Jung Sik Opens in New York

[sam id=1]

One of our favorite restaurants in Korea, Jung Sik Dang, has opened its doors to New Yorkers this week under the name Jung Sik. We were lucky enough to have dined at the original Jung Sik Dang just two months after it opened in 2009. To celebrate Jung Sik’s opening, here are a few posts and videos we have made of the Jung Sik Dang empire over the years.
