Had my first meal at Mapo Korean Restaurant at 41st Avenue and 150th St in Murray Hill (Flushing). If you enjoy Korean barbecue it's well worth it. First off, the kalbi (barbecue short ribs) was really wonderful-a clear cut above the norm. They use real charcoal and a grill that minimizes burning of the meat. The meat itself was very tender, nicely marinated and served with a side of sliced onions in a simple sauce that when taken together was really heavenly. Among the most delicious and satisfying versions in memory. Other dishes, including dukmandoo-guk (mild broth with beef dumplings and rice cakes) and dengjang-chigae (spicy bean paste soup) were also delicious. Panchan (free assorted starters) good to boot. Place is simple but comfortable and homey. Not much English. Nice people and pleasant service. Based on one visit alone I'd say it's a winner. 150th St two blocks or so below Northern Blvd. Go!
