Just got back from Koreatown in Manhattan. I always have so much fun there…trying out new restaurants and exploring new bakeries.
Decided to check out Kun Jip. It was packed (which is always a good sign) and the food looked ridiculously delicious.
Sat down and was immediately brought an assortment of kimchi, seaweed salads, fried tofu, sweet and sticky dried squid and some hot tea.
Bibimbap: a signature Korean dish. The word literally means “mixed rice” It is a bowl of warm white sticky rice toped with veggies, sliced beef, a raw egg yolk, and chili paste. You are supposed to stir it all together. Best part of this dish..the rice that gets crispy and crunchy on the bottom;) DO NOT FORGET ABOUT ALL THAT GOODNESS!
Japchae: Sweet potato noodles served with sliced beef and sauteed vegetables. The noodles have the coolest consistency which makes it so much fun to eat!
Jumped into a bakery that was a couple doors down from the restaurant…Tous Les Jours
ha ha! Check out this hot dog pastry…brings a smile to my face.
Everything in this bakery was so fresh! Check out these donuts!
That concludes my little food adventure for the day…till next time!
