Highly rated Ethnic Asian dining establishments in NYC
Thank you in advance for your suggestions. I'm looking for the best Asian food restaurants, hole in the walls, etc. in NYC. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Much too broad a question... Chinese places alone can fill an entire board. Search for posts from posters AubWah and Lau for help, especially Chinatown, noodles, xlb.
I cant see how just getting lists will prove helpful to you, esp since you are also doing this for SF and LV.
Here's a few
Thai - Zaab Elee
Sri Lanka - Sigiri
Sichuan - Grand Sichuan; Legend
Xian Famous Foods
All the places in the David Chang empire have Asian influences.
Indian - Junoon
Korea - Jungsik; search for "Korea Town"
Japanese - 15 East for sushi
Well, are you more interested in downscale regional Chinese cuisine places like Xian Famous Foods and the Fuzhounese pulled noodle places in Chinatown, or upscale places? What categories of Asian cuisines most interest you?
Also, if you haven't already done so, make sure to ask your question in the Outer Boroughs board. You'll be deluged with dozens of interesting suggestions.
hi rene...hope your research goes well...but when you do the show, i'm hoping you won't refer to them as "ethnic Asian restaurants" -- simply saying "Asian restaurants" would be better...imo (and the opinion of many others), using "ethnic" as a catchall for non-Western is a term that's hopefully being banished to the dustbin that contains words like "colored"...
Danji is the only Korean in the country with a Michelin star.
It is also tiny. The waits can be long because prices are very reasonable while quality extremely high.
Not many people know about it since they don't do much pr but it's the best Korean food in the country. Extremely authentic flavors.
re: small h
jungsik? korean? i wouldn't categorize jungsik as a korean restaurant. 80% of their menu is western dishes. just because Daniel has pasta on their menu it's not italian.
and if you haven't been to jungsik why do you think it's better than danji? i've been to both as have many of my friends. not a single one thinks jungsik is even in the same league as danji when it comes to authentic korean flavors.
bcd used msg. a lot of msg. i got hives all 5 times i ate there.
