So Moon Nan Jip literally means “the house everyone is taking about” or “the most popular house” in Korean. I just hoped that the restaurant lived up to its name.

I ordered the dolsot bibimbop which came in a stone pot which makes the rice on the bottom extra crunchy which I always like. My girl ordered the Yookgyejang which is a spicy beef stew. Both tasted how it should taste and also came with a assortment of side dishes. All in all, I was not disappointed. They are known for their Korean BBQ but did not have a chance to order it. Maybe next time?

I met up with one of my sorority sisters and we both had lunch together at Kum Gang San restaurant located in K-town, Manhattan. The restaurant had two floors and it was very immense inside. The decor was also nice. How about the food? I think it was pretty average for Korean food…nothing special. It still filled me up though.

I ordered the gop dol bibimbop, which came in a hot stone pot. There was also another option on the menu if you want it served cold. My dish also came with a small bowl of miso soup. The bibimbop came with the usual marinated beef, sauteed vegetables with seaweed, and a nice egg on top. I thought it was kind of dull…the flavors just didn’t pop in my mouth. Unfortunately, it was quite disappointing. My sister ordered a dumpling soup. The banchan (small side dishes) were okay…I particularly liked the bean curd. Towards the end, we were given these small bowls of complimentary icy strawberry desserts.

Great place for lunch if you are in the area but definitely not a place worth trekking to unless you are meeting up with a friend. 🙂

My mom and I ate at a very rustic styled Korean restaurant in Palisades Park, NJ. I ordered the Fish Egg & Kimchi bimbimbop which came in a sizzling stone pot. It was very delicious and the stone pot cooked the fish eggs almost immediately upon contact. The kimchi was a huge highlight of the dish which was fermented perfectly.
