Restaurants & Street Food

EN: Nong Best, Tom Yum Pla Kung

Nong Best is a Thai restaurant located about 500 meters past the highway 1095 traffic lights on the left hand side of the road as you head out of town towards Mae Hong Son. The restaurant itself is nothing to look at.

Plastic tables and chairs arranged in a typical Thai town house configuration much the same as many other similar restaurants. In fact, if you walked past it you wouldn’t give it a second glance.

The thing is, Nong Best has a reputation amongst local Thai’s as one of the “Best” restaurants in Town.
