Godam Korean-Chinese Fusion Restaurant

Thanks to recommendations from a couple of readers, I finally managed to try Godam, and have been back a couple of times. Godam specialises in Korean-Chinese food - traditional Chinese dishes with Korean twist.

My favourite at Godam is the fried chicken. I think they probably make some of the best fried chicken in Chiang Mai! The batter is quite mild in flavour, but is served in a couple of ways - with sticky sweet chilli sauce with enough fresh garlic to scare away Dracula; or dipped in a mixture of pepper, salt and sesame seeds. I like both, and you can order half-half of each type. You can also choose between the whole chicken or the chicken wings. About 370 baht for the serving. The picture below shows half a serving. The other half (not shown) has the sweet chill sauce.

Jjamppong Noodles with Seafood - This is a very nice seafood noodles soup flavoured with onions and chilli oil. You'd think though, from the colour that the soup, that it would be very spicy, but it actually isn't. The broth is full of rich, subtle flavours, and I think they must have used a lot of prawns in the stock. The serving is huge!

Jjajangmyeon - noodles with black bean paste. A very nice dish as well. Actually, I just tried a bit as the three of us were very full from the chicken and the seafood noodles soup. The rest I had for dinner the next day, which I thought was even better. The rich sauce is made from roasted soy beans and caramel. I found the flavour a bit unusual to start with, but ended up quite enjoying it. Again, very big serving.

The bill came to a very reasonable 600 baht for 3 people. Actually, two dishes would have been plenty for us. So, if you'd like to try a variety of dishes, it might be better to go with a big group of people!
