Gae Jang - spicy raw crab, K-town, in Manhattan
Does anybody know which restaurants in K-town, Manhattan serve Gae Jang? The dish is raw crab(blue crab) marinated in either soy sauce or Korean miso paste. It's spicy too.
It's actually Ge Jang (or sometimes Gei Jang) - Gae Jang would be a spicy stew (a la Yook Gae Jang) - though of course due to transliteration, "Ge" could turn into "Gae" or "Ke" or "Kae" or "Kei" or... well, you get the idea.
Either way, Madangsui has it. Only place in Manhattan I know of off the top of my head.

OK. I asked a Korean friend of mine ("real" Korean, if you will, ha) and she told me there's absolutely nowhere in Manhattan that does a good version of this dish. She said the best place for this dish is called Gaya and it's in Leonia, NJ. I don't know if you are willing to venture out that far, but apparently she does and the trip's worth it for her. Hope this helped at all!
