Boat Bakery has been serving up one-dish meals and a boatload of baked goodies since the early eighties. In fact, it was THE destination in those days for hanging out on weekends and after school for so many students in those days.
This open-aired restaurant sits on Huay Kaew Road and was one of the first, and certainly most long lasting, businesses in front of Chiang Mai University. When Boat Bakery opened – to much fanfare, we may add, admitting how old we are! – they sold cakes, cookies and delicious rice and noodle dishes (our favourite was always the fried chicken on rice) and it became the instant place to be seen by the cool and the young in the eighties.
Nothing much has changed over the years, which makes for a charming slice of nostalgia for anyone wanting to recall the gentler days of Chiang Mai.
