Nong Bee's Burmese


Cheap Burmese food. I had the tamarind leaf salad which was fresh and delicious, the egg plant curry which was nice but nothing special and some rice all for 70B.

"As wonderful as the intense spices and meats of Chiang Mai can be, sometimes you need a break. We discovered the no-frills Burmese Restaurant and Library (there is no library) in one of those moments. Aon, the laconic Shan-Burmese owner, is at the wok every day, juggling dishes in the glow of the 7-11 convenience store. We loved the tealeaf and tamarind salads, came back for the eggplant curry and topped it off with Shan-style tomato fish rice. There are meat dishes too: its beef and potatoes is a simple pleasure of a plate."
