In the East Village, there are good restaurants hidden everywhere - and K’ook is one of them. It’s a Korean spot in a plain little basement space that you could walk by without even noticing, and it’s where you can eat some rice cakes and fried chicken while you listen to K-pop. The menu is pretty big, with stuff like bulgogi, tofu soup, gimbap, and mandu, and it has some of the best homestyle Korean food you’ll find in the city. Portions are also large, and the prices are ideal for weeknights.
