Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City

The lunch choices at Her Name is Han are mostly comprised of combination platters and bapsang, consisting of a main protein and a number of side dishes.

It’s a great way to taste a little of a lot of things at this modern hip Korean restaurant located just on the outskirts of Koreatown.

The bapsang is mostly a good deal, but does leave you a little hungry. That’s part of why I also ordered the black seasame tofu. And amazingly, it was a bit heartier and more filling than the very light combo platter.

KANG HO DONG BAEKJEONG, 1 East 32nd Street (between Fifth and Madison Avenue), KoreatownThere are people out there who love a good steak but have never experienced Korean barbecue. If that’s the case, it’s time you stop what you’re doing (well, finish reading this first) and head over to a restaurant that specializes in Korean grilled beef. A good place to start would be the overly popular and excellent Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong. (more…)


I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2015…

Maesaengi Soup with Three-Colored Noodles at DADAM

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!!
