Mandoo (NYC: Midtown)

By in 03: NYC

There’s a Koreatown near Madison Square (the scale is no way near the epic size of the LA one), about 7 blocks from my office. It is rather neat block with lots of nice polish and slick Korean restaurant. There’s this very good dumpling house with a front window view of the kitchen. The green = veggie, white = pork and pink = seafood. All VERY VERY good! Very satisfied. 😀 My friend told me that awhile ago some copy cat open a dumpling house on the same block with the same open front window kitchen…but the quality is so bad that it closed down very soon. A bit walking for lunch hour but this sure beats the deli fodo I’m so sick of.

    You know how most korean restaurants don’t have dumplings in their menu, so I was surprised to see a lot of shops specialised in dumplings when I went to Korea.
    The pink ones are seafood? Thought they were kimchi!

    From pictures the skin seems thick, but it’s still very good right?
    You can order them fried or steamed?
