Dine Out : Dong Chun Hong

January 26, 2012

I love food and discovering fun new places to eat in NYC so I was thrilled when I was able to attend a Grand Opening Tasting Event at Dong Chun Hong a few weeks back. The recently opened Seoul export located in Koreatown serves a fusion menu of two of my favorite cuisines ~ Chinese and Korean. The clean modern decor of the space with elegant chandeliers and embellished artwork created by a local artist on paneled walls provides a pleasing dining atmosphere. Overall the food and service were quite satisfying. I think the dishes included in the tasting only touched upon a sampling of their entire repertoire as I spied a vast menu with many intriguing fusion style offerings along with a number of meal set options on their website. And they serve Jjamppong! That in itself dictates a return visit to try.

  1. Looks delicious! You are very lucky! Kisses <3<3

  2. Very interesting place! Thank you for the info!

  3. I love the floors and the chandeliers. I also think it's nice they separated the people on the banquette seating with panels so you maybe feel like you have a bit more privacy even if you don't. It's too bad that Korean food isn't usually vegetarian because it always looks and smells so good!

  4. Thanks a lot for your kind comment!!! I start following you on BLOGLOVIN & GFC, hope you'll follow back on BOTH!!!


  5. YUMM!! I love Chinese and Korean fusion food. I'm so drooling over that bowl of ja jang myun right now! haha

  10. What an elegant dining area, love the chandelier. I've never tried Korean food before (I don't even think we get it here in SA) but from your pics, it looks so divine!

  11. Thank you SO MUCH for your vegetarian Korean restaurant recommendation. I'm definitely going to stop either there or their cafe when I visit Manhattan in the spring! I can't wait to try it!

    I've been a vegetarian since high school, so it's been a while. It's always nice to find places that have vegetarian options at least but it's even better when I can choose anything I want.
