I've been enjoying an occasional bowl of congee for breakfast recently, but it isn't always possible to stop in Flushing or go to Chinatown on my way to work. This morning, it dawned on me that there might be something available in Koreatown (perhaps some jook, which I have never tried, but maybe now is the time), but when I walked down 32nd Street the only things that seemed to be open were the 24-hr. bbq places.
Can anyone recommend a good Koreatown breakfast option?
not much on 32nd street. lots of places are open 24 hours but they all serve the same stuff around the clock (bbq, bibimbap, jjiages, etc). i don't even know of any place in the vicinity that serves korean-style jook, though it's possible that it's buried in the menus of some of the all-purpose korean restaurants.
the only two places i really go to in the early morning hours are gam mee ok and yang pyung. both specialize in hearty, hangover-remedy soups (sullungtang at the former and haejanggook at the latter). i don't think jook is available at either, though i could be wrong.
