Chivit Thamma Da Coffee House – Chiang Rai, Thailand

This is my first post for an eatery in Chiang Rai! Found this place online and highly recommended by lots. Touted as the best restaurant/cafe in the whole of Chiang Rai, this place lives up to its name.

Situated just beside the river, to access to this place, you’ll need good navigation and the roads are really narrow. When I reached the place, I was wowed by the whole architecture of the place! Chivit Thamma Da means A Simple Life or Ordinary Life in Thai language, is not simple after all. All the work put behind decorating the place is just amazing. This is the work of bits and pieces put together since they started 3 years ago!

The Scrambled Eggs Muffins with Smoked Salmon was excellent, even though coming from someone who don’t really enjoy the fishiness. The chef put in some thoughts to the sauce which is pretty similar to hollandaise sauce but with a stronger tinge of lemon to kill the fishy smell. The latte was well prepared, giving the whole cuppa a really great body and after taste… even till the last drop, the taste stayed uniform.

This place gave me so much inspiration that I started to video my reviews instead. No ratings given to this place, think it’s obvious they are full marks for every aspect. See video below. 🙂
