This restaurant the Murray Hill neighborhood of Flushing specializes in their namesake dish, chik naengmyun, cold arrowroot noodles. But what makes this preparation truly special is the base of irresistible home brewed beef broth, yook soo, which they expertly ply into a variety of classic Korean dishes. It's not a particularly fatty or unctuous broth, nor is it salty or overly redolent of aromatics and herbs. Instead, this moo juice conveys clean beefy flavors which elevate anything it touches. It even comes in a teapot, meant to be consumed during the meal, complimentary along with your standard assortment of banchan. Yes, hot beef tea—simultaneously low-brow and brilliant, and you'll want to drink teapot after teapot of this stuff.
