Introducing Krappom (ครับผม), a Thai restaurant located in the Sinsadong neighborhood in the upscale area of Gangnam, Seoul. It takes roughly an hour to get there from the YG Entertainment building in Mapo, Seoul.
They serve a variety of Thai dishes ranging from noodles to fried rice and soup.
The authenticity of the food was verified by Lisa and the BABYMONSTER members in Chiquita’s newly released introduction video. The former made sure to confirm with the younger singers that it is “the taste [they] had in Thailand.”
If you ever decide to dine in, you can rest assured that you will be given generous portions of each dish!
Krappom was started by a Korean owner and Thai head chef Khun Tum. It is beloved for its authentic food and atmosphere.
It is so popular, it was even featured on SBS‘s variety show Running Man with STARSHIP Entertainment girl group IVE as special guests.
According to Tum, its customers are primarily made up of “50% Korean, 30% Chinese, and 20% Thai people.”
They often reference Lisa and other K-Pop stars who dine there on their social media pages. Their latest post of gratitude was towards her and the BABYMONSTER members.
