Simjang Pop-Up at Pagu


Simjang brings playful Korean-American cooking to the diners of Central Mass, and on Sunday, October 28th, chef Jared Forman and his team are taking over PAGU in Cambridge to bring this Worcester favorite right to your doorstep. PAGU’s chef Tracy Chang is handing over the keys to the whole restaurant, from the bar to the back of the house, so you can get the complete Simjang experience, from dumplings and smoked pork ribs to homemade soft-served ice cream (chocolate, cinnamon, and shiitake) and tiki-style cocktails like the Raft of Dead Monkeys (Rhum Agricole, Kina Kina, citrus). Check out the full menu down below, and make your reservations through Reserve online here.
