At Soi Yeonnam Mao, you must absolutely order the Soy Bone Noodle Soup. If you don’t, you’re missing out big time. The pork spine bones are simmered until the meat falls off the bones, making it easy to gently scrape the meat off. It’s tender and soft. After eating about half of it, you can add the chili vinegar and fish sauce to your taste. As you eat, you’ll experience new flavors. It’s like starting over from the beginning. The Bone Noodle Soup is a relatively new menu item. It’s an endless journey of enjoyment. The deep and rich flavor of the soup seems as if the pork was simmered whole. Is this what authentic Thai rice noodle soup tastes like? It’s rich yet light. It’s a taste I’m familiar with, yet it feels new again. The familiarity turning into excitement is truly something.

Here, it’s in line with the Soi Yeonnam vibe in Yeonnam-dong. The difference is the variety of beverages, especially the option of pairing with natural wine. ‘[Mao]’ means ‘drunk’ in Thai. I’m curious about how the flavors of Thai cuisine and the tangy profile of natural wine harmonize. Next time, I’ll have to come in the evening to experience the combination of natural wine. The establishment has an exotic ambiance, yet it’s pleasant. It exudes a somewhat worn feeling but is well-maintained and clean. The atmosphere also slightly changes in the evening. Being around Dosan Park, it’s also a great spot for a date night.
