I have family visiting from Europe, so have decided to keep my posts short, sweet, yet functional for the next few days. I’ve been craving Korean food recently, and thanks to my family, stumbled upon this cute gem called Barn Joo in Herald Square a few days ago.
Barn Joo has two locations, in Midtown and Union Square. I visited the Midtown location today for lunch. It’s stylish, a walk-in, and features a short but yummy, budget-friendly menu. Love, Love, Love the spicy pork bulgogi!! It was served in a hot stone bowl. Piping hot spicy soup with brown rice and spicy pork hit the spot on a snappy cold day. Barn Joo is open quite late on some nights and I’d love to pay them a late night visit and sample their Korean tacos and sashimi salad.
Have you been to the Midtown location? Or maybe Union Square? Any thoughts on their menu? Perhaps you can recommend other Korean eateries in that area? For now, Barn Joo is a firm favorite and a strong recommendation from me.
