Anyway, he told me about another place that he thought was better than My Thai - - Yum Thai! Really, Yum Thai? I can't imagine it being any better than My Thai, because My Thai is pretty darn authentic. This is when he told me that the chef from My Thai worked with the chef from Yum Thai to develop his menu. He also told me that the Yum Thai chef travels to Thailand every few months to get ingredients. I was totally sold so I grabbed a bunch of friends and headed out to have a little Thai food.
Singha is the only way to start a Thai meal.
We also ordered spring rolls (no pictures...) and crab balls (pictured below) I don't remember eating crab balls in Thailand, but they were AMAZING here in Seoul!
Sorry for the blurry picture, but Buddy was moving them towards is mouth as I was trying to snap a shot!
I had to stop several times for my mouth to cool.
My mouth is watering just looking at it.
It had the perfect amount of FRESH galangal & lemon grass.
I was instantly taken back to Thailand.
Not the picture.
Blurry picture again.
(Why do I feel compelled to point out the blurry pictures? Maybe because I was totally off this night? Who knows. Did I mention I fell in a hole? True story. No, I had not been drinking.)
But I guess that is asking for a little too much. :o)
Sinsa Station - Exit 1
Walk straight for 4 blocks (I'm counting all cross streets as blocks!)
After the 4th street look to your right and you will see Yum Thai on your right.
(A big tower name J-Tower is on the left side of the street directly across from Yum Thai.)
They accept reservations
When we went (Saturday night 7PM) the place was PACKED and on a wait - I was thankful we made reservations!
