If you know the terrifically food-infested stretch of St. Marks Place that runs from Second to Third Avenues, you know that it packs into a remarkably short distance practically every Asian victual known to man, from shabu-shabu to stuffed bao buns. One thing that’s been conspicuously lacking, however, is a good naeng-myun (cold arrowroot noodles) shop that doubles as a DIY Korean barbecue. With the arrival of Han Joo, those days are over. This branch of the excellent Queens-based restaurant offers just about everything the mother ship does and more, including chicken and shellfish to cook over your tabletop grill, in addition to the ever-popular pork belly and duck.
