  • Hi Tes, Sorry to annoy you (again), however I was hoping you could tell me about a rice dish I tried here in Chiang Mai. I tasted it at the Chiang Mai International Food festival, I think at the Northern Thai display. It was very simple and looked just like steamed rice with some type of brownish (not hot)spice? or herb mixed in. Nothing else that I could see.

    The staff couldn’t explain what it was in English and the only thing we ‘think’ we understood was the word ‘elephant’…however I suspect the young boy was having a joke with us 😉 It kind of had a nutty flavour, any ideas?


  • PS. it wasn’t sticky…just sitting loosley in a bamboo tray.

    • Tes

      Hi Snap, Sorry for replying this so late, We’re just back from the trip. I am not sure which rice dish you are talking about? Could you give me more detail about it? It is like coconut flavoured rice wrapped in Bamboo or coconut leaves with sweet and spicy shrimp topping? I will check this out and get back to you again later 🙂
      Take care,

  • Hi Tes, no it wasn’t khao laam (????????) and had no other ingredients, other than a brownish nutty spice (mild as in nutmeg, or cinnamon, but not the same taste) in it, that I could see. It wasn’t sticky, more like the consistancy of steamed or fried rice perhaps. I’ve only ever seen it this one time.

    • Tes

      Hi Snap, Sorry but I really have no idea which dish you are referring to. Though I suspect it is some type of “Sang Kaya”, coconut rice with savoury topping. I wish you have the picture of it so I could pass it around and ask friends in Thailand.

      • ggrrrrr…I could kick myself for not taking a photo, or returning the next day to buy some. By the sound of sang kaya, I don’t think it’s the same. I’ll keep asking/looking and if I find out I’ll let you know. Thanks so much for trying though!

  • Sorry about the ?????? this comment box doesn’t take very kindly to Thai writing 🙁

    Hi Tes,

    Some years ago, we, me and my partner, stayed in Bangkok for almost 2 years. My partner, an European, lived on what he called, ‘white noodles’ and ‘brown noodles’ alternate days for those many days. Unbelievable but so true 🙂 I am trying out the Thai dishes here because luckily we are getting kale, morning glory, nam pla and other ingredients in Pune. Any place you’d recommend for getting those 1 inch flat rice noodles in Pune?
    Thanks in advance.

    • Tes

      Oh my God, where do you get Morning Glory? And also do you know a place I can get Pandan Leaves? Usually I use Real Thai Brand flat noodle for that. It’s about 1/2 inch and when cooked, it gets a bit wider… but it works well in the recipes 🙂

  • Hi. I am writing a post about cooking with edible flowers. I’d like to include photos I have collected and added to my pinterest board, with proper accreditation and link to original blog. May I please use your photo for your Alhoa Thai treats and link to your blog post? Please let me know asap. Thanks.
