Respond to Review of HanGawi
by Gyan Penrose-Kafka
Review: Excellent food, lots of variety and great staff. Updated from previous review on Saturday April 12, 2014 Thinking back to my recent trip to NYC and HanGawi, I must say that the experience at this restaurant was the highlight of my time in the city. From the presentation of the food to the attentiveness of the staff to the wonderful diversity of flavors, textures and aromas, HanGawi satisfied my every need. My partner and I each ordered the Emperor's Tasting Menu, which consisted of multiple courses, with two different items for both the starter and the appetizer, an entré and dessert. While each of the portions was small, cummulatively, everything added up to a feeling of satiety, and a little bit left of the entré to take for later. While the food very flavorful, it lacked the hotness I prefer, but they had an excellent homemade chili oil that added the right amount of kick.
