Kao Soi Gai (Street Food)

The Chiang Mai Noodles Soup, also known in Thailand as “Kao Soi”, is a handed down heritage by “Hor”, a Chinese tribe living at the border between Thailand and Laos.
Combining coconut milk-richness and a fragrant curry-based broth, this deeply savory soup has now become a synonym with the city of Chiang Mai.
