Your New Place To Have Lunch...

There's a restaurant opposite the Wolfhound in Itaewon that I've been curious about for sometime. Whenever I've walked past Mam Ma it has always been empty, a sad little bistro with no customers. Today I decided to pluck up some courage and have lunch there.

Mam Ma Bistro

The interior feels like a cross between a log cabin and a bar, but the owner/chef is friendly enough and it turns out that until March this year she had spent the past seven years working as the chef at Gecko's Terrace/Bonji's Bistro.

I went for the lunch special: Thai style noodles for 7,000 won. A choice of chicken or beef... I chose chicken.

The large dish of spicy Thai goodness was definitely worth the price. The chicken was perfectly tender, the vegetables were nicely crunchy and the chili didn't overpower this slightly sweet noodle dish too much. A filling lunchtime treat if you happen to be in the area.

If you happen to be in Itaewon and have a belly that needs filling why not try out this newcomer and take advantage of some of the lowest prices for lunch in the area. Cheap eats, good service and Alley Kat beer on tap. Who could ask for more? To get to Mam Ma head down the alley directly opposite Taco Bell, Mam Ma is on the left hand side just past Jonny Dumpling. Give them a call on 02 798 5930.
