7 Reasons Why Isaan Food is So Good
Toy Ahan Isaan is located in the Night Bazar Area on the east side of the old city (map link). Its is a cute sized restaurant that is mostly frequented by local Thais.
Isaan is the Northeastern area of Thailand. Isaan-style cooking is famous in Thailand for its more flavorful cuisine. Its more salty, sour and hot than typical Thai food, and served with more chilis, and is almost always accompanied by some kind of grilled meat. Every meal includes a portion of sticky rice that is served in a small bamboo basket. Yum!
