I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2015…
Perhaps the most unique dish I tasted this year was the hard-to-find in New York Korean stew called maesaengi. It reared its head at a new hidden little gem inside Food Gallery 32. Dadam makes all sorts of traditional Korean stews (quite different then the usual bibibimbap and kimchi) and the first one I tried was fascinating. Maesaengi, which is often eaten as a birthday soup, is a delicate broth made from consists of delicate seaweed fulvescens and oyster. The tri-colored noodles, chewy colorful mochi balls, scallions, and bits of mussels add to this briny, earthy, slightly spicy experience. And it’s healthy too!!
