After spending our first night at Chiang Mai Mansion, I was ready for the first breakfast with my newlywed wife. I woke up and prepared to find something new to eat. My wife and I went down to the Halal Street Hilal Town just behind the Chiang Mai Mansion. The address for Halal Street Hilal Town is here:
Charoen Prathet 1 Alley, Tambon Chang Moi, Amphoe Mueang Chiang Mai, Chang Wat Chiang Mai.
To be honest, I was not looking for the best Thai food in Chiang Mai on my first morning. Also, the Halal Street is known as Chiang Mai Street Food for Muslims. For anyone who want to try Halal Thai Cuisine, then the right foodie spot is for you the Chiang Mai Halal Street.

We were gallivanting in the Chiang Mai Halal Street to find something to eat for breakfast. We were walking by an open space Thai Muslim restaurant. I was taken-by into the restaurant by the amazing aroma of noodles. I was not sure what kind of noodles are these. On my first look, the noodles were in the creamy white sauce later I found it was coconut milk.
We both sat down, and I just bluntly said; I want those noodles. At that time, I don’t know what I was ordering and how will it taste. It was just blind order; I was preparing for the worst. Because I knew my wife would be mad at me if it doesn’t taste good.
Later a local Thai man told me it’s called Coconut Rice Noodles, which I am eating. You can categorize me as a hardcore noodle lover, but never ever I had tasted the rice noodles with coconut milk. The moment, the coconut milk noodles bowl was on our table, I was ready for it and was surprised by the taste of it.
The coconut milk noodles only cost 50 Batt/ $1.6 USD, which is very affordable, and a lot of locals eat here for breakfast. The Thai coconut rice noodles are considered a staple food in Chiang Mai.
Thai coconut rice noodles made of rice vermicelli, and coconut milk, with drops of fish sauce. You can request them not to put the fish sauce if you are a Vegan traveler in Chiang Mai. The noodle was thick but very soft to chew. The taste of the soup was something between a white cheese pasta and fish curry.
It would be best if you plundered into the noodles to feel the taste of it, which is very hard to describe in words. If you want to try something local best Thai food, then you can’t go wrong with coconut milk noodles. There are also Halal beef noodles in coconut milk for the meat lover out there. I will say Chiang Mai is the best city for Muslim travelers due to a lot of Halal restaurants.
