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.
Many restaurants have revised their hours and menus due to COVID-19. Some may close, either temporarily or permanently, without notice. Be sure to check this restaurant’s website for updated information before your visit.
Call her what you want – the “cowboy hat lady” or the “lady in the cowboy hat”. She’s out every night at the Chiang Mai Chang Phuak night market near the Chang Phuak (a/k/a Elephant) Gate.
Wearing her signature headpiece and 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.
Khao Kha Moo Chang Phuak is located by the North Gate at Thanon Manee Nop Parat, Amphoe Mueang, Chiang Mai, Thailand.
