YUMMY – My father thinks the naengmyun at this place is "really good... for America." That's pretty much the ultimate compliment coming from him (a self-proclaimed naengmyun expert). The food is delicious, and the servers are very attentive. It's also *slightly* more affordable than many of the other Korean restaurants in this city, which I suppose isn't saying much, but it helps.
Let them cater to you ... – Fantastic place. Been there over 5 times and I must say each experience was absolutely phenomenol. The service is great for what its worth. They really spoil you and the waitresses are very helpful with menu selection. The trick is to smile and be nice to them, and they will welcome you with a warm heart.
Order Bibimbop (platter or dry) for vegetarians!
The Best Korean lunch specials – If you can make it to Dae Dong for lunch during a weekday, it'll be well worth it. The lunch specials offer a variety of "lunch boxes" that are like Japanese style Bento boxes, except with Korean food. They have Bulgogi, Galbi, salmon and several other dishes on their lunchbox menu. The lunch specials include a side of jabchae, a california roll, a couple of dumplings, sometimes a free beverage, and shikhae (a sweet rice drink) for dessert. It's well worth it. The food outside of the lunch specials is also excellent. Unlike some other Korean restaurants, Dae Dong always has great banchan (sidedishes) and has a wide variety of Korean main dishes to choose from. You are also seated in booths, so you have a certain amount of privacy. I think this is the best Korean restaurant on 32nd.
Huge portions – It is just one of the Korean restuarants on 32nd, nothing so special, except for their portions. I think they give you so much cuz the food isn't so tasty. It is a good bargain when you pay average $10 food and get so many dishes of ban chan. I would recommend it to friends if they ask, but I have other recommendations for Korean food that are 10 times better.
great Korean lunch restaurant – This restaurant was an incredible value for lunch! It is expensive for dinner, but that is your decision to make. I work nearby and walked right in. The food was fresh & superb, the service was non-stop and friendly, and the restaurant itself was clean and pleasing. I paid $12 including tax & tip for a beef entree with salad, noodles, rice, a fried dumpling, many free appetizers and a glass of ice water.
