âThailandâ is rich in food resources such as seafood, meat, fruits, and grains, thanks to its fertile land, warm temperatures, and a blessed natural environment surrounded by the sea on three sides. Combining this with the developed spice culture, Thai cuisine is considered one of the world's delicacies. Although the spices are strong, the balance of flavors such as saltiness, sweetness, sourness, and spiciness is perfect, and even though it's âthe first taste I've eaten since I was born,â it is a great fit for Korean tastes.
Just as Seoul, Jeolla, and Gyeongsang have different flavors even with the same kimchi, the taste of food in Thailand also varies slightly from region to region. With the boom in Thai food, more and more restaurants in Korea are offering flavors unique to each region of Thailand. Why don't you go to Thailand in Korea this year to experience the subtle differences in taste?

1. The fastest way to Thailand, tree-lined street âMadam Thaiâ
An Asian restaurant located on the 2nd floor of Garosu-gil Alley. The interior, which looks like it came from a Southeast Asian restaurant, stands out by placing plants such as ceiling fans and palm trees in a bright room with sunlight pouring in through glass windows. The signature âMadame Spicy Meat Noodleâ is a rice noodle that emphasizes the spiciness of Madam meat noodles by adding a sauce made with pepper, Japanese pepper, Japanese pepper, and peanuts. Compared to the color of the soup, it's nice that it's not as spicy as I thought. You can also add shredded papaya and bean sprouts mixed with fish sauce to refresh your mouth.
â²Location: 55, Nonhyeon-ro 151-gil, Gangnam-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: 11:30 – 21:00 every day (BÂ·T 15:00 – 17:30)

â²Testimonial (Dietary Calorie-Destroyer): The food is so fresh and delicious! I scraped all the way to the bottom of the bowl… I like coriander, but I was satisfied because they gave me lots of coriander! The view from the window seat is really nice and the sense of openness is great.
2. Authentic Thai flavors cooked by Thai owner-chef, Haebangchon âPhat Ka Pauâ
Even in Haebangchon, it is located high on a hill, so the journey up to the top is difficult, but it's a place you'll completely forget when you enjoy your meal while sitting at a table in front of the window watching the sunset. If you look forward to seeing the Thai owner-chef cook their own food, you'll be served right away. The signature âPat Ka Pauâ is a Thai-style rice bowl made by stir-frying various meats and Thai basil in a spicy way and topped with fried eggs, and it fits our tastes very well. I also recommend âYum Wun Sen,â a sweet and sour mung bean noodle salad made with seafood, ground pork, and vegetables.
â²Location: 97-6, Sinheung-ro, Yongsan-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: Every day 12:00 – 21:00 (BÂ·T 15:00 – 17:00), closed on the 2nd and 4th Monday and Sunday

â²Testimonial (Shikigami Daily Gourmet Party): It was a weekday, but I had to wait a bit because there was a wait. The boss is very kind and the food is clean and delicious!!! It was a little spicy, but it was delicious, and the pawka paw was delicious. I'd like to try pad thai next time too!
3. âMaha Chai,â the sacred water of a Thai night market that has not lost both value for money and flavor
I started this restaurant because I wanted to introduce the Thai food I enjoyed at the Bangkok Night Market during my trip to Thailand. You can enjoy various Thai cuisines along with Thai beer. It is famous for its good value for money, and most of the meal menus cost around 10,000 won. âOmelette pad thai,â made by putting pad thai between soft egg omelets, is popular for its banseo-like appearance. It is also attractive that you can choose a place close to the Seoul Forest branch near the main store to visit.
â²Location: 399 Ttukseom-ro, Seongdong-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: Weekdays 11:00-21:00 (BÂ·T 15:30 – 17:00), weekends 11:30 – 21:00
â²Price: Sum Sweat 8500 won, beef rice noodles 8500 won, omelette pad thai 11,500 won
â²Testimonial (For those staying in Shikigin Thai): I was very satisfied with the omelette pad thai, but the slightly sweet flavor was strong. There are places where every menu has the same flavor, so there are times when you get tired of it, but it's nice to feel unique here. Good thing that the amount is good for the price
4. A hearty meal with pork ribs and rice noodles, the triangular âSong Thai Chiang Maiâ
The restaurant's colorful, pristine interior and Thai-style objects make you feel like you've come to Thailand. The signature âWanggalbi Rice Noodleâ is a Thai-style rice noodle that can be enjoyed generously with large ribs on top, and the dark-colored broth made by mixing about 20 kinds of ingredients along with beef bones has a refreshing yet deep flavor. âChum yum noodle soup,â which is made based on chum yum, which has an impressive sour acidity, is addictive with its spicy aftertaste. Another advantage is that you can change to rice if you wish.

â²Business hours: 11:30 – 21:20 every day (BÂ·T 15:00 – 16:30)

5. Thai cuisine enjoyed with wine, 'Tal' in Apgujeong
A restaurant that mainly serves cuisine from the Isan region in northeastern Thailand. Whereas regular Thai restaurants serve Thai beer, this place is unique in that it marries wine. The interior is modern yet nuanced, and the slightly lower light enhances the wine-drinking atmosphere. A variety of dishes are available, including the âTartal Hailong Rice Noodleâ, which contains plenty of thick meat. âFried gongsimchae,â which uses fresh gongsimchae, is a side dish you can't miss.
â²Location: 27 Seolleung-ro 155-gil, Gangnam-gu, Seoul

â²Testimonial (Queen of Eating and Drinking): The terrace is so beautiful. The wine was also kindly recommended, and it was really nice to have fried rice and pork ribs on the terrace and served it with the wine. The price is also very reasonable in Apgujeong, so I like it.
