Khao Larm
Today not an actual restaurant but more of an outlet for a famous Northern snack that's also often brought back by Bangkok people after travelling to Chiang Mai/Chiang Rai. I'm talking about Kho Larm: rice cooked inside a bamboo stick. :) Khao Larm may vary in sweetness, mostly it's sweet, but not overly so. Coconut milk and some type of bean is often added, and you can get Khao Larm from various kinds of rice, including the dark reddish 'black rice'. You often see stalls selling Khao Larm along major highways in the North. None of those are as good or even as cheap as the Khao Larm from this outlet opposite the Sheraton Hotel (formely Westin Hotel). It's just across the bridge over the Ping river on the left side of the road, so opposite the Sheraton. Varrious kinds go for 10, 12 or 15 baht per 'stick'. Try it! Note that this place also sells the paper hot air balloons (khom loi) that are released in great numbers around the Loi Krathong festival. This place sells them throughout the year, not just a few weeks before Loi Krathong.
