Best Korean-Chinese in NY/NJ area?

KFoodHound | Aug 12, 2002 11:06 PM

I have a huge craving for Korean-Chinese food, and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations in either Manhattan, Queens, or NJ.

I have been to one on 32nd street (on the south side of the street), and it's pretty mediocre. I am willing to trek out to Flushing.

I used to go to this place in Fort Lee, NJ called "Crystal Palace", and they have great "cha-chang myun" and "tang-su-yuk", but it's hard to get to since I live in manhattan, and I don't have a car. (I can afford a car, but not parking.. ;) ) But if there is a place that's better, then maybe I can convince my relatives to drive me there.

Is it just me or does New Jersey seem to have all the great Korean restaurants? Not sure about Flushing, but from my exprerience, NJ korean restaurants beat Manhattan Ktown restaurants hands down. They are much cheaper, better service, larger quantities of food, and fresher ingredients. Maybe I have been going to the wrong restaurants in Ktown here, but I have been to great deal of them while living here for almost 10 years. Just curious what others think.

For those who aren't familiar with these dishes.
"cha-chang Myun" is a very popular black sauce noodle dish. (wish I had a better description)

"tang-su-yuk" is similar to sweet and sour pork, but tastes very different than American-Chinese version. I usually get the beef version though.
