HIT Korean Deli

I used to eat Korean food every day, then I went to college and mostly only ate it when I went home. Then I graduated and moved away from Providence to New York, where I thought I would be eating a lot more of it, but that's not true. Korean food isn't as readily available as I thought, but I guess this isn't L.A...the west coast will always be the best. FOREVER! So yeah, I missed it so I did some hunting on the Internet for Korean places not in Flushing, and this deli came up. It's tucked behind the security desk of a random office building, but it's got a lot of good Korean food. And if the rest of it is as good as this bibim bap I had, then it's worth going back all the time.

This bibim bap was really good, mostly because it had so many different vegetables, some of which I think the owner grows in his own yard somewhere in Queens. There are sprouts, bean sprouts, cabbage, carrots, zucchini, lettuce, kale, seaweed, other unidentifiable pickled crunchy things, and a fried egg. This is before it all got mixed up with the sauce. It also comes with a side of soup (which was ok) and radish kimchi (which was not good, it was too fishy tasting).

LILY! there's manna kitchen on 18th and broadway and craig and i order from there all the time. the yukgaejang (or "shredded beef" as they call it on the menu) is so awesome. then i also recently found kofoo, on 8th avenue between 26th and 27th streets. it's good but a little salty for my taste, though the "chewy noodles" which is like bibimgooksoo but with really really "jjolgit jjolgit" thick noodles with a bunch of vegetables and seaweed and red pepper paste. if they deliver to us they deliver to you!!!!! but how about jjajangmyun this week?
