Awesome modern Korean bites await you at Danji in Midtown. I'd been wanting to check this place out for a while, and after a meal there last week, I was beyond amazed. I can't wait to go back and try the rest of the menu!
I rarely order tofu dishes, but the bartender recommended the tofu with ginger scallion dressing ($8), and a soy vinaigrette, I trusted him. This was a smart move, because the dish was incredible. Lightly fried, and with just a small little kick, the flavor and texture of this tofu was unlike any I'd encountered before. Tofu greatness!
Spicy pork belly sliders ($12), with scallions, cucumber julienne, and kochujang are absolutely delicious. A wonderful balance of flavor and texture.
Poached sablefish ($18), with spicy daikon is fabulous. I never really eat sablefish, but this fish was so perfectly cooked, it practically melted in my mouth. The sauce was out of this world too.
