Chiang Mai Day #5 Kennett’s Tour
Sadly our last day in the incredible Chiang Mai. Here comes our last little blog of this truly wonderful short-break. Here is Chiang Mai Day #4 Kennett’s Tour. And to be honest we are only showing off two things today, as we had a nice lay in, the usual delicious breakfast, Mary and I had a massage as the kids played in the pool and messed about in the sauna, we had lunch at the hotel which was a free gift. So yes last day was indeed chillax.
One of my customer friends had recommended a restaurant for us to try out. Thank goodness we did. He described this place as the best Mexican food you’ll get outside of Mexico. Have to give that a go, so off we trundle to Miguel’s Cafe, +66 (0) 5387 4148, www.miguels-cafe.com; 106/1 Chaiyaphum Road.
Again, if you happen to be in Chiang Mai, get your self here. Come say Hi to Mark and the lovely staff, and sample the incredible fair on offer. We took James’ advice re some of the must have food choices too, and this is what we had – all for the incredible price of $60. Are you kidding me? Double incredible. I kid you not.
2x large Chang beers;
Strawberry ice cream shake;
Ice lemon tea;
Chain gang bowl of Chili;
Beef Steak Burrito;
Steak in Soft Taco;
Ground Beef in Soft Taco;
Pulled Chicken in Hard Shell Taco; &
A Plain Cheese Quesadilla.
Let me just say it again Miguel’s Cafe charged us about \$60 for all the above on Chiang Mai Day #5 Kennett’s Tour.
Let me just apologise now for the photos. As you can see we’re sitting under blue/green gazebo thing, and it made all the pictures rather blue despite me having a crack to rectify it. It is what it is though – ignore the snaps, and just come eat – I guarantee you will NOT be disappointed – cannot thank James enough for the tip! What a place!
What a dinner. What a price. What a place. It’s a must folks! I have never been to Mexico, but without a shadow of a doubt this was the best Mexican food I have ever sampled in my 49 years!
Nicely full up, we are ready to go shopping at Saturday market. Hot, sweaty, full of tourists, ‘expensive’ in relative terms but cheap cheap in Singapore terms. We bought tonnes of stuff. It is well worth a visit – Night Bazar or Saturday Market.
That is really it, the last post for this holiday. Our last last day was insignificant, lay in, late breakfast, finish packing and bus to airport. No photos, nothing to report for that, hence Chiang Mai Day #5 Kennett’s Tour being the final. Hoping you all enjoyed the insights to the food and fun over our five days, you never know it might give you some tips for a first time trip, or some new things to do if you have been before. We loved Chiang Mai so much, and absolutely plan to come back, and if you get to do some of the things documented, please!
