Best Korean Food??
Hey everyone, I am new here but it looks like you all have really good information. SO, here is my situation, we are coming to NYC for a week in April and my husband is Korean. We live in Maine, he never gets Korean food so I want to go to the best place in NYC. Actually, we want to know the best place for a more "upscale" Korean place for like a special dinner, then maybe just a korean place that is more casual but still great food. Thanks for any advice you can give us!!
For a more casual place but with great great food - try KunJip on 32nd St. They do not take reservations and there is usually always a line to get in but isn't that usually a good sign? Of the several places I've been on 32nd St. KunJip is my favorite. Search the board for lots of posts.
I second KunJip.
Han Baht (35th st)
Cho Dang Gol (35th st) for soon dubu
Gam Mee Ok for sul-lung-tahng (32nd st)
I really like Kum Gang San on 32nd Street. It's casual, but the setting is actually very nice. They have a very dramatic 2 story rock wall with a waterfall in the restaurant...cheesy some may argue, but fun nonetheless. Maybe it's not the spot for your special night out, but definitely worth a stop if your husband is craving Korean food.
