Woo Chon was always my go-to in Manhattan for old-school Korean. Everything was good, as opposed to most midtown places which have a handful of specialist dishes and everything else is a sucker bet (if I have one more refried-to-order pajun, I'll throw a fit).
Understand: I'm not asking for your favorite Korean. I know most of the obvious choices. I'm looking for a place with tip-top barbecue, excellent jigae and pancakes, classy, generous panchan....the full works with nothing an afterthought.
Manhattan, please, not Queens (I know, I know....it's way better in Flushing).
