Cheap Eats 2018: Gom Tang E

An enormous cauldron of simmering broth signals you’re in the right place at this sole Korean spot in the mostly Vietnamese Eden Center. Come here for the hot and cold soups. (We’ve found better mandu and barbecue elsewhere.) Sul leung tang, a milky broth that diners season at the table with salt, spices, and (our favorite) kimchee juice, is liquid comfort—and a feast when garnished with hulking beef ribs. Bring a group for one of the generous hot pots such as spicy seafood-and-tofu, which servers leave bubbling on tabletop burners. Also good: Sausage-and-noodle hot pot; stir-fried squid; naengmyeon (cold noodle soup).
