Grilled sausages, shrimp, chicken drumsticks and wings, grilled zucchini, red peppers and eggplant, mussels, grilled flat bread, grilled pineapple, green salad, potato apple salad, a variety of spicy Thai sauces, pasta bake with ricotta and mozzarella cheese, bacon wrapped asparagus, corn=YUM. This is the Thursday barbecue at Chiang Dao Nest.
YUM=Stuffed full after the Chiang Dao Nest Thursday barbecue (you should really try to plan your trip over a Thursday so that you can experience it.)
This was one of the most beautiful meals that I have ever eaten. A traditional Lanna Thai guitar player played in the background, and we were surrounded by candles and soft lighting. A soft evening breeze blew through the open air restaurant. This was a beautiful way to end the day.
The restaurant at Chiang Dao Nest is turned into a magical space, filled with twinkling fairy lights for a celebration unlike any that I have ever attended, where we met new friends and everyone came together to celebrate being together in such a beautiful place.
(Note: Aaron reports that the spicy Thai sauce served at the barbecue was not the spiciest thing that he has ever eaten, but that the spice was still lingering strongly on his tongue after 10 + minutes).
We finished the evening sitting around a camp fire roasting marshmallows, happy and content after a wonderful meal.
