Token Philly is a hot new casual Korean spot located right in the heart of Northern Liberties (1050 N. Hancock Street at the Schmidt Common’s). This casual dining and to-go spot features fun dishes such as their Korean wings (spicy or Korean BBQ), rice bowls and noodle bowls, bao buns and dumplings. They even offer to-go beer as well!
After the first week of opening to the public, I was invited along with other local foodies and food bloggers to preview their menu. During our visit, we had the pleasure of meeting the chef at Token, Yumee Yi. She shared a few fun facts about Token! The baked goods are made from family recipes that have been passed down and that the kimchi is authentic. It’s not store bought. She makes it fresh and learned from the best, her mother. It’s great to know that you’re eating from a place that takes pride in the quality of their food and makes it with love!
The tasting event started off with a yummy variety of dishes! We were served glass noodles (chicken and beef), bao buns (chicken and beef), fried gyozo (chicken), Korean bbq wings and a variety of donuts. One of my favorite dishes that I sampled was Token’s beef glass noodles. The noodles were perfect and the beef was seasoned well. Their glass noodle bowls also come with a fried gyoza in each order.
If you plan a trip to Token, you have to try their wings! They have a great crunch when you first bite into them. I hate wings that have rubbery or soft skin. When you want something fried, we all expect a great crunch. You won’t be disappointed with the wings at Token. They’re cooked just right and have loads of flavor! It’s definitely hard finding great Korean BBQ wings in Philly. Heck, it’s hard finding great wings, period. If you want my personally opinion, there’s nothing like homemade food. And at Token, you can always expect something made straight from the heart, cooked with love and goodies made from old family recipes. And that’s something that can’t be duplicated. If you’re having a craving for some yummy glass noodles, bao buns or even some Korean bbq wings, please stop into Token! Thank me later!
A huge thank you goes out to Token for hosting this tasting event. Everyone had a ball and the food was on point! We appreciated your hospitality and I look forward to enjoying many more visits in the future!
