Culinary ‘Art’ has been fooling us for years. High end ingredients disguised as colorful paint trapped in a plate canvas… minus the true representation of flavors. It was an inevitable conclusion I drew from numerous mistrials with artful dishes produced by renowned Chefs. Sure, it is enough to captivate the diners’ attention with such beautiful presentation, but what next? I seem to have developed a cruel pattern where I lose my interest after realizing it’s just another frou-frou dish.
To the first milestone- I found a restaurant with seamless execution of culinary+art at its finest. Fried Oysters so crisp, Pork Jowl so succulent and crunchy, Ongshimi unexpectedly feisty, Jangdok + Flower Pot too beautiful to even touch.
JUNGSIK was named the first modern haute-Korean restaurant in all of New York City receiving star studded reviews and oh let me never forget, a Michelin star.
If you are only use to Korea Town’s generous portion with everything focused on taste with a magic called MSG, it’s time to embrace the new found world of Korean fine dining.
