Thailand: Ploen Ruedee Night Market, Chiang Mai

These gyoza are so good, we ate here twice. On one trip we had 12… each. 

They’re from a tiny little stall in the Ploen Ruedee Night Market, which is an off-shoot from the main Chiang Mai Night Bazaar with very Shoreditch-vibes. It’s an open square with all sorts of food and drink stalls around the perimeter, live music performances in the centre, and of course lots of seating. 

Great Good Gyoza serve pork, chicken or vegetarian gyoza for an absolute BARGAIN – ฿100 (£2) for 12 gyoza. 

Mother and I also got a mixed platter from Cowboy’s Satay, and a couple of drinks from the bar. I would not recommend that anyone with a peanut allergy eats anything in Thailand, as nearly everything comes containing or topped with peanuts. I fell in love with peanut sauce on our trip and ordered another pot after I’d finished the one pictured. 

Freshly cooked satay chicken, grilled corn, baked potato, fried bread and short ribs. Nom. 

Japanese food is abundant in Thailand, and in the more touristy spots like the Night Bazaar there’s cuisine from around the world. In the Ploen Ruedee Night Market there were many specialty stalls ranging from soup to vegetable juices. A must-stop spot if you’re in Chiang Mai!
