Janchi Janchi is Another Option for Korean Fast Food & Buffet
The folks at Kum Gang San are having themselves a busy year. They’ve recently expanded their operations to Rock Center with the opening of New York Kimchi, and now they’ve re-purposed their ground level dining room at their 32nd street location into a fast food / food court / buffet style restaurant called Janchi Janchi (translating to ‘feast’).
The food offerings closely resemble Woorijip – there’s a steam table ($7.99 / lb) that offers cold and hot versions of Korean staples as well as spins on Western fare. The back wall is lined with refrigerators stocked with drinks, a variety of kimchi and side dishes.
There are also packaged food to grab and go – kimbap, mandoo, and other snacks.
A cramped sushi counter prepares sushi, rolls, as well as hot items such as ramyun and kimchi bokkeumbap (fried rice).
Although we’ve not tried the food – early adopters, please feel free to voice your thoughts in the comments – it’s always nice to have extra options for lunch.
