Korea Town

I went out for dinner with some colleagues and their room mates last night. We went to Korea Town, which is basically a small road of Korean restaurants on 32nd street between Broadway and 5th Avenue.

I've eaten quite a bit of Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese food before, but I think this was my first visit to a Korean restaurant. What really impressed me was that after we ordered about 10 little taster dishes arrived for us to share. They were all excellent. Apparently in Korea it is quite common for restaurants to complete on the quality and variety of the taster dishes they offer. I think I'll go back to sample some more!

I tried to go to the United Nations this afternoon, but unfortunately they don't offer tours on a Saturday.


  1. The Japanese call the Koreans the "garlic eaters", is there any basis?

  2. There was a fair amount of garlic on in the dishes.
