Jungsik ** – New York

There are very few Korean restaurants with Michelin Stars and I was fortunate to visit Jungsik a Korean restaurant in New York’s TriBeCa. Jungsik also has an outpost in Gangnam’s Cheongdam neighborhood which I would like to visit the next time I am in Seoul, Korea.

I was glad to find that although they did offer a chef’s tasting menu, they offered a regular menu for persons who did not want or did not have the time to do a full 3 hours for dinner.

It was the end of the summer and the first seating, I was the first person there. It was nice to have the entire place to my self. There is something surreal about being the alone in places where usually is a shared, public place.

This is probably the first and only Korean meal I had or will have that I had the been given both a fork and a pair of chopsticks and I used the fork for the entire meal.

The food was solid with traditional Korean flavors and techniques reimagined in new ways. I especially liked my Harubang shaped desert and the Sea Urchin rice was the highlight of my meal.

My Harubang shaped green tea mousse was perfect. IMG_1531 IMG_1532 IMG_1534 IMG_1533IMG_1535
