Woorijip is a New York City institution, and it’s where you should go for a quick grab-and-go meal around 32nd Street. While it previously featured a buffet setup, the brightly lit space now looks like a bookstore—but instead of beach reads, the shelves are stacked with packages of satisfying home-style Korean food. There’s kimbap, fried chicken, bulgogi, mackerel, japchae, and roughly a million other things, most of which cost less than $10. The selection is overwhelming, and we’ve found the best course of action is to get a plastic tray and grab things impulsively until we can longer carry said tray. Take your food to go, or heat your meal in one of the microwaves, then park yourself at a table.
