Food Gallery 32

11 W. 32nd St. New York, NY 10001 | Koreatown | 212-967-1678

Location Description:

This gleaming three-story food court Food Gallery 32--with plenty of seating, some dramatic, on all levels--is about as good as these institutions get. Food is cooked to order (and it sometimes takes 15 minutes, be patient) at seven different stalls, featuring mainstream Korean, Korean-Chinese, Taiwanese, and Japanese fare. There are noodles and dumplings galore, but the counter called Korea House takes a more serious approach to Seoul food, even producing medicinal ginseng-stuffed chickens, in addition to the usual bulgogis and bi-bim-baps. Another stall, Boon Sik Zip, specializes in wacky nori rolls (like bacon and pickled garlic) and fish-paste concoctions. Best go in the evening when the place is not so crowded.
