The Friday Yunnanese (or Ciin Haw) market is one of my favourite places to go, stuff eat and people-watch in Chiang Mai. It’s a perfect representation of northern Thailand’s diversity in both culture and food: Chinese Muslim, ailment Shan and various tribes from the highlands. Mohinga is Burma’s national dish (bean+fish+banana stem soup over rice noodles) and is dished up fresh every week at the market. I’ve had three types now (can you see me licking my lips?): from the market; a pork version made by Ajan Tui’s mother who is from Mae Sariang; and, page another Karen-Burmese rendition by way of the Yangoon/delta region. All were scrumptious!
