-Itaewon, Hannam, Seoul, Republic of Korea-

Amazing Thai is a Thai restaurant.

We had discovered the place passing by during our prior Itaewon outing (see 12.305 Fried Mushrooms) and flagged it for a future visit.

Packed upon our arrival, nearly empty by 2000 (1 hour before curfew).

The food was pretty good all around.  I was surprised, pleasantly, by the aggressive seasonings, more authentically Thai, as would be expected at a restaurant located in Itaewon, Seoul’s expat enclave, where the recipes tend not to be watered down to appease local palates.  

The soft-shell crab pieces were huge and crispy and juicy.
