I’m so sad…..yesterday, I was walking home and noticed that the Korean deli on 5th Ave and 13th St had closed. No advanced warning…..Closed! ……”Store for Rent”

Ok, so yea, there are tons of Korean delis in NY, but this one had a special little grandma on the 2nd floor that made homestyle Korean food. It was a ghetto set up with just basically a stove in a 6’x6′ box where the cutest little grandmother stood and prepared food. It was cheap, open really really late, and the Kalbi Tang was the best I ever had (and totally verified by my Korean friend Joey). I’m going to miss my Korean Grandma, who always tried to talk to me despite the language barrier. We never understood each other but I’ll still miss our conversations and definitely her food!
