onions. It’s so good I think I’ll be happy just eating this!


2 – Shrimp on Sugarcane 85 baht ($2.74 USD)

This is a really great dish too. The sugarcane prawns are nice and crispy, the “meat” firm. I also love to chew on the sweet and crunchy sugarcane sticks inside. Very nice with the sauce.


3 –  “Pak Mor” – Pork mixed withspring onion in steamed flour – 50 baht ($1.61 USD)

The flour “skin” is amazing. Just the right consistency. Sticky and soft enough to hold everything together, but we are still able to break the “pak mor” easily with our spoon or fork. Tasty and aromatic filling. Topped with “moo yor” – sliced pork loaf. Really good when steaming hot!
