Maangchi moves to Manhattan

By Maangchi

Hello, helloooow!
I’m moving to New York City on June 30. I am going to live and work in New York for at least 1 year.

I always wanted to have a party for my Toronto readers, but I just ran out of time. I hope you guys aren’t to upset about it. And I usually made a new cooking video every 2 weeks, but this time I will be late, I’m too busy. Also, I might be late answering questions over the next little while, because I will need to set up my internet.


Once I get settled in, I’d love to meet some of my New York readers. I’ll let you know when and where, just email me at [email protected] if you want to come.

My next cooking video will be made at my new place in New York! It’s exciting, isn’t it?

    I know you’ve moved out from Toronto for quite some time now but I use to live there and recently went to England to study. I wish I had known about you eariler, I have many friends that are korean and would have LOVED to meet you! I think cooking is such a special tool as it brings people together and creates communication. Thank you for doing what you do! I love korean food! :D

    Welcome to NYC! I loved in NYC from 1998 till last July when I moved to Maine to start a new job. I miss NYC and its variety of food.

    Wow, I didn’t know you were here!

    I live in West Harlem, right next to Columbia and Morningside Park!

    I bet I shopped at the same Korean grocery you have, on 32’nd and Broadway!

    Unfortunately they did not have frozen oysters for my Kimchi I am making as we speak (just got done salting). I am going to run out and buy fresh ones at Citarella and come back and finish the prep work.

    Hopefully you’ll have a meetup in the spring! That would be great.

    Thank you for your nice and warm message.
    I love NY so far. : )

    I posted mild taste ddukbokkie recipe.

    The eggplant side dish you mention is unfamiliar to me. Please ask other people here on the forum. Someone else may know about the dish.

    thank you very much and have a nice day!

    Hi Maangchi, I’m so happy to find your web site – you have a great style and make me want to cook, cook, cook. My husband and I are both American born Koreans living in NYC with three kids. We both grew up in the midwest in the 70’s and 80’s and unfortunately don’t speak Korean, so our connection is really through food.

    In any case, I found your site when I tried to find a recipe for jja jjang myun, because I never found a place I think is really good in NYC. But I found jjajjang myun and many others that I love like eggplant gaji namul (this is my moms special, she makes the same – only tear). Actually, I’m looking for two other recipes that are my mom’s “family recipes” 1.) dukboki royal style – not spicy and 2.) eggplant stuffed with meat and doen jang in a really good broth.

    Do you know of these? Her family and my husbands family came to North Korea so I think they are more Northern specialties.

    I hope you like NYC. It can be wonderful and weird, crowded and lonely all at the same time

    Hello Maangchi!
    I’ve come to know cultures through food too.
    Thanks to you, i get to have a first hand experience in cooking korean food…ahh so delicious!~ XD
    As a high school student, i usually just go to koreatown with some of my friends to eat dukbokki and other korean delicacies… but now..i could just make it at home! XD
    Thanks so much!
    I hope one day i could learn more from you in New York!
    Happy Holidays~

    Lynda Mun,
    I’m happy to read your comment. I think your children will learn a lot about Korean culture through your cooking.

    Mi Ae roll,
    oh, you are living in New York! Be sure to come for our next NY Meetup. I’m planning our Meetup sometime next spring. Happy Holidays!
