If you weren’t one of the lucky few who got tickets to BLACKPINK’s NYC show last summer (they sold out within a few minutes), you can drown your sorrows in a bowl of soup from this year’s second most exciting visit by way of Korea. Seoul-based restaurant Okdongsik is in NYC until April 2023 in a collaboration with HAND hospitality (Atomix, Her Name Is Han). They specialize in pork gomtang served gukbap-style, and their version is a particularly delicate soup with a light, clear broth and super thin pieces of pork. The 10-seat Koreatown pop-up only serves this one soup, and it's the perfect pitstop this rainy season.
