Jul 26, 2011
People around the world, but particularly in New York City, have become increasingly aware of and interested in eating Korean food. The city itself has many Korean restaurants, giving locals a chance to try some of Korea’s best foods.
According to the Ministry of Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, French chef Jean Georges Vongerichten, who runs restaurants in Las Vegas, London, Paris, Shanghai and New York, began introducing Korean-inspired foods like kimchi hotdogs and buttered steak with red pepper paste at his Perry St and Mercer Kitchen restaurants.
Korean-American chef David Chang introduced the popular kimchi steak at Momofuku Noodle Bar.
American chef Angelo Sosa, who appeared on the seventh season of the reality TV show Top Chef, introduced Korean flavors in dishes like his bulgogi burger, gochujan galbi and bibimbap burgers at Social Eatz in Manhattan. His Korean-inspired entrees now account for 35 percent of total sales. (Photo: Yonhap News)
