Thai Goes...To the Color Green

Thai Goes...To the Color Green

With envy.

Off Road 1.0—

In Chiang Rai Province, at a vintage Thai neighborhood restaurant, one of the regionally-defining dishes of northern Thailand—khao soi—hit the flavor spot for only 30 baht (approximately $1). Crispy egg noodles, boiled egg noodles, a ridiculously tender chicken leg, named and unnamed accoutrements, in a curried broth.


With a serious kick.

Off Road 2.0—

Between Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai sits Suan Charin Bakery-Restaurant. Here, not even the most amazing breeze along the easygoing Mae Lao River could cool my inflamed lips after the shrimp with basil kicked my butt. Thank you, can I have another?


With a nod to the West.

Off Road 3.0

In Chiang Mai, along the bustling, stylish Nimmanhaemin Road, Smoothie Blues (across from a Starbucks Coffee; God help us!) provided a little comfort food in the form of a most terrific BLT-with-avocado. I'd highly recommend the sandwich when you find yourself thoroughly exhausted by the most prominent green in all the land: green curry chicken.


Thai Goes is an ongoing journal from my two-week Doctor of Ministry residency in Chiang Mai, Thailand, in January. The focus of the learning cohort was to experience and study the intersections of faith and global development.
