Her Name Is Han
17 East 31st Street
b/t 5th & Madison Aves
Her Name Is Han has been on my list for a few years now, and I'm not really sure why I haven't been before. So I was really excited when it arrived for my birthday dinner last week. Adam did an awesome job ordering and everything was delicious!
Banchan: A variety of side dishes that came included with the order
The kimchi was good, but the rest didn't really do it for me. I'd say FORGET IT, but it was free, so it's worth trying.
This had such a great taste, and even being delivered, it still had a nice crunch to it. Just wish we could have gotten it with the poached egg on top, but that probably wouldn't travel so well! GET IT
Bibimbap: 7 kinds of seasoned vegetables and egg over rice
This was good, but didn't stand out compared to the other dishes. It's nice as a vegetarian option, so I wouldn't totally FORGET IT.
KFC (Boneless): Boneless Korean fried chicken with radish pickle and sweet & sour sauce
I'm sure these would have been much better fresh out of the fryer, but they lost most of their moisture in delivery. FORGET IT
Rice Cake: Sautéed rice cake, shishito pepper, and kabocha with yuzu gochujang sauce
I have never had a dish like this before. The rice cakes were dense and chewy, the squash was so tender, and the sauce was incredible. GET IT
Corn and Cream Croquettes
These were amazing. Creamy on the inside, very crunchy on the outside. They didn't strike me as typical Korean flavors, but it was delicious. GET IT

Nine years ago (gulp), I had a long stay-cation, and thought it would be fun to try a lot of new restaurants with cuisines from around the world. If I couldn't travel abroad, at least I could eat like I was. So I started a restaurant list I called " Around the World (Without Leaving the 5 Boroughs) ." Fast forward to 2020. COVID. Quarantine. Ugh. Minus a handful of daytrips, I've been in NYC since it all started. And since there's no prospect of traveling any time soon, I figured now was the perfect time to start a new restaurant list..."Around the World: Quarantine Edition." Hoping this will help me feel like seeing the world, or at least tasting it, all without even leaving the couch! Plus, it feels good to have a reason to venture away from my standard neighborhood spots. I'll be working on filling in the 50 most popular cuisines from restaurants that offer takeout/delivery in Manhattan. Click through to check out what I ordered, photos, and
Thai Villa Flatiron 5 East 19th Street b/t Broadway & 5th Avenue Website • Yelp • Facebook • Instagram (Clockwise) Pad see ew with vegetables - FORGET IT A lot of Yelp reviews said that this was a great dish, and much better than your local Thai spot's pad see ew. But this was pretty bad. It was somehow way too garlicky and bland at the same time. Pak mor puk (vegetable crepe dumplings) - GET IT These dumplings are really purple! The filling was pretty standard, but the presentation made this great. And the dipping sauce was delish. Pad Thai with chicken - GET IT Pad Thai is another standard Thai dish that can be hit or miss, but this one was really flavorful. Curry puffs - GET IT These were incredible. Definitely hand-made, not frozen, very tasty, and very filling. And (clockwise)
La Pizza & La Pasta Eataly - NYC Flatiron 200 Fifth Avenue at 23rd Street Website • Yelp • Instagram • Facebook Truffle Cena Per Due - 3 Course Eatalian Truffle Dinner I spent longer than I'd like to admit looking into dinner options for New Year's eve. Waaaayyy too long! I somehow stumbled upon this prix fixe menu from La Pizza & La Pasta from Eataly, and it seemed like a lot of great dishes...and a great deal too. It came with the choice of two appetizers (they didn't use an Italian word for this course HA), two entrées (secondi), and one dessert (dolce). (Counter-clockwise) Burrata: Liuzzi burrata, Urbani black truffle, olive oil, and Maldon salt So so good, but just wish it came with some bread or something else to accompany it. GET IT Crostone ai Tartufi: House-made wheat bread, Calabro ricotta, Urbani black truffles, and honey This was delicious, but it could have used a little more honey. Silver lining of ordering in is I got to add some of my own! GET
