Back from the Songkran party & holiday, picking up where I left off.. It's still very much the hot season in Chiang Mai, so good idea to do another airconditioned place today. Called Eat Me! :-S
Eat Me is a bright, young and cute place that combines cake & bakery with regular Thai and some Western food. It has an inside airconditioned area as well as some tables outside. As this is the hot season, most people opted to go inside.. Prices are still quite low, higher than food-stall or small shop level but still well below 'big restaurant' prices. Figure 30-60 baht for most dishes. Attempted Western food even, the Ceasar Salad which actually was far better than I expected. This keeping in mind that my expectations for Western food in pretty much Thai-only cheaper locations aren't necessarily that high, but a good serving of a nice crisp lettuce, bacon flakes, croutons and actual grated parmesan cheese and right amount of ceasar dressing is well better than par for this course. :-D Actually finding any cheese at all in Thai restaurants that's not the pasty Kraft plastic-wrapped stuff is already worth mentioning. (Hell, finding a salad dressing that's not a sweetish yellow cream is worth mentioning! :) )
Eat Me! is on Nimmanhaemin Road, a road that really came alive the past 2-3 years with lots of pubs and interesting little restaurants that mostly seem to be run by younger enthusiastic operators. Eat Me! is on the left side when going towards Suthep Road, before you get to the traffic lights of the road that branches off to Chiang Mai University.
