Gopchang Story

Gopchang Story is situated so far on the eastern corner of Koreatown that it actually lives on Fifth Avenue. The meathouse specializes in a type of barbecue called gopchang gui, a hot pot platter of grilled beef intestines, and they serve some of the most luscious cuts of meat you really won’t find elsewhere in the city. Here, the two main banchan are the oblong platter of garlic chives kimchi and a ramekin of soy sauce pickled onions and garlic cloves. They’re incredibly light, bright, and served cold - an excellent pop of contrast to gopchang’s fattiness.
