Jersey City is a melting pot of different cultures and a cornucopia of foods that will make any foodie jump for joy. And although it took a little time, Korean food in Jersey City is becoming more common with new spots popping up around the area. Find out below where you can sate your Korean food cravings.
Do you love chicken wings? Then you should give BonChon a try. The South-Korean chain restaurant has spots all over the U.S., including Jersey City. The twice-fried wings are succulent with a crunchy skin and come in two flavors: soy ginger or spicy. If you can’t decide, you can get half of each flavor. There are fries, kimchi, and pickled daikon to snack on along with the chicken. And although this is a fast-casual place, keep in mind that the chicken is made to order and takes a little time to cook.
DoShe Korean BBQ aims to bring people together in front of heaps of sizzling food. Situated on Erie Street in Jersey City, the restaurant serves a variety of meats grilled in front of customers at each table. While the food cooks, you’ll be treated to numerous sides and sauces that are meant to be eaten with the grilled meats. If you’re craving something else, DoShe Korean BBQ also serves other traditional Korean dishes, including Bi Bim Bap, a rice dish topped with proteins or veggies of your choosing. While the restaurant offers delivery, it’s good to come in and go through the experience.
When Creperie and Krave food trucks combined forces, Kraverie was born. Located across the street from City Hall, the menu is brimming with traditional Korean dishes as well as ones that have another cultural twist to them. The Korean tacos or burrito and the kimchi cheese fries are big favorites. And if you’re wondering where the French influence is, order the Korean crepe, and you’ll taste the fusion flavors burst in your mouth.
What do you get when you combine Uzbek, Russian and Korean flavors? Honey Bakery and Kitchen. Nestled in McGinley Square in Jersey City, this food spot may be quaint, but the sizable menu makes up for it. You can order traditional borsch, bulgogi, and brownies all in the same place. While it might not be the first place you may think of when you’re craving Korean food in Jersey City, Honey Bakery is the perfect go-to when you want to try something a little different.
