A hip and welcoming spot offering comforting Korean fare, Sunhee’s Farm and Kitchen [95 Ferry St, Troy, NY 12180] is a great place to try the cuisine for the first time.
The etsy looking décor is simple, clean, and cheerful.
Order up at the counter. The food comes on a metal tray and you are given metal chopsticks, reusable instead of the throwaway wooden chopsticks you see so often. There is a small menu and we decided to order something familiar and something new. The mandoo dumplings were crisped to perfection and had a delicious savory mixture inside. The lotus roots were strange and new to me, but actually quite tasty marinated in a soy based sauce with a nice texture. The spicy dipping sauce was a great addition.
For mains I went with the bibimbap which was a rainbow of a dish. Purple rice and the whole gambit of crunchy yummy veggies. The accompanying home kimchi was more mild than I have tasted previously, and a lot more agreeable to my palate. Jeff went for the spicy pork seasoned with garlic, peppers, sesame seeds, and a red pepper sauce. He loved the flavor and the heat! If you find that you can’t finish your entire plate, disposed food goes to the farm to be used as chicken feed and compost. There is a wall stocked up with Korean grocery items if you want to take any goodies home!
