Koreatown’s miss KOREA BBQ expands its menu and launches imperial menu items historically inspired by Korean royal court cuisine.
New York, NY. June 20, 2014
Miss KOREA BBQ makes a pioneering move into the world of Korean royal court cuisine and introduces a series of imperial-style dishes to their menu. The newly added menu items are not commonly served by other Korean restaurants, and allows a rare opportunity to truly experience Korean royalty.
Inspired by historically accurate royal court cuisine from the Joseon Dynasty, the imperial dishes—boasting unparalleled authenticity—are served on specially shaped brass dishes and include Sinseollo, a hot pot specialty, and Gujeolpan, a platter of nine delicacies enjoyed as bite-size wraps.
Diners are bound to feel like kings and queens throughout their meals while enjoying imperial dishes at miss KOREA. As splendid traditional décor surrounds all around and the old kings dining table is brought back to life, the experience is about much more than merely eating, but being immersed in a day in the life of Korean royalty. While variations of the dishes may have rarely but occasionally been available at Korean restaurants in the past, the royal experience at miss KOREA is one of its kind.
The imperial menu items are exclusively available at miss KOREA SUN the Second, where the interior decorations pay homage to the Joseon Dynasty. Modern is fused with traditional throughout the furnishings, plates, and brassware, while the walls are painted with scenes from an old Korea.
Authenticity is highly regarded and maintained throughout the imperial menu items, all served on traditional brassware known as Bangjja Yugiconsistent with what was used to serve food to Korean royal families. Both dishes were actually enjoyed by kings of the Joseon Dynastys royal court. In bringing true genuine Korean cuisine to the New York scene in a manner never before seen, miss KOREA goes beyond just serving Korean food and expands to sharing Korean culture and history.
Sinseollo, especially representative of Korean royal cuisine, is served as a main dish in dinner courses. It is noted for the shape of its circular brass container, which acts as both a pot and brazier. The hot pot includes a variety of seafood, meat, and vegetables in broth, and like all Korean barbecue, is cooked at the table.
Gujeolpan is featured as an appetizer item in miss KOREA SUNs brunch and dinner courses, and is enjoyed in bite-size crepes. Its round platter is divided into nine compartments, with eight evenly sized sections surrounding the center—each filled with a different meat or vegetable—and one circular compartment in the middle holding a stack of palm-sized wheat crepes.
