Welcome to the first Travel Photo Thursday of 2014, and our 158th episode. The Christmas and New Year festivities are history, and it’s time to get serious with some new year resolutions. My first resolution for 2014 is eat as many different kinds of street food as I can find during my stay here in Chiang Mai. I know this is going to be a difficult one to keep :) I started on my quest even before the new year was official. A couple of days ago I walked into the old city, and walked down the street close to where I had lived last winter. I was hoping that the lady who made the delicious kanom krok was still in business. I was not disappointed. Let me introduce you to a delicious, budget traveler friendly, street food, that the Thais often eat for breakfast.

In English these delectable morsels are called coconut pancakes. Made with coconut milk, green onion, and probably a few other ingredients thrown in, cooked on this very unique griddle and served up piping hot on a banana leaf tray. This vendor is here pretty much every day from about 6am to 8am, and there is always a line up. For 5 baht (15centsUS/Cdn) she will serve you a batch of 10 -12 of these delectable little morsels. She even adds a packet of sugar just in case you want them really sweet. Trust me, you really don’t need the extra sugar.
Just in case you want to make them at home, I found this recipe. Finding the grill could be a challenge, but maybe someone will come up with a good alternative. Do let me know!
This vendor is very easy to find, as long as you are an early riser. From Thapae Gate, walk about two minutes down Thapae Gate Road towards the river. You’ll find her on the right hand side, and there is usually a line-up!
