Lum Lum Korean & Thai Restaurant


I love Korean Food. I became a Korean Food addict, surprisingly, in Beijing. I had a lot of Korean friends and often enjoyed Korean food with them. 

I was really happy to find out that a new Korean Restaurant opened near our office at Meechok Plaza (where the Rimping Supermarket is on the Middle Ring Road, on the way to Mae Jo). Actually, "new" as in quite a while ago, but I haven't gotten around to doing a review yet. So, without further ado, I would like to present  "Lum Lum Restaurant". 

Lum Lum is a cheerful little restaurant serving great Korean and Thai dishes. The good sign is that a lot of local Korean expats are regulars, and one of the owners is Korean. 

Amongst my favourite Lum Lum dishes are: Kimchi Soup (beautiful!), Deep fried Chicken Wings in Korean Chilli Sauce (a must try, but unfortunately they've been out of it the last couple of times we went). 

Last time we went, we had a Korean Khao Soy (spicy seafood noodle soup). Beautiful!

Korean Style Katsu Don. Katsu Don (Deep fried pork with rice) is a typical Japanese dish, but the Katsu Don at Lum Lum has a Korean twist - a very nice spicy sauce on top. Yum!


You're not at a Korean Restaurant if you are not served the little cold dishes (often complementary, but these were about 40 or 50 baht for the set at Lum Lum).


And a Thai dish - just to try it out. Stir Fried Chinese Broccoli with rice. Nice.

We also had an egg-roll dish, which was very nice. 

For 3 people, it came to a very reasonable 300 baht. Great value and we were all very full! 

If you are in the area, I'd highly recommend this great little restaurant!

Hi,

I read your comment and it's great. I like Kimchi a lot and I have tried that restaurant. It's nice too for the food and the price. However, I tried one Korean restaurant here in Chiangmai and this one owns and operate by Koreans. Anyway, the name is (I guess) Han Sa Rang or Ban Kaolee. The food is fine and the price is good. I am not sure if you have tried this one but would like to read your comment. The website is http://www.kcccm.com. Will be nice if you can comment on this one.

Thks,
Tee

Hi, reading about Korean food always make me droooool...
Lum Lum has been renovated (May 2010) and with this their menu has changed!!! No more chicken wings e.g. The menu is shorter and LL serves only Korean food (no Thai or Thai inspired)

But there are many other Korean restaurants. Try MISO, same street as the Korean center (kccc.com)

Hi So..Thanks for your comment. I think Lum Lum still has the chicken wings, at least they had them when I was there not too long ago, and their BBQ is great!

Miso sounds interesting. Will check it out one day!
