Visiting Warorot Market in Downtown Chiang Mai for Yummy Yummy Thai Mango Sticky Rice & Chinese Roast Pork

Filed Under (Chiang Mai, Cuisines, North Thailand, Shopping, Travelling, World Souvenirs) by Janet on 31-08-2008

Sunday is finally here today, the day we’re going to Warorot Market to buy our Thai Mango Sticky Rice (called “Kao Neow Ma Maung” in Thai), & hopefully, the Thai Chinese Roast Pork, to bring back home with us to Singapore!

Well, we were initially hessitant about going to Warorot Market as we’d been pre-warned by our Thai friend that it’s not safe for us to be at crowded places here in Chiang Mai, especially in the Night Bazaar & Warorot Market, cos of the current on-going PAD Protest in Thailand against Samak the Prime Minister.

However, we decided that we won’t be that unlucky to get into any harm. Besides, Mom kept reminding me that my hubby Dear is longing for the Mango Sticky Rice back home in Singapore!! Haha!! So our Thai friend, my brother & I, left Mom & Dad to rest in Holiday Inn, while we started our journey downtown Chiang Mai to Warorot Market to buy our Thai Mango Sticky Rice, & hopefully, the Roast Pork heheh!!

And along our way, something happened as we were driving - our car got hit on its left side mirror!!Our Thai friend was driving pretty fast on this road when I think she must be driving too close to the left side of the road & hit one of the cars parked there!!! It all happened so fast our left side mirror must have been hit cos it broke lose & flew off right past infront of my brother’s & my eyes cos we were both seated on the left side of our car!!!

Our Thai friend wasn’t even aware of what happened except got a great shock afterwards!! And we were so lucky we were not hit any closer or else the broken mirror might come flying straight into the left side windows of our car & onto my brother & I!! What a close shave!!!! Thank God!!! Thank God!!!!

Thai Car Incident

Well, here we’ve arrived at Warorot Market, & we’re at this Thai Duck, Chicken & Pork Stall – the same old Stall where the most helpful & kindest Thai Chinese Teochew Auntie brought me to buy the most delicious Chinese Roast Pork here in Warorot Market when I was visiting with my hubby Dear last Dec.

And YES, I’m so happy that this same Duck, Chicken & Pork Stall is open today!! And YES YES, the seller is the previous same Thai lady whom I still remember I bought the Chinese Roast Pork from last Dec!! See she’s smiling at me too & I wonder if she actually still remembers & recognises me?!?!? Haha I’m so excited!!

Warorot Market Thai Duck, Chicken & Pork Stall

Wow, she’s got so many Ducks & Chickens, & even other cuisines like Braised Pork & Pork Intestines etc in her Stall today!! But for Roast Pork…….hmm………she’s got only one piece left!!! Well, it’s a pretty BIG chunk of Roast Pork though that she’s still got left – at 1.2kg. But that’s not even enough to share between Mom & I, who both wana have at least a kg to bring back home to Singapore!!

Like I mentioned in my earlier posts, we all love Chinese Roast Pork!! And yes yes, some of you must be thinking & saying Singapore also has Roast Pork, why wana buy Roast Pork here!?! Well, like I mentioned before, this Thai Chinese Roast Pork which I ate last Dec was so so tasty & good!! And somehow, the Roast Pork from here seemed so much fresher & tasted much more fragrant & better than most ones back home in Singapore!!

Best of all, the Roast Pork here come with fresh sliced Cucumbers & diced Coriander Leaves which when eaten together, the Roast Pork tastes even greater!! And well, my hubby Dear & I just love them so much we always dream of biting into these Thai Chinese Roast Pork again haha!!

So in this trip of mine to Chiang Mai, besides the Mango Sticky Rice, my hubby Dear has also been bugging me to buy the Roast Pork back home for him!! Hahaha isn’t he so greedy ha!!!

Warorot Market Thai Duck, Chicken & Pork Stall

Well, I just bought the only last big chunk of 1.2kg Roast Pork from this Stall & the Thai lady seller is so happy cos guess there’s hardly anybody who would buy such a whole chunk from her any normal day ha?!!! And guess what?! It only costs me 350 bahts, which is equivalent to $15 Singapore dollars - So cheap!! 

And well, persistent & clever me start to look around in her neighbouring Stalls in the Warorot Market hoping to find some more Thai chinese Roast Pork to buy home. And YES YES I did find one more CHUNK!! It’s at the 3rd some kind of Stewed Pork Stall from this Duck, Chicken & Pork Stall, & it’s got also one last piece of 1.25kg Roast Pork left!!!!

Haha the young Thai seller looks stunned & so surprised yet pleasantly smiling that I immediately asked for the whole chunk & paid for it – at 450 bahts!! Well, the Roast Pork here costs a little more expensive but hey it’s but only about $19 Singapore dollars, still pretty okie!! But most importantly, the Thai Chinese Roast Pork is so so yummy you won’t regret eating them!!

Warorot Market Mango Sticky Rice Stall

Well, here’s our next destination in the Warorot Market – the Thai Mango Sticky Rice Stall. But hey, that Thai lady boss is not around today but instead there’re 3 other helpers, & they all look kinda identical with that lady boss, so guess they must all be family :

Warorot Market Mango Sticky Rice Stall

Heheh, we’re now back at this same Mango Sticky Rice Stall where we’d already pre-ordered 15 packs of the desserts 2 days ago when we were here. And as requested by the Stall’s Thai lady boss, our Thai friend has also pre-called her earlier this morning before we came here, to inform her that we’re coming in.

And we actually pre-ordered another extra 13 packs, rounding up to 28 packs of Mango Sticky Rice altogether!! They’re actually my 15 packs & Mom’s 10 packs to bring home to Singapore, & 3 packs for us to salvage later in Holiday Inn haha!! 

Now, below’s the most freshly prepared most fragrant most yummy full of Fresh Coconut Milk aroma Thai Sticky Rice (called “Kao Neow” in Thai), contained in the huge Steel bowl :

Thai Mango Sticky Rice

This Thai Stall actually weighs each & every packet of their Sticky Rice, & so are their Mangoes, which they weigh in order to put the right amount into each pack of their Mango Sticky Rice dessert & the pricing of each & every pack is dependent on their weights.

Here are some of our big & small Thai Mangoes (called “Ma Maung” in Thai) :

Beautiful Thai Mangoes

We requested that the Stall packs all our Mango Sticky Rice desserts into Boxes like this :

And guess what!?!? Actually Mom & I had again re-increased our orders from my very initial 10 to 15 to 20 packs now, & Mom’s initial 5 to 10 to 16 packs, plus our initial 3 to now 4 packs for eating in Holiday Inn, which altogether comes to a grand BIG total of 40 PACKS!!!

40 PACKS of Mango Sticky Rice?!?!!! Hahaa we must be CRAZY CRAZY ha you must be thinking!!! Well, like I say all the time in my earlier posts, this particular Mango Sticky Rice dessert is simply superb that you seldom get to eat elsewhere that we can’t resist not buying more & more……….besides their portions are also not too huge!! OR rather, think we’re just BIG EATERS ha heheh!!!

And in fact, I also told the Stall helper that I would like to buy all her Mangoes that are available in her Stall today, & she’s now confirming it as seen below :
