Well, I have heard about Yum Yum simply watching some commercials at the movie Theaters in Times Square. This is a small Thai place with low light setting and loud music in the evening, setting this place apart from most of the Thai restaurants in the area. The food there is good, with reasonable prices. We ended up there after a movie in fact, looking for a place in Hell's Kitchen. The place was packed for sure and the staff extremely busy. 

To start our meal, we decided to share some Spring rolls that were made of crispy rice paper wrapped around a mix of clear noodle, taro and vegetables, and served with sweet chili sauce. It was good, crispy and not too greasy, with a shell not too thick.

For her entree, Jodi went for pad see ew (Pad Sie Eil on the menu), these wide rice noodles that she most of the time orders. It was served with tofu, broccoli and egg in a soy sauce. I liked that dish that had a nice sweetness.

On my side, to accompany my meal, I decided to order a Thai iced tea, my usual beverage in a Thai restaurant.

It was quite good and refreshing, perfect to counterbalance the heat of the chicken curry massaman I ordered. Served with rice, it was quite good, with a nice kick. I appreciated the fact that there was not too much potato in it, and a nice amount of curry.

The food at Yum Yum Bangkok was quite good and not expensive at all. It is a fine place if you'd like a quick classic Thai place, but I have to say that I was not wowed by it. There are so many places in the area with more interesting menus such as Thai Select or the more classic Chili Thai close by, that I am not sure I would go back...

Enjoy (I did)!
