DDD 45 (now closed)

Here is one of my favourite dim sum/yum cha places. It's owned by a chef from Shangri-La Hotel. They make great roast duck (one of the best I've had in Chiang Mai!), some basic but very nice dim sum dishes eg. prawn dumplings, BBQ pork buns, Cream buns, etc.

Just an aside - the steamed dim sum dishes are great, however, the fried dishes (eg spring rolls or taro dumpling) are only fried in the morning, so they get cold by lunch time - not great...but would be alright in the morning, I think.

The roast duck at DDD 45 is lovely, and unlike many other restaurants, the meat is tasty. The sauce though, is slightly sweet. I don't have photos of the roast duck here, but the roast duck noodles are especially delicious!

Below is the photo of crispy pork rice. The sauce is the same as duck sauce. You can help yourselves to the two different types of chillis! The one on the left is a kind of preserved chilli in vinegar (very nice!), but my favourite is the sauce on the right, which I think contains garlic, shallots and soy bean paste, amongst other ingredients. It has a spicy and kind of nutty flavour. This sauce is so amazing I can just eat it by itself! Hmm may be I should have focused the camera on the sauce, not the rice!

The BBQ Pork Egg Noodles are lovely too, flavoured by the versatile duck gravy.

The prices are pretty reasonable too. The dim sum dishes are 25 baht, and the rice and noodle dishes, 35 baht. Not bad!
