Everyone knows Korea is where the party - and eating - starts and never ends.

But today, let's think more global. #cuzdiversity #lovetrumpshate

Methinks of the concrete jungle of dazzling possibility, where dreams are made or broken.

Mmmhmm, let's get eating in the Big Apple, betches ❤

Who'd've thought that some of the best Korean spots outside of Korea could coexist...

In the city of bagels, lox, and the Infatuation-worthy restaurants?


New York

Hanjan

Nowhere better to start than at Chef Hooni Kim's most recent brainchild, Hanjan.

From the old and standard flavors of Korean cuisine (think kimchi and bibimbap)...

arose delightfully novel and unknown gastronomical concoctions, like crispy crab with tofu

Not to mention that Chinese Tuesday always delivers on beloved Chinese-Korean staples.

With a name that literally means 'one drink,' it would be criminal to skimp on the spirits


New York

Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong

The name might ring a very, veeery sizable bell.

Who else could run the most popular Korean BBQ chain than this little one?

In the spirit of all that is Korean BBQ, there's nothing better than sharing at large.

One more #foodporn shot, meat, cheese, eggs, and vegetables included.

If you're more of a traditional, classics-or-nothing type, then this one's for you.

From the neon sign to the elderly resting outside, everything screams 'old-school Korea.'

Eat together to be happy together ❤️


New York

Hangawi

If you thought meat was all that consisted of Korean food though, you're wrong. #fact

Posh, upscale, and healthy, Hangawi does vegetarian like none of its counterparts.

Check your shoes at the door and enjoy sumptuous, vegan delights in Koreatown.

Not to mention 110 points on presentation alone. #instagramready


New York

Oiji

When you didn't think you needed another modern 'Asian' restaurant, but you actually did.

 Pictures
Instagram ID @stefoodography

Kick off your meal with the 'Chiljeolpan,' crepes with assorted sides to stuff with.

 Pictures
Instagram ID @sagesociety

Anything is possible at Oiji. See: octopus w/ butter gochujang and perilla leaf pesto.

Popeyes made gainz with spinach; Koreans bulk up with slow-cooked oxtail and root veggies.

There's always comfort to be found in a bowl of jangjorim buttered rice.

Honey Butter Chips, aka the It-item of Korea 2015, aka your new favorite dessert.


New York

Momofuku Ssam Bar

Rounding out the list is, of course, a vital pit stop for both visitors and locals in NYC.

Nothing could rival in terms of iconic status than David Chang's pork belly buns.

 Pictures
Instagram ID @madeleinechang

But true followers will have you know that the ssam is pretty much the Queen B here.

Holla at my spicy-food aficionados: Sichuan peppercorn-fried rice cakes with sausage.

 Pictures
Instagram ID @naughtyspoon

But let's be real here: when at Momofuku, the only righteous path is the duck ssam.

Can it be said that going to New York is on everyone's bucket list? *Hint: yes.

My advice though? Don't go for the pizza and Halal Guys (too obvious).
