Korea Town in NYC, 32nd street between 5th and 6th avenues, has some really good Korean spots. But, when I'm craving Korean food, my top spot is now on 35th street between 5th and 6th; Madangsui.
I first heard about Madangsui, from Frank Bruni's one-star rave in the New York Times last year, and it was a well deserved great review. The place is great! I've had many dishes there, and last week, I was once again, overly satisfied.
I love dining at Korean restaurants because they send out all those little appetizing snacks (usually some sort of pickled veggies and kimchi) before your dishes come. The ones at Madangsui are the freshest and best I've had!
All these delicious freebies could amount to a whole meal if you wanted it to! On my most recent visit though, I ordered a soup with vegetables ($10.99) which was flavorful, soothing, and great!
