    I went to Dae Dong last week with a Korean friend of mine and it was fun having a native there who could explain the ins and outs of Korean food.

    If we ever do the Korean food bit again, I am sure she would enjoy joining in.

        Jake Pine was the other person there. That's me. Dinner was delicious, conversation was lively, I would have posted, but I have a terrible memory for dish names. It is too embarrassing to say "the thingy with the stuff in it" more than once in a review. But suffice it to say most everything was delicious.

        If anybody wants to organize another get-together, I'm game.

          Sorry I forgot your name, Jake. It was a pleasure meeting you. I hope you and your family are all in great shape and spirits.

            Jake..you are funny.You kinda remind me of myself.You should have posted your review,I would have read it. If you guys ever do it again on a friday or saturday night I can come down and join you all. I am up here in CT and have to get up at 6am so I couldn't come down and hangout late with you all. I don't know if I would have been up for Korean but maybe I would have given it a try.

              Ditto - I'm coming to NYC from November 22 - December 5 or 6...and would love to meet some of the NY Hounds...but would also appreciate if someone else could organise, since I'm not there - and I'm pretty easy: so far, I'm free the evenings of Nov 25, 26, 27, Dec 2 and 3...and I love all kinds of food.

              Yeah, but I guess no-one ever posted about it.

              There were 6 people: Me, my friend Andrea, Deven, Maria, Teresa (I think her name was - Columbia student living in the East Village), and...damn, I forgot his name (sorry!)!

              A good time was had by all. The panchan, overall, wasn't quite as interesting as the last time I had gone to Kang Suh, but there was a spicy, uh, I think it was squid with onions and zucchini in a red sauce (can't remember exactly). I also liked the cucumber (?)that came with potent fresh horseradish. We ordered (1) Monkfish moo chim (my dish), which was delicious and hot peppery, though the fish was a bit tough; (2) excellent kalbi; (3) oyster pancakes (nice with some hot sauce); (4) bibimbop (good but somewhat dry); and (5) barbecued slices of pork (I forget the Korean name for them). Everyone seemed to agree that the monkfish was the real knockout. (I must have left out a dish, though.)
