Where can I find dak galbi?
As I'm having a bit of trouble sleeping tonight, I have been surfing on the Net looking at yummy pics of Korean food. I then spy this:
Dak galbi is spicy chicken cooked with sweet potatoes, sesame leaves, leek, cabbage and rice cakes. I've never had this. I don't even think I've even seen it on a menu either. I don't think this is the same as dak gui. Does anybody know where I can try this marvelous sounding dish (without the mozzarella)?
When I lived in Seoul, this was easily my favorite thing to eat in a sea of delicious food. In Seoul, it was cooked right in front of you in a round grill, with lots of soju at hand. For that, I think you've got to search the Boroughs board. In Manhattan, Cho Dang Gol (which seems to be rejuvenated of late--I had a great meal there last week) has a passable version of it, but it's brought out on a hot stone plate. No grill = not worth it. It's just not the same. Seek out the grill version in Queens.
Aha, I just looked at the link you attached. The thing is, that doesn't even look as good as the stuff I remember, but I was glad (and a little nostalgically melancholy) to see those grills in action.
i've been looking for this as well as i had it once in Seoul and it was awesome...its definitely not available in manhattan
its possible its available in flushing or in fort lee / palisades park...there was in place in flushing called 1.5 Dak Kalbi, but its closed
if anyone knows i'd be very thankful
