Korea Town Recs

Although living in Manhattan for over 10 years, I'm only now venturing to Korea town to eat. Any recommendations on restaurants and specific dishes (I'm not very familiar with Korean food)? Thanks!

    1. Gahm Mi Oak for ox-one soup
      Bon Chon Chicken for fried chicken
      Mandoo Bar for dumplings

      There are a ton of mediocre restaurants on that street, so beware. Oh, and also Woorijip for when you only have seven dollars to your name...

      1. haven't tried madangsui but really fond of wonjo and don's bogam for korean bbq, if ur lookin for fresh made tofu dishes, go to cho dang gol... madangsui and bon chon are solid bets as well... i would also recommend shanghai mong or hyo dong gak for jja jjang myun (noodles with black bean sauce)... po cha 32 and baden baden are also great to grab food with your beer/soju...

          1. You should definitely read all the threads linked above, but for what it's worth, I like Madangsui for BBQ, Han Bat for hyaemul dolsot bibimbap, and Mandoo Bar for mandoo soup.
