This video begins an ultimate Thai food tour of Chiang Mai, Thailand. Get ready for some incredibly delicious Northern Thai food!

Khao soi (ข้าวซอย sometimes khao soy), or curry noodles, is one of the most popular Thai dishes in northern Thailand. It has a very unique history and though details are not completely known, most say that it originally was brought from Yunnan, China through Myanmar, adapting along the way, and finally reaching Chiang Mai, where it’s become of the iconic foods. In Thailand though, is where the dish accumulated coconut milk, which is found in most version now.

What is khao soi (ข้าวซอย)? Khao soi (ข้าวซอย) typically includes yellow egg noodles of some form, which are combined with a meat – usually beef or chicken (and I typically order beef as much as I can) – topped in coconut milk curry sauce, and finally sprinkled with coconut cream, and finally topped with crispy fried noodles.

There’s a massive debate over who serves the best khao soi in Chiang Mai, and I don’t think it will ever be resolved because everyone has a different taste. But along with the help of my friend Tom (from Chaseki tea shop in Chiang Mai: and Joel, we set off to eat 5 bowls of khao soi in a row to share with you what we think is the best khao soi in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Here are the restaurants we ate at:

1. Khao Soi Islam (ร้านข้าวซอยอิสลาม – This is a longtime restaurant serving khao soi in what is known to be quite a traditional version. It’s a Halal restaurant, and their beef is amazing, but the curry is quite mild in spice.
Price – 60 THB ($1.82) for big bowl

2. Khao Soi Khun Yai (ร้านข้าวซอยคุณยาย – Next we went to Khao Soi Khun Yai (ร้านข้าวซอยคุณยาย), what was many years ago one of my favorite bowls, but this time?
Price – 40 THB ($1.22) per bowl

3. Khao Soi Loong Prakid Kad Gom (ข้าวซอย ลุงประกิจกาดก้อม – Many locals from Chiang Mai recommended I check out Khao Soi Loong Prakid Kad Gom (ข้าวซอย ลุงประกิจกาดก้อม), and it was amazing. The size, and the taste were spectacular.
Price – 40 THB ($1.22) per bowl

4. Khao Soi Mae Manee (ข้าวซอยแม่มณี – About a 10 minute drive from the center of Chiang Mai we found ourselves in a neighborhood for our fourth bowl of khao soi at Khao Soi Mae Manee (ข้าวซอยแม่มณี). The Aunty was so friendly and I watched her as she assembled our bowls, amazing.
Price – 40 THB ($1.22) per bowl

5. Khao Soi Mae Sai (ร้านข้าวซอยแม่สาย – Finally, to end this best khao soi tour of Chiang Mai we went to Khao Soi Mae Sai (ร้านข้าวซอยแม่สาย), what is one of the most popular restaurants to eat khao soi in Chiang Mai.
Price – 50 THB ($1.52) per bowl

  1. I would not want to sit and eat near those 2 long propane tanks lol. In Asia there are a lot of news about propane explosion inside people's home lol

  2. When you order your Thai food there is mild, medium, hot then “Thai hot” ? believe the new one should be “Mark Weins ? “ and you have to sign a waiver

  3. That's what sets you off, Mark- your intense passion for food. Both your buddies are dragging by bowl four (though Joel, always the imposter mimicks passion) but you are roaring and ready to go for number five!!!

  4. Mark, that is an impressive Khao Soi Chiangmai review. TAT should hire you to promote the best foods of 77 provinces, there is no need pay for Michelin Star we need a real life food critics like what you did, awesome man cheers!????

  5. Great to here of a Khao Soi place I haven't tried and you voted best! I'll try to make it to Khao Soi Mae Manee when my gal needs to go to the Gov. offices up there. We've gone to at least a dozen Khao Soi shops & restaurants It's hard to pick a favorite. I just go on Google maps and look for new ones.I'd recommend the one on the south east corner of the 3 Kings monument.Prapokkloa Soi 12 if only because they have deep fried mushroom Khao Soi! Never seen it anywhere else,it's amazing!

  6. Joel is a wonderful addition to your team Mark, my family really enjoy watching the two of you trialing the most amazing delights! Excellent and authentic quality YouTube viewing! Blessings to you all from Adelaide, Australia ☀️??

  7. Thank you so much for this video, khan soi is my absolute favourite Thai dish. Yesterday I finally found Khao Sou Kun Yai after a couple of unsuccessful passes by two days prior. She definitely did not disappoint! I'm planning to go back tomorrow with my bro and his family. The only down side is that I am only here for a week. This will be the standard to which all other Khao Soi will be compared in the future. Keep the videos coming! ?

  8. Seriously!
    I love Mark and his videos but sometimes I think he forces a bit with the faces but then comes Joel and it is just hilarious. Even before eating he is making faces!!!!

  9. Mark Wiens, We are in Chiang Mai now! We went to # 3 for khao soi, it's the closer one to where we are staying. The Grab ride cost much more than 2 bowls of khao soi! It was very good, the best so far! Thanks!
