We'll gather at our shop near Chiang Mai Gate at 4:30pm for a 5pm departure. We promise that there will be something tasty for everyone to eat. Vegetarians are welcome. Come cycle with us to discover authentic Thai cuisine on this unique food tour.
The cycling is easy, the food delicious and with a genuine connection other local culinary boys of Chiang Mai. Meandering the small lanes throughout the old city and beyond to visit some of the city's best-kept dining secrets.
Tha Phae Historic Stop
On the way towards the old city’s eastern gate, we'll cycle through the city’s quaint lanes. Tha Phae gate was once the entrance through which traders brought their wares into the city. At this beautifully restored gate learn about Chiang Mai's old city walls and history.
Three Kings Monument
After the Thapae Gate, we'll cycle to the Three Kings monument before Lert Ros restaurant because it's still a bit too early for the main dishes dish.
This place is not easy to find tucked away in the old city. The restaurant and owners have been serving locals for over 35 years, it will give you the real Thai experience. The open-air kitchen and barbecue in front of the restaurant will have your mouth watering with anticipation as Red Tilapia, seafood and banana leaf wrapped mince pork with red curry ( Ab - Mhoo ) smoke away, complimented by a palate cleasing Som Tam, (papaya salad) and morning glory.
The Swan, Shan Cuisine
Yes, we are eating a Burmese dish in Thailand! Northern Thailand's connection with Shan, Hilltribe people of Burma is long and eventful. Located just outside the old city, this restaurants' food is bursting with flavour, it's only one dish but Pickled Tea leaf salad is truly unique and worth the stop! It tastes like an incredible homemade meal with love.
Tha Phae Pad Thai
What is a trip to Thailand without a pad thai? How did this classic become the global Thai standard? Here we will sample the various different forms of pad thai, yes, there is more than one. The original name of Pad Thai is ‘Gway Teow Pad Thai'Gway Teow is a Chinese word for ‘rice noodles’, which hints at a Chinese influence. Thailand suffered a rice shortage due to the war and floods, so to reduce domestic rice consumption the Thai Prime Minister, Plaek Phibunsongkhram, promoted eating noodles instead and Pad Thai was born.
The first thing that stands out at this very local sweet stop is the vibrant colours of the nearly 40 different dessert ingredients, next is the constant flow of Thais stopping in for a sweet treat. The whole restaurant is an experience in colour, excitement, unique flavours and sugary fun.
Warorot Market (or Kad Luang) is a must-visit for food lovers as it offers a wide range of ready-to-eat meals, local snacks and all kinds of fresh produce. Wander the market as your guide talks about the different goods on offer. Targeting mostly Thais, Warorot Market is a great place to get a feel for the local way of life. Be ready for some fruit and snacks you may never have seen or tasted before.
Gallery & Gastro Bar
Our final stop for the night is a favourite hidden gem - Down a quiet soi in the heart of the old city sits this charming lush garden dripping with ferns and vines and decorated with terracotta Khmer motifs and sculptures of Angkorian style. It's a green oasis under a canopy of trees, with trickling fountains and lots and lots of Khmer faces peeking from behind foliage. A great place to conclude the tour and enjoy a cold refreshing local beer or herbal drink while you reflect on your food adventure.
We'll ride back to the shop at the conclusion of the tour, full and happy.

We headed out by bike to explore the city! It was fantastic. We went to several restaurants and sampled many dishes! Plenty of tasty food! More than I normally eat for dinner. A bargain! Must do while in Chiang Mai! Aimy and Boy are super knowledgeable guides. I highly recommend it!
We had a wonderful experience with Noi and Grasshopper Tours in Chiang Mai. Noi is a wonderful and extremely learned guide who is warm, friendly and funny! He regaled us with so many facts and trivia, and told us so much about the country and people. The food stops were incredible, and the biking around town was lovely. Noi went out of his way to find us a cab and coordinate over the phone because of the language barrier. All in all, an excellent time! We highly recommend to everyone!
We had a great tour with our beloved two guides. It was an amazing time. We learned a lot about the city from Ms. Aom and Mr. James. They knew a lot and were very friendly. There were many food tasting choices around town, including local food, Burmese food, famous Pad Thai and local sweets.Thank you very much Ms. Aom and Mr. James for being so much fun!!!! We really enjoyed ourselves.
