Foodtrail In Chiangrai Day 2 – Chiangrai, Thailand


Began day 2 in Chiangrai pretty early by catching the sunrise at the rooftop of the hotel. Buildings in Chiangrai are not tall, maybe because of regulations on building heights. Anyways it was a pretty long day so be prepared to scroll down like mad. More of what I see, food wise was limited ‘cos I had very full brekkie at the hotel which lasted the whole day. Anyways, check out below:

Foodtrail In Chiangrai Day 1 – Chiangrai, Thailand


Alright this is a very late post but at least the stalls are still there last check. Chiangrai is a very nice place if you haven’t been. Less crowded as compared to Bangkok and the weather’s cooler especially towards the year end. This blogpost may be quite long due to so many things to write about. So maybe I should just stick to the food? Ok maybe food with some attractions that I reckon you should know lah. Anyways, you will be seeing a lot of food pics and please read the captions below them, and yes I ate most of them. So don’t judge ok? ;P

Countries Where My Readers Come From


 

 

This post is to recognize and thank all my readers who are the driving force behind my continuous writing on good food places. I can’t identify who you are but YOU know who you are! Big thanks and shout out to all of ya!

Frankly, I haven’t heard of some of the country names before… I apologize for my ignorance! I promise I’ll read more about your countries and would be excellent if you can write to me at eatwithroy@gmail.com and introduce what kind of awesome local food there are in your countries! Maybe top 5 would be great! Who knows, I may be tempted to visit your country just to do a food tour some day!

In the meantime, eat on but eat wisely my friends! 😉

Ristr8To Coffee – Chiang Mai, Thailand


Ristr8To Coffee (adapted from the name ‘Ristretto’ which means a shorter espresso) is one of the most talked about cafe in Chiang Mai and probably Thailand. As a matter of fact, people in the coffee industry probably know this place as well. Reason because of the owner and head barista, Arnon is to date the only Thai that made it to the 6th place in the World Latte Art Championships in 2011, which was held in Netherlands. Although he has gotten a lot of public and media attention, Arnon is still pretty much a humble & shy guy. Graduated from Toby’s Estate of Australia in 2008, Arnon came back to Thailand to set up his cafe in 2012 after a series of  accolades during his stint in Australia, which includes the top position in the Latte Art Championship in Australia Capital in 2010.

Ristr8To Coffee is located slightly off where all the action is in Chiang Mai. However, when I visited him on a Sunday at 9am, that place is already quite packed. I was told seats are limited during peak hours. I just love the decor, and the black board that surrounds the whole cafe educating customers what they are drinking. Check out the pics below:

Rating: 4.5/5.

Taste: 4.5/5. To be honest, the food can improve a little more. But I reckon their coffee is their main draw. Their house blend is just awesome. A good balance of boldness from the Brazilian beans, acidity from the Ethiopian beans and character from the PNG beans.

Portion: 4/5. Good size.

Service: 5/5.

Ambience: 5/5. Lovely industrial decor.

Price: On average around 88baht for their house blend. Pretty reasonable for a good craft.

RTE: Definitely!

Location: 15/3 Nimmanhemin Rd, Suthep, Muang, เชียงใหม่ 50200, Thailand. Tel: +66 81 978 0471. If lost, call them and pass your mobile phone to the driver. That’s what I did. 🙂

SPECIALS: Mention ‘eatwithroy’ to Arnon and you’ll get to order the special latte which is not on the menu! 😉
