In the days when we could barely find dairy products in Chiang Mai – a mere generation ago – Nuan Bakery arrived to woo and wow us with their baked goodies. Hailing from Sukhothai over three decades ago Nuanjan Luechoowong brought her passion for baking to our city and has since expanded her empire to include ten branches.
For many long time locals, when we think of Nuan, we immediately think of those delicious bite-sized soft melt-in-the-mouth éclairs.
Nuan’s offerings have expanded greatly over the years from its humble beginnings and Mother Nuan says that her Taiwanese Pineapple Pie using premium-grade butter blended with preserved pineapples and red salted egg has also become a big hit.
Multigrain cookies are good for the heart and health, combining walnuts, macadamia, almonds and sunflower seeds with a glucose and honey syrup, perfect for eating with a cup of tea or coffee in the mornings or for an afternoon treat.
Another dessert recommended is the nougat, a small square snack bar which is chewy but not sticky and has a taste that is not too sweet. Combining the benefits of whole grains, pistachios, almonds, raisins, cranberries and milk, this is a convenient snack that is delicious as well.
Healthy options abound, so check out the granola with cranberry, dried mango, raisins, oats, pumpkin seeds, sunflower, walnuts and almonds that have been through a long baking process, best tasted with some fresh milk or yoghurt, for healthy bites.
Recently, Nuan Bakery has expanded branches to Hai Nan, China with a new bakery abroad which serves the unique sweetness of Nuan Bakery, continuing the Nuan story, for many years to come.
