2. Bangkok Bangjom

Located in Sukhumvit, Bangkok Bangjom is a modest but cosy Korean restaurant. Whilst their menu is relatively small, their cuisine packs a punch. In fact, they serve the best Jajangmyeon (a noodle dish topped with black bean sauce) in town. However, aside from this, their Jjamppong or spicy noodle soup is just as delicious as well as the Jjajangbap, rice mixed with Korean black bean sauce and pork.
