Chiang Mai On A Stick

No matter where you go in Chiang Mai, you will see people eating food on a stick.  It is amazing what is available to you and how much can be eaten from a stick.  I will be the first to admit, we don’t know what most of this food is.  Nope, we haven’t ventured too far off the familiar path and tasted much of it either.  So let’s take a look at what you will find in Chiang mai on a stick.

Our Tour of Chiang Mai on a Stick

You can get pretty much any food group you like on a stick in Chiang Mai.  There is no shortage of options for what can go on a stick.  It does happen to be very convenient, as it seems everyone is always on the go.  No need to wash utensils or package up the good.  Just hand over that stick and start digging in!

Meats on a stick

First stop on our tour, meats on a stick.  You will find chicken wings, sausage, grilled chicken, pork and all sorts of meat on a stick.  Some of it looks fantastic and others look like the “unknown meat” category.

Fruits on a stick

We take full advantage of the fruit on a stick. It keeps your hands from getting sticky.  It also helps having the stick to pick out that next perfect piece to eat.

Goodies on a stick

This is getting a little crazy!  They even sell donuts on a stick.  Again, it is piratical and keeps your hands from getting sticky, but come on!  Notice the name on the sign “Holething”.  I’m not sure what they are attempting to translate to in English.

Money on a stick

This is the best!  When collecting donations for the Monks, even the money is collected on a stick.

Who knows what’s on the stick?

Then we have the “I don’t know what it is category”.  Sometimes we will be walking around and see food and just wonder “what the heck is that?”  If you know, feel free to mention it below in the comments.

  1. Haha! We are in Chiang Mai as well and love trying to figure out what is on the stick! I’m trying to work up the nerve to try the dried squid on a stick, but we will see…

    • Too funny! Perhaps we will bump into at the Sunday night market tonight. 🙂 I know what the squid on a stick is and I am pretty sure I will stay away from that too.

  2. Holething … you had me laughing with that one! I dunno … maybe they don’t know the word for donut? It sort of looks like one, blanketed with sweet yumminess. 🙂

    • Ha! Thanks so much Linda. We have had fun here the past few months collecting photos for this post. It is a donut as the place is named “Mr. Donut”. LOL

    • Thanks Reni. We have had fun with this one for sure. Thanks for your well wishes. Alan is at the airport now picking up my mom. It should be a great adventure for us all.

Come on and tell us what you think!
