Khao Soi: The Uniqueness of Northern Thailand

Khao Soi is a deliciously rich, creamy, slightly spicy yellow curry dish originating in Northern Thailand. This classic Northern Thai soup will satisfy your craving for a Thai curry dish combined with tender braised meat (chicken, beef are favorites) in a coconut curry broth with boiled and fried noodles. It’s easy to eat, delicious and can be taken with various vegetable and spices including onion, shallots, coriander, lime and pickled vegetables.


The ingredients including curry paste, coconut milk, turmeric, coriander, and soy sauce, among others are slowly simmered to develop flavor. Tender chicken drumsticks (or beef/pork) is slow cooked in the soup and served as part of the meal.


Khao Soi is traditionally eaten with chopsticks (as noodle dishes are in Thailand) and a large soup spoon.You can find it most anywhere throughout Thailand, but the best can be surely found up north in Chiang Mai at a variety of different restaurants and food stalls.



If you are up for a noodle type curry-ish dish, give it a try. It will likely make the top of your Thai must-eat list!
