A royal snack

Bamboo rice is true local delicacy. When the Thai king visited Lampang 60 years ago, he was served one of these fresh green.

Peeling technique

How to graciously eat this wonderful snack? Break the bamboo in two then carefully peel into a fan of thin strips. Mrs. Janta Kruainta’s bamboo rice comes in two sizes: small (THB 25) or large (THB 50).
