Do you live in Korea and miss authentic Thai food? SoCal is lucky to have many good Thai food restaurants, so it naturally became one of my favorite cuisines. But Thai food in Seoul seems to be a hit and miss. I get super excited when I find one with some delicious Pad Thai.
I know one popular, hole-in-the-wall Thai food restaurant in 이태원 (Itaewon, Kkaolli Pochana), but that place could be a challenge to order for non-native Korean speakers, or uncomfortable for those who are sensitive to cleanliness. So today, I’ll introduce Yummy Thai, which is equally delicious but cleaner, cuter, and foreigner-friendly!
Most of the main dishes are 10,000 ~ 15,000 KRW.
The color scheme was based on the flag of Thailand!
The owner helped me practice my Korean with some small talk, and we talked to the Thai cook in English.
These flowers were not fake! haha
What we ordered
Chicken Pad Thai and Shrimp Pad See Ew (both 12,000 KRW)
These were some condiments for the Pad See Ew.
Shrimp chips with some sweet chili sauce,
pickles, soup, milk pudding with fruits
Line 4: Sookmyung Women’s University Station. After you climb the stairs of exit 3, you will see it on your right within five seconds.
There is a lively college town on the other side of the station.
Talking about Thai food makes me want to go to Thailand even more. Hopefully soon!
What is your favorite Thai food?
