Healthy and Hand-made, A Unique and Natural Take on Korean Food
Dadam Restaurant in Manhattan’s Korea Town bills itself as a purveyor of healthy, fresh Korean dishes. With nearly 20 years of catering experience, owner Ms.
In Sonn Park is an expert in preparing a variety of healthy ingredients. Her handmade delicacies employ natural ingredients for seasoning and color, with no trace of MSG to be found anywhere in her kitchen.
Ms. Park’s fascination with healthy food stems from necessity: her mother passed away at 50 years of age due to cancer, so she became particularly concerned about healthy eating. “I used to have a number of ailments. I would get these blisters. I started to eat kelp root. Gradually these blisters went away. My doctor told me that I had built up immunity. Eventually I learned that kelp root has many nutritional benefits. It could quickly cleanse the body of toxins; it is also good for the skin. So I use kelp as ingredient in many dishes.”
Indeed, by looking at Ms. Park, there is nary a wrinkle of her face. One can hardly tell she’s 66 years old! She attributes her youthful appearance to her healthy diet of natural ingredients.
Tri-color Potato Noodle
All of the noodle at dadam are made by hand. They offer three kinds of noodles: potato tri-color noodle, whole wheat burdock noodles and whole wheat kelp root noodle. The translucent,
orange, cream and green strands of potato noodle really attract attention, and they are served in an enticing, aromatic broth. In the mouth, the noodle is chewy and flavorful; and the rich broth lingers on your palate with its fragrance.
"This may appear to be an ordinary bowl of noodle, but it contains a lot of healthy ingredients,” Ms. Park points out. “The orange noodle is colored with carrot; the green noodle is colored with mint. As for burdock and kelp root noodles, we grind the roots of burdock and kelp roots to mix them with wheat flour.”
A dadam Creation: Cheese Sautéed Squid with Three Color Crystal Rice Cake
While spicy squid is a common Korea dish, Ms. Park added her unique twist with the addition of cheese. The taste of cheese moderates the spiciness. Putting the squid and the rice cake in your mouth, you get to simultaneously experience spicy, sweet and fragrance. It is quite a wonderful sensation.
