Enjoy Chiang Mai’s Thai dishes use a range of different ingredients, but most of their signature dishes, like you would expect in their land of origin, include something plucked from the ocean. First served (in no particular order) were the Prawn Cakes (金钱虾饼, 58RMB), cooked fresh and with a very meaty prawn mash making up the centre and served with a side of sweet chilli dipping sauce. Next was their Tom Yam Soup (冬荫功汤, 78RMB), which was more tomato-y than spicy and had a handful of prawns and veg thrown in. It could be shared as an appetizer by a small group.
The Mango and Shrimp Wraps (香芒明虾米纸, 48RMB) were extremely refreshing and had a light sauce; the combination of shrimp, shredded mango and salad was a nice change from the usual fare.
As for the more substantially sized dishes, their signature is the Curried Crab (招牌咖喱炒蟹, 198RMB), a whole crab generously covered in their thick curry sauce. Eat the crab, then request a couple of servings of rice to chuck in and finish off the remaining sauce.
For those of you who prefer getting your hands dirty, the Fish Vegetable Wrap (清迈菜包鱼, 88RMB) maybe more your thing. Sliced pieces of fish, to be dipped in spices and sauces and placed in a lettuce wrap with your selection of vegetables. For people wishing to steer clear of the fishy dishes, the Roast Chicken (泰式烤鸡, 58RMB) was good – a half chicken cooked in their mild curry sauce and served with dipping sauce.
If you are looking for something sweet to top off your meal, a selection of Thai-style desserts is available. The Cake Plate (甜品拼盘, 48RMB) contains four different types of coconut based treats for you to sample. The range of drinks is good, but I would recommend a bottle of Singha Beer (泰国胜狮, 26RMB) or one of their super-refreshing Coconuts (椰青, 26RMB) for the more health-conscious.
Menus here are in Chinese, but most of their signature dishes (mentioned above) are pictured, so ordering should be easy. Enjoy Chiang Mai is located on the 2nd floor of Xixi InCity, but for those further east another branch is located in Binjiang. Underground parking available, smoking not permitted.
