Jim Jum is the Isaan version of the hot pot. It’s served in a clay pot over charcoal.

The broth is normally pork or seafood based and you’re given a selection of ingredients to add to the boiling soup; Morning glory, cabbage, glass noodles, meat or seafood, and egg, are all popular additives to a pot of jim jum จิ้มจุ่ม.

Overall it’s a pretty healthy Thai food since it includes lots of vegetables!

    Hi Abraham, thanks for writing. Well, JimJum usually is sold in that kind of a situation, one where you will sort of have to follow your nose. That’s how we always did it in the early days of Bangkok street-food-hunting, I haven’t been to Lumpini park in awhile but Im sure if you walk around the area (and ask for JimJum), people will be happy to point you in the right direction.

      They are all over the place after dark – Sukhumvit, Silom, both sides of the Chao Phraya. In fact I am struggling to think of an area where you can’t find it.
