Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday. Eating out in Chiang Mai is a real treat for budget travelers. Not only is the food cheap, but it’s delicious. Many of the small local “joints” serve up one specialty, and they often become known far and wide. The Pad Thai on Chiang Moi Road, Soi 3 is just such a place. Have a look and see what you think.
To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply post a photo on your blog. Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.
Please post a link to a post featuring a travel photo, not simply a link to your blog.

This is where all that Pad Thai goodness is created. You can watch everything as it happens.
Served hot out of the wok, on a plate lined with a banana leaf. For any vegetarians, no meat.
How hot you like your Pad Thai is up to you. All condiments (including chili) are available at your table. You also receive a plate with spring onion, bean sprouts, lemon and cabbage. I always add chili (hotter is better!), the lemon, and I eat the spring onion and lettuce when my mouth gets a little too hot. Both do a great job of bringing a little cool relief.
How much you ask? Including a jug of ice water at the table…30 baht!! ($1.02US). Thai portions are not overly large, so you might have to order a second plate. (What a hardship, eh?)! :)____
Don’t think you’ll be able to sample Pad Thai in Thailand anytime soon? Here’s a delicious recipe for vegetarian Pad Thai, you can try at home.
Located just outside the moat in Chiang Mai’s old city, Chang Moi Road, Soi 3. There’s a sign at the beginning of Soi 3. You can also come in from Thapae Gate Road. Look for the simple sign “Pad Thai”. Open from around 5pm until 11pm. Busiest time seem to be between 6 and 8. Lot’s of Thais on motorbikes lined up for takeout.
