Shilla Korean BBQ Restaurant, Little Korea, New York

When you have to feed 8.3 million people three times a day you get pretty efficient at it. Eating in New York can be a little like 'get 'em in, get 'em out'. Where Australians like to languidly sit through a meal over a few glasses of wine New Yorkers want their food at their table even before they've ordered. Nearly every eating establishment from high end to low end whizzes out a bread basket and iced water while you're stilll peeling off your layers of winter armour. The 'check' arrives before you've eaten your last bite. It takes a bit of getting used to.
Seeking a hit of spicy Asian food we made our way to Little Korea located around East 31st St bet 5th and 6th Avenue. This is a superb strip of authentic Korean delights from the freshest dumplings to at-your-table BBQs.
This lunch was a very languid affair.....
