Do you ever feel like getting away from the touristy spots and checking out some of New York City’s real hidden gems? If you’re in Midtown West, you’ve got to check out Korea town, the city’s own little korean community hidden away on just 5 blocks, between 31st and 36th street, and between 5th and 6th avenue. Don’t expect the colorful, crowded tourist destination that you get in Chinatown, Korea town is full of locals enjoying their culture, at all kinds of ethnic hunts. Try out some real, authentic Korean food like nothing you could find at an Americanized Korean place. Especially cool are the 24-7 Korean BBQ restaurants, where you can go in with a group and have fun cooking your own meat on a steaming hot coal BBQ in the middle of your table and picking at the cute Kimchi (varieties of pickled cabbage) plates. Korea town is dense with these great local joints, fun Karaoke bars, and korean spas on every street. Try a delicious Red Bean donut, sing Karaoke with friends, or treat yourself a Jade Igloo Sauna, all for affordable prices and while beating the crowd! Make this your next NYC mini-adventure, for sure!
