Free Korean Tapas Alert For Monday

If you’ve been wanting to try Chom Chom (the upscale, out of the ML price range Korean place on 56th btw. 5+6th) but didn’t want to shell out the cash, you’ll want to mark Monday (12/13) on your calendar.  From 2-4:30pm they’ll be giving away a free tasting of their dumplings and kapas menu (that’s “Korean tapas” in case you wondering).  There are 22 items on the “Kapas” menu including  tofu pizza, tuna tartare, and bo ssam.  Freeloaders, prepare to engage.

50% off Fancy Korean Food: Chom Chom, the fancy Korean joint on 56th btw. 5+6th, isn't anywhere close to being in the ML price range... but today's $30 for $15 Groupon will get you closer. It doesn't work on their lunch specials, but you can still use it at lunch for the rest of the menu.

“Modern” Korean Hits Midtown North


I like Pro Hot Korean (on 56th btw. 5+6th), but I was still pretty excited to hear in the forums that a new Korean place had opened on the same block. It’s called “Chom Chom”, but sadly it’s “modern” Korean food (which is code for “expensive”).  Even the lunch specials are all $14 and up.  You can splurge if you want… but I’ll probably just stick to my old dolsot bi bim bap standby.  (Unless, of course, they start offering a $10 lunch special!)
