Jungsik: tasting menu or a la carte?

ah6tyfour | Feb 9, 201411:54 PM

I'm going to be dining at Jungsik soon with one other person. Should we opt for the tasting menu or go a la carte? It looks like the price is similar either way (full orders of the octopus app, sea urchin rice, black bass, pork jowl, and jang dok dessert comes to $141 vs $151 tasting menu). Do the a la carte diners still get the amuses and petits fours that the tasting menu diners get? The tasting menu they have online seems to only have 1-2 dishes that overlap the a la carte.

If I do go a la carte, are there any favorites? It seems the ones I listed above are pretty popular. How are the portions? We're both guys who can eat, so I am assuming we would go with full size orders of everything.

Hopefully I'm making the right decision with Jungsik. Reviews on here have been mainly positive, so I am hopeful. My other choices were the tasting menu at Bouley and the kaiseki menu at Brushstroke.
