Nimman-side beer deck? Check. Sexy outdoor lounge zone? Check. Cool and intimate dining room? Check. Bar zone? Check. This massively ambitious Korean restaurant and bar goes all out on just about every front. Its open-view kitchen makes its very own tofu and a staggering number of Korean dishes _ bulgogi grilled beef, wine samgyeopsal marinated pork bbq, bibimbap rice, deep fried tofu kangjung, hamul pajun seafood pancake, a mind-boggling array of side dishes and a huge smoothie bar selection, as well as Thai dishes for the less intrepid. If you don’t know Korean food, then this is the place to learn because their menu (more like a booklet) comes with each dish’s recipe so you know exactly what you are getting. And with no copyright restrictions, you can copy a menu or take its picture and even go home and cook it all for yourself. Portions are huge, so don’t let the prices (199-300 baht average) scare you.
The drinks list is comprehensive, ranging from wines (690 baht up) to beers (69 baht up) and spirits, but it is the wonderful selection of soju that is really worth exploring. House sojus are reasonably priced (89 baht a glass), but if you have deeper pockets try the juices of the gods, a.k.a. specialty soju: jook-ryuk-ju bamboo sap or gam-hong-ro honey soju (1,499 baht/300 ml). They may taste like molten honey, but beware, they pack a punch!
Bam7’s lovely Korean owner also has a social conscience; not only does he avoid MSG, he also uses organic rice, makes tofu from organic beans and part of his profits go toward providing clean drinking water to underprivileged children. Awww.
