Cho Dang Gol has been around for a few decades now, and they still give you a little bowl of their famous housemade tofu along with the rest of their banchan to start your meal. They make great versions of any Korean classic you might be looking for, including pork belly, bibimbap, kimchi stew, and fried chicken. Expect a wait, and bring a group so you can split a bunch of things.

Haenyeo is a walk-in-only spot in Park Slope with a fun atmosphere and some very good Korean food.
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.
Kunjip is a Koreatown favorite, Perfect For a quick meal before you head to Madison Square Garden.
