Another famous dish that attracts a number of food lovers to Northern Thai dishes is "Sai Ua." Sai Ua is a spicy minched pork sausage grilled over a smoky coconut husk fire.
Northern Thais have their own dialect in calling meals differently from central Thai people. The breakfast is called "khao gnai," usually comes with sticky rice and other simple dishes like chilli paste and gaeng. The steamed glutinous rice will be cooked in the early morning and packed in a small wicker basket made from bamboo or palm leaves.
Khan toke, made of wood and some times brass, depending on the economic status of a family, consists of small cups holding a variety of northern Thai food. Served along with khan toke are sticky rice, fresh and cooked vegetable to eat with chili pastes, Sai Ua, and curry/soup like gaeng kae or gaeng hang-le.
