Mok·yo·il

​목요일

Mokyo, a playful way of saying Thursday in Korean.

​abbreviation: 목 (木, mok, “Thurs.”)

 

Mokyo, a cozy nook in the heart of the East Village, and playful way of saying Thursday in Korean, is the sister restaurant to Thursday Kitchen from Chef Kyungmin Kay Hyun. Mokyo offers an array of Asian inspired tapas that blend flavors from Chef Kay’s childhood and travels across Spain and South America.

Understanding the inevitable loss to grandma and mom’s traditional dishes, Chef Kyungmin Kay Hyun has found a perfect balance of Asian twists and dishes from her travels to ignite nostalgic flavors yet something unfamiliar and pleasant with an Asian flare.
