Bunsmith is a Korean spot in Crown Heights that specializes in buns. We especially like the ones with fried chicken and pork jowl, and, depending on much we’ve had to drink we occasionally get the one with spam and cookie butter (which sounds overwhelming, but is, in fact, delicious). There are also a bunch of rice bowls if you want something a little more substantial, and there’s a pretty good beer selection as well. Stop by for a solo meal on a weeknight, sit at the bar, and have a meal that’ll probably cost you less than $20.
Bunsmith is permanently closed.

The Woo is a two-story Korean barbecue spot in Soho. It’s a little pricier than average, but the beef is great, and it isn’t hard to get into.
It seems like lately, all of the Korean food we’ve been eating has been of the “trendy re-interpretation” variety. While we’re fine with that, occasionally we get a craving for a more traditional meal, and for that, we head to Madangsui.
