One of my favorite restaurants in Chiang Mai is Angel’s Secrets, located in the old city 27 Moonmueang, Soi 5. The sign above the door says it all: “Budget Gourmet Cuisine”. There must be well over a hundred items on the menu, so making a choice is no easy feat. Over the years, I’ve tried numerous dishes; sometimes choosing western and sometimes Thai. Everything I’ve tried has been outstanding!
Closed on Mondays!
I can’t show you the inside (because I took this shot today, Monday, when I was walking by), but I promise it is as cute and comfortable as the outside.
I just noticed that they serve homemade ice cream! I’ll be trying that next time!!
On a recent visit I was yearning for some good Thai food, and after much indecision, I decided on the Massaman Curry (vegetarian) served with homemade French crepes. How different is that? I was not disappointed! The curry was cooked to perfection; just a bit sweet. The homemade crepes were a perfect complement. The fresh vegetables on the side were a very nice touch. Everything is fresh, fresh, fresh, and the presentation is always picture perfect. For anyone who doesn’t like spicy food, Massman curry is an excellent choice!
This is the second massaman/mussaman curry dish I have featured since I’ve been in Chiang Mai. I’m honestly not sure of the correct spelling. I have seen it spelt both massaman and mussaman, depending on the restaurant! If you missed the previous post, you can find it here.
This is an easy curry to make at home. Vegetarian Massaman Curry . (This recipe calls for seitan. I had no idea what that is. A bit of research told me that it’s “wheat gluten”. Personally, I think I would use firm tofu instead. Angel’s Secrets definitely used tofu in their recipe.
Open Tuesday to Saturday 7am – 4pm; (closed Monday)/Phone: 089-560-0956
