Two representatives of the food mafia descended upon Koreatown's newest star-import Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong last night, to offer their blessing. David Chang and Rich Torrisi were spotted dining with Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong chef and Momofuku alum Deuki Hong. The restaurant is a chain from South Korea, and while there is already an outpost in Flushing, this one is operated by the original Kang Ho Dong, a Korean comedian and former wrestler, and is the chain's States-side flagship. The menu's pretty straightforward and simple, but early diners report that the beef quality is much higher than the typical places piping out smoke on 32nd Street, and this place is already packed.
