  1. Give me Carolina or Texas BBQ any day !

    1. Y’all shouldn’t knock until you tried it!

      1. Thanks for knowing whether or not I have tried it.
        You are so, so smart

  2. Ridgewood has a huge Korean population so this is going to be a slam dunk!

  3. We need a real good Jewish deli in town, so I can get a real sandwich.

    1. This times 1000 !!!!!

    2. A good Jewish deli would be awesome, along with a bakery. Surprised there isn’t already one with so many Jews in Ridgewood.

      1. Ho-Ho-Kus Bakery is as good as it gets. Have you tried them?

        And it Kosher Nosh in Glen Rock too far for you or do you not like their food? Most people rave about their sandwiches.

  4. He’s the real deal, this is not your mama’s Korean barbecue.
