A little "out of the way" gem of a restaurant in Chiang Mai Mar 13, 2009
The name of this restaurant is The Spirit House, but to those of us who know and love it it's simply "Steve's". Located on Viangbua Road, diagonally across from Viangbua Mansion it's a GEM of a place to eat, relax and enjoy wonderful (non-Thai) music. The restaurant is decorated with hundreds of antiques from Burma and Thailand (all for sale) and has a wonderful little garden area for outside dining or just drinks and munchies. The focal point of the garden is a 700 year old chedi (great photo op!) The owner (of course, Steve) is a wonderful chef, and you just never know what the "daily specials" are going to be. I usually leave what I'm going to eat up to Steve and have never had a bad meal there! ...and I've eaten a lot of his meals. You can get a GREAT eggs Benedict and fresh fruit for a late breakfast...or Steve will even make it for your dinner if your in the mood for "breakfast as dinner" that day. I've enjoyed many a glass of white wine with friends in the garden area and we all go gagaa over his pate! The soups are out of this world, and so is his shirmp with avacado (available when he can get the good fresh ingredients) Or try his deep fried chicken breast with mushroom....Out of this world! The only drawback to Steve's is that on rare moments food service can be a bit slow...but the music and good fellowship make up for it!

This is where I and a most of my farang ex-pat friends go when the urge strikes for "FARANG FOOD"...and a hamburger just won't do it. (you can also get great Thai food here....or a hamburger if you want it!) Next time you have the urge for some great farang food and want to hang with the local ex-pat Chiang Mai crowd please give The Spirit House Restaurant a won't be sorry you did!
