Khang Rong Nhang
For a truly unique and highly affordable lunchtime outing, don’t miss this delightfully strange little restaurant. From the street you’ll see a barn-like building, with two open doors. One features what looks like an American soda fountain circa 1950, with an array of old candies and red gumball machines. The larger opening reveals a glass case filled with a mouth-watering array of pre-made Northern Thai specialties, from rich and savoury hung-lay curry with pork to spicy nam prik served with boiled vegetables and rice, sticky or steamed. Sit at one of the long cafeteria tables surrounded by a mind-boggling collection of retro items and decor from the 60s and 70s. To enter Khang Rong Nhang is to take a mini trip back in time, where you will see everything from brill cream to laundry detergent to telephones, lined up in clear glass cases along the walls of the ramshackle wooden building with posters of stars of yore adorning the walls. Come for the novelty, stay for the food.
