The Osamil experience for Joanna Lin (aka Ready Set Jo)’s new foodie show filming was one of the most unique Korean dining moments I’ve had thus far in NYC; I got a taste of some real authentic dishes each with their own style and twist, including a super badass chef’s cut prime beef tartar with Korean pear, gochujang remoulade, and a freaking QUAIL EGG (that goodness you see in the main photo).
FYI: the only way to start a foodie gathering? Snacks! Lots of snacks! We were gifted with these potato butter Yukon Gold chips with Scottish salmon jelly and honey butter gastrique to get the night going:
As with most things, drinks were had by all. The Signature Osamil Peartini cocktail with Absolut pear, pineapple, and fresh lemon:
Mixed, shaken, and poured to perfection, of course:
Sometimes getting that perfect shot requires you to go out in the streets of NYC (the light is just better, trust me); here’s @nycfoodfomo doing some major work:
A proper night cap indeed, crispy and juicy pork shank with perilla apple salad, spicy radish kimchi:
Live action #yolkporn from my first quail egg experience that was definitely one for the books:

Very important documentation of the seafood platter:
With quite the beer list to choose from, Osamil has tons of craft brew lovers’ favorites including drafts from Brooklyn Brewery, and Fat Tire for some nice pairing:

As you could have guessed, Joanna’s event was as bomb-tasting as it looks. If you’re near Penn Station or Midtown and are looking for outstanding Korean food with happy hour specials definitely check out OSAMIL – and make sure you get that quail egg tartar!
