We visited the famous cowboy hat lady in Chiang Mai for some amazing Khao Kha Moo, otherwise known as braised pork leg over rice. Check out our video to enjoy the experience with us.

The cowboy hat lady serves up a mean dish of Khao Kha Moo at the Chang Phuak night market. See why she's one of the best street food vendors in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Khao Kha Moo. Chiang Mai Thailand. Cowboy Hat LadyCall her what you want – the “cowboy hat lady” or the “lady in the cowboy hat”. She’s out every night at Chiang Mai’s Chang Phuak night market near the Chang Phuak (a/k/a Elephant) Gate. Wearing her signature headpiece and a wielding a cleaver, she serves up some of the tastiest food you can eat for 30 baht or just under a dollar. We’re talking succulent stewed pork leg over rice served with an egg and flavorful sides like pickled mustard greens and garlic chili sauce.

Watch our video and see what it’s like to eat Khao Kha Moo at a night market in Chiang Mai.

      We’re still trying to figure out why she wears a cowboy hat. But seriously, the Kha Moo stand in Chiang Mai has to be one of the best street food stands in the world. The food they sell really lives up to the hype!
