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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

Be prepared to spend some very very VEEEERRRRYYYYY big bucks.

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

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


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?

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

 Pictures stuffflypeoplelike.com

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

 Pictures stuffflypeoplelike.com

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