Kori’s exterior and interior of the dining room

Restaurant signage and our banchan spread
On a recent chilly Saturday afternoon, my family and I craved Korean food and decided on eating at Kum Sung Chik Naengmyun (interestingly enough, their sign reads Geum Sung Restaurant).

Some of the ingredients to make kimchi
Over the summer, I attended the Cook Out NYC preview party hosted at Jimmy Carbone’s restaurant, Jimmy’s No. 43 in the East Village and watched Kheedim Oh of Mama O’s Kimchee demonstrate how to make kimchi.
