This is my favorite soup stand in all of Chiang Mai (located at the Southern Gate of the Old City, at the top of Wua Lai street). She has 16 different soups on the menu, each individually prepared to order and a staff to deliver the soups to the tables and handle the money.

She won’t be rushed. It takes 4+ minutes to prepare a bowl of soup - even when there is a line of customers. In the photo you can see the freshly steeped egg noodles being placed into a bowl. English is very limited at this stand, so if you don’t know much Thai, just point to the menu item, take a seat, and wait patiently for your soup.

Pork, wontons and egg noodle soup. The thin egg noodles are in a mound under the pork and vegetables. $1.20 a bowl and the taste is out of this world delicious.
