Tuesdays in the 30's

My boyfriend and I are taking a class on 30th street and 5th ave. It's every Tuesday for 10 weeks and we've decided to make it sort of a 'date night' and grab dinner after the class. We obviously want to try different places every week, maybe starting in Korea Town. Any suggestions for one or multiple Tuesday in the 30's?

          Last Tuesday we went to Arirang in K-town and had the chicken Kar-jaebe and seafood pancake. It was a great choice for the rainy day and the price was pretty good. Looking forward to trying out another place tomorrow.

        I recently ate bebimbap at Kun Jip, and I really disliked it, and the service was obnoxious.

        I really enjoyed my meal Gahm Mi Oak, because they serve really wonderful Sul Long Tang (ox broth with noodles).

        I also very much enjoy Mandoo Bar for dumplings.

        Len Shang on w.39th near Sixth Avenue has really tasty and adventurous Szechuan food. One of my favorite dishes there is a cold appetizer of spicy jelly fish.

            Last week we went to Kun Jip (even though we've read mixed reviews, our friend swears by it.) Although the Bi-Bim-Bop didn't blow us away, everything else was terrific and it was a really fun atmosphere. We ate the spicy tofu stew, dumplings, and a baked egg dish in addition to the good, but not great bulgogi bibimbap.

            Looking forward to tonight. Might mix it up a little and do some noshing in eatily.
