Mandoo Bar

Mandoo Bar [2 West 32nd Street, New York; Menu]

It's all mandoo all the time at this Koreatown hangout. These Korean dumplings are handmade and served boiled, steamed or pan-fried with a variety of different fillings. For two people, I would recommend sharing one order of seafood/pork and one order of kimchee. The kimchee mandoo are particularly unique, offering a spicy sensation and fine flavor not normally found in dumplings. The baby mandoo are cute, but not really worth it. Stick to the big boys and eight to ten dumplings should be enough to fill most people up. Be wary of long lines at lunch time.
