Eats ‘n Treats in Chiang Mai, Thailand
This is the Cowboy Hat Lady made famous in North America by a segment of Anthony Bourdain (CNN) in Chiang Mai (you can google the episode). She serves Khao Kha Moo - slow cooked pork leg at a night food market. She has been doing this for years. One day she wore a hat to shield her eyes from the light - it is now her signature. The stewed pork leg is served on rice with a hard boiled egg. There is a sour chili sauce and pickled mustard greens (on the table) to finish the dish. We had a side of fried bamboo shoots. With beer the total cost was less than $10. The stewed pork leg reminded us of pulled pork. Yummy!
