Back to where it began. 

Ekkamai’s much-loved Northern-Thai diner, Hom Duan, has expanded to Chiang Mai city.

Meaning ‘‘peppermint’’ in the Northern dialogue, Hom Duan is known for its lip-smacking khao soi, luscious gaeng hang lay and spicy sai oua—all made in-house from scratch.

This new addition is set in an American-style country house with plenty of white paint and a spacious balcony that extends out over a courtyard all surrounded by fairy lights.

A coffee shop lies within a glasshouse at the front of the building, where there is a long stool bar that makes the perfect place for guests to wash down heavy meals with refreshing drinks and desserts.
