Jungsik - Fine Dining in Manhattan

Jungsik offers a modern and unique understanding of contemporary Korean cuisine – innovative chef Yim has christened it as New Korean. The name for the restaurant, Jungsik, was a play on words. In the Korean language Jung Sik is a formal dinner and it is also the name of our chef. We invite you to come and experience the boldly flavored and whimsical culinary offerings of restaurant Jungsik.

East Village Restaurant in Seoul

Tteokgalbi passes for a forlorn hamburger patty on many Korean restaurant menus, and it often goes ignored by diners because of its unassuming appearance. Kwon Woo-joong, the chef and owner of East Village in Seoul, wants to redeem it.

아주 쉬운, 곶감 수정과 만들기

Sujeonggwa (수정과), made with dried persimmon, is one of my favorite Korean teas. It's a hearty fall/winter tea with generous amounts of ginger, cinnamon, honey and brown sugar.

I found this recipe on a blog called 맛짱의 즐거운 요리시간 . Check out the other great recipes and photos.

Chuseok Dduk

Chuseok (추석)

Songpyeon (송편; half-moon shaped rice cake) has come to represent Chuseok (Thanksgiving) itself. The most popular kind of songpyeon (송편) is half-moon shaped rice pastry with sweet fillings of sesame seeds or mung bean powder. The name comes from how the rice cakes are steamed on a bed of fresh pine needles.

삼계탕 만드는 법

영양보충은 삼계탕이 최고죠. 집에서 간단하게 끓일 수 있어서 요즘처럼 기력이 허해질 때 자주 만들어 먹는답니다. 요리 수업 시간에도 삼계탕을 배웠는데요. 선생님은 멸치장국 국물을 만들어서 넣으시고, 잡곡도 많이 넣으면 맛있다고 하시더라구요....

It's summertime! Time for Samgyeitang!

This is hands down our favorite Korean restaurant in San Francisco. For yummy 순두부찌개 (soft tofu soup) and friendly, great service, this is the perfect place for a satisfying Korean meal.

They don't seem to have website anymore, so here's their Yelp page.
