Cowboy Hat Lady Khao Kha Moo Chang Phueak
The Cowboy Hat Lady is a popular food vendor in Chiang Mai, Thailand, who is known for her delicious khao kha moo, a traditional Thai dish of stewed pork leg served with rice.
The Cowboy Hat Lady, whose real name is Noi, can be found at her food stall in the Chang Phueak Market in Chiang Mai. Her stall is easily recognizable by the large cowboy hat that she wears while she cooks and serves her dishes.
Noi’s khao kha moo is widely regarded as some of the best in Chiang Mai, and has attracted a loyal following of locals and tourists alike. The dish consists of a generous portion of tender, flavorful pork leg that has been stewed for several hours in a blend of spices and seasonings. The meat is served on a bed of fluffy white rice, with a side of pickled vegetables and a boiled egg.
Despite her popularity, the Cowboy Hat Lady’s food stall remains a humble affair, with no seating or air conditioning. Customers typically order their food to-go and enjoy it while standing at one of the nearby tables or on the street
Visitors to Chiang Mai looking to experience the local food scene should definitely try the Cowboy Hat Lady’s khao kha moo, which is a delicious and affordable introduction to traditional Thai cuisine.
