Labkai Nimman, the first restaurant where I ate in Chiangmai will always be memorable. I liked the food, though it gave me the spiciest taste ever but it gave me memories back home.
|Table and chairs|
The table with a base of a sewing machine reminds me back home where we have similar sewing machine for my mother.
|Sticky Thai rice|
Since I do not eat sticky or brown rice more often in the Philippines because it is a bit expensive; in Chiangmai, I tried to have this available sticky rice. It is not actually brown but a combination of some darker somewhat violet color. It tasted really good.
|Juice and soda|
I ordered water only but this picture shows the ordered drinks for my friends. The left one is a juice that changes into lavender color after pouring a lemon juice while the one on the right is a soda.
Take a look at the food I ordered. It is the best of Labkai, the spicy minced chicken salad in fine china. Veggies will not be forgotten because I was taught to eat veggies sparingly with the too spicy salad. I am used to eating cooked string beans but here it is served raw.

Labkai is located in Nimman Road, just few meters away from the hotel where I stayed. It opens from 10 a.m. and closes at 10 p.m.
