I'm talking Korean food in New York, obviously.

AYEEE I AM READY TO BE FED.


New York

Cho Dang Gol

First stop is the Korean mother hen of restaurants, Cho Dang Gol.

I say 'mother hen' because whatever your heart desires is what you shall have.

For ex: for particularly crappy days when all you want to do is kick back with some jeon.

Or when you miss home, and all you want is rolled omelettes like your mom's.


New York

Dons Bogam BBQ & Wine Bar

Those preconceptions you had of a Korean BBQ place - smoky and smelly? Chuck 'em out.

Instagram ID @hnybeee

Don's Bogam is here to show you that not all Korean BBQ spots are created equal.

They've even come up with a solution for the preternaturally indecisive: noodle halfies!

And rumor has it that a certain hotshot ex-footballer is a regular.

Actually, no, not a rumor. Thierry Henry: the evidence is all over Instagram.


New York

Her Name Is Han

When you're a millennial, good food just won't suffice. It's good food + Insta vibes now.

 Pictures
Instagram ID @jamielin.life

And "Her Name is Han" has mastered the good-looking home-style cooking formula.

Nowhere else in the city will you find Korean-style donkatsu that is as picturesque.

Not to mention: sesame ice cream. SESAME. ICE. CREAM. PRETTY. SESAME. ICE. CREAM.


New York

Thursday Kitchen

 Pictures
Instagram ID @gr8_foodnyc

If you ever entertained the thought of mixing Korean and Spanish food, you're TOO LATE.

 Pictures
Instagram ID @kirstiehung

"Thursday Kitchen" sticks to tapas-style small bites with Korean and Spanish inflections.

 Pictures
Instagram ID @eye.kim

From caramelized (!) kimchi paella to crispy chicken - fill up on various noms all at once

 Pictures
Instagram ID @cescalaraque

All washed down with Capri-Sun for adults - aka soju in a pouch. #koreanmuch


New York

Jungsik NY

Be prepared to spend some very very VEEEERRRRYYYYY big bucks.

 Pictures
Instagram ID @jnsbseoul

Cuz this seared octopus with gochujang aioli > your monthly rent. #JOKESSS

 Pictures
Instagram ID @xingxingjun

But in all seriousness, the experience at Michelin 2-star Jungsik is like no other.

 Pictures

Fresh ingredients, unbound creativity, and, per fancy restaurant tradition, tiny-ass food.

 Pictures
Instagram ID @wheresmabelt

Did I mention unbound creativity? BEHOLD: tiny banana, or dessert encased in tiny banana?


New York

mokbar

 Pictures
Instagram ID @gilliehouston

When you think of Korea, you think ramyun, ramyun, and Psy (just go with it).

 Pictures
Instagram ID @theninabobo

But "Mokbar" isn't your average shady back-alley ramyun joint.

 Pictures
Instagram ID @trycaviarnyc

You won't even require the extra side dishes, since they'll just be piled on top.

 Pictures
Instagram ID @andrewlersanlin

But if you REALLY want, you can, of course, get the kimchi loaded fries.

 Pictures
Instagram ID @hungrynyc

And crispy hotteok with pork belly and kimchi pear puree. #savorydessertftw

Don't just look and drool. GET. YOURSELF. ON. A. PLANE. BOUND. FOR. NEW. YORK. NOW.

 Pictures

Cuz DAYUMMM do I need all this food in my mouth right now.

Inserting ending gif of unbridled joy to emphasize enthusiasm for NYC Korean food. EYYYYY.
