Included In

At Geo Si Gi in Murray Hill, Queens, there are three rules to adhere to: bring a friend, bring cash, and order the gamjatang. Gamjatang is the house specialty at this casual, cabin-like spot, and you’ll need at least one other person to help you consume a huge, bubbling order. Served over a portable gas burner, the soup is deeply porky and packed with kimchi, rice cakes, and meat-lined bones. You can get it for around $20 per person, or you can pay a little more for a combo meal with bulgogi, pig trotter, or LA galbi. The restaurant accepts credit cards, but be sure to bring cash to tip the server who constantly pops by to refill your bowl with scalding broth.
