Dancing Shrimps…

Near the hills North of Chiang Mai is a water reservoir that is very popular with the Thai. They love to go there on the weekends and spend their time with friends in one of the many lake-front restaurants, drinking Maekong-Whiskey, doing the karaoke – and eating “dancing shrimps” if they can afford:

These are tiny sweet-water shrimps served alive (goong ten) on a bed of greens. You have to be careful not to lose too many as they have a tendency to jump out of the bowl when you lift the lid.

As to be expected they have a very fresh taste 🙂 I like them…

This is the lake. There is also a very interesting hill tribe museum next to it…

By the way: here it is quite acceptable to eat with your fingers 😉
