Han Joo | Flushing

"Oh gosh, where do I begin?? This place is THE PLACE to go to for samgyupssal and nengmyun. To be honest, I haven't tried anything else on their menu except these two things, but who cares. The prices...

DO Hwa | West Village

"I was here for dinner on two occasions last month and I brought a few of my friends who have 1.) never tried korean food; 2.) very eclectic and refined palates. So you can imagine, I was taking something of a risk in...

Sik Gaek | Woodside

"Great place to eat. The food will impress you, especially the living lobster that gets cooked in front of you. The food taste is excellent too."

Cho Dang Gol | Midtown

"Cho Dang Gol is awesome. I really think their spicy tofu stew (sundubu jjigae) is better than BCD's. Their ingredients are fresh, and their tofu...

Arang | Koreatown

"Late night snack in ktown is the best! We came after ASOT 600 at msg, hungry and ready to devour everything Arang can offer. My buddy ordered the cheese dukbokki with calamari (legit korean lasagna!!), bulgogi, gyoza, and...

Myung San | Flushing

"Man, these ladies can really cook..."

Danji | Hell's Kitchen

"Simply outstanding. When food and drink can make you feel "high" you know that you've come to food heaven. Quick food thought: the chef, incorporates the old country with the new. The "shigol ddeng jang ji gae" is not for...

Hanjan | Flatiron District

"This was the best surprise addition to Flatiron. Surrounded by BBQ, this little gem hits the spot! There really isn't a bad menu item, but don't leave without..."

Mapo BBQ | Murray Hill (Queens)

"Great Selection of Banchan. Small Cozy Restaurant in Queens, Predominantly Local Koreans (Good Sign) Not that much room but looks bigger due to Window wall. No room for Reservations, Just come in and be prepared to wait...
