Hooni Kim at Danji

About Hooni Kim

Hooni Kim is the chef/owner of Hanjan and Danji. Koreatown might be a mainstay in New York City dining (and we’re happy to have it). But even while we get our fill of rice, noodle, and barbecue staples, chefs like him are quietly leading a revolution, bringing Korean food to a higher plane on American culinary shores with bold flavors and an emphasis on the quality of ingredients.

"It’s Wednesday which means Yori Chunsa’s cooking at Sionwon Orphanage. Our first dinner of 2018 was prepared by @osteria_matinee and chef @byung_hyun___k. Nothing beats pizza and pasta in the winter!! If you are a restaurant that wants to participate please email me as we’re planning our year schedule in the coming weeks. #project맛남 #요리천사"

"Dinner at home. Fermented soybean stew aka doenjang jjigae. Using Japanese wagyu beef really brings out the sweetness of the doenjang. #된장찌개 #newyear #2018 #eathealthy"
