I have never really tried any authentic isaan food! Any of you guys know if there are any restaurants in HH based on Isaan cuisine? And if so, are they any good? thanks

E-San Station on Soi 94 comes to mind - quite pleasant.

There is/was also a very popular place a short distance to the south of San Paulo Hospital and the market. In fact, I think there is a thread on the forum about the place I'm referring to but I wouldn't know where to start looking.

Just 80m South of Market village entrance on the same side, across soi 88/2 from Cool Smile Dental, not my sort of place but Isaan family loved it.

If this is the same place nearly opposite the Artists Village - then I wholly agree - served excellent food for past 3+ years. Busy every lunch time and evening with Thais'

The romanised version of name of the restaurant opp. Artist Village is 'Esan baansuan'. It says that on all the staff's t-shirts.

For Esaan food you need to read Thai or go with a Thai person because otherwise you'll get the farang menu with only the usual papaya salad, fish cakes, tom yam goong, etc. I had good chopped pork intestine fried sweet with minced fried garlic, a very fragrant clear chicken tom yam, and another dish of fried strips of pork which blew my head off. 60 Baht a dish generally. The sticky rice is like superglue, stickiest I had in a long while.
