Sai ua (Thai: ไส้อั่ว, pronounced [sâj ʔùa]) is a grilled pork sausage from Northern Thailand and Northeastern Burma. In Thailand it is one of the typical foods of the northernmost Mae Hong Son, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai Provinces and it has become very popular in the rest of Thailand as well. Its name in Thai comes from sai (intestine) and from ua (to stuff). In Shan State this sausage is known as Sai long phik and it is sometimes referred to as "Chiang Mai sausage" in English.
Sai ua contains minced pork meat, herbs, spices and kaeng khua red curry paste. It is usually eaten grilled along with sticky rice and other dishes or served as a snack or starter. Traditionally Sai ua was a home-made sausage, but nowadays it is commercialized in some stores.
