Going out to eat is a great opportunity to try something new, spend time with friends, and take a much-needed break from making your own dehydrated astronaut meals. Dabble in the art of restaurant patronage with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Korean fare and drinks at Boka.
Boka wins the affections of cold-hearted taste buds with a well-seasoned Korean menu bursting with soups, salads, and hot entrees made from the freshest ingredients. Warm up your chopstick fingers with the Emperor rice cakes with skirt beef ($8.95), or accelerate toward a plateful of kimchi pancakes anchored by napa cabbage, onions, scallions, and carrots ($6). Crispy-chicken lovers can elope with their dream mate after settling into a heaping plate of well-seasoned house specialty BonChon chicken ($8.95–$19.95).
Located in the East Village, Boka welcomes guests with a warmly lit casual dining space enriched by dark woods and twinkling tea lights. With exposed brick walls and exposed ceiling beams, diners receive a friendly reminder to lay bare feelings of love toward spouses, friends, and Bob Saget circa 1990.
