Korean Food with Surfer 'Tude



Located in Brooklyn’s dining hotspot, Prospect Heights, Tygershark is culinary collisions at its finest. Serving Korean classics with Latin American flair, this restaurant-slash-cafe-slash-retail space is every hipster foodie's dream come true. What began as a series of pop-up dinners in owner Doug Hwang's Williamsburg apartment quickly turned into a brick and mortar. Executive Chef, and Texan, Eduardo Sandoval, creates unique takes on traditional Asian flavors, serving Korean food with a surfer attitude:

Grilled Octopus
Rice Cakes, Deep Fried Bacon, Gochujang, Crema, Pickled Egg

If you’re a surf and turf lover, then this dish is made for you. Served in a gochujang sauce, tender grilled octopus is paired with crispy pieces of bacon and chewy rice cakes for a variety of textures and complexity. Topped with fresh basil to balance out the sauce's richness, this dish is sweet, spicy, and sour...all in one.

Hamachi Sashimi Bap
Grilled Rice Ball, Cured Mackerel, Tobiko, Herb Salad, Gochujang Dressing

Have you been into the poké craze? Tygershark wows with its Hamachi Sashimi Bap, a mixture of traditional Korean bibimbap and the popular poké bowl. This unique dish starts with a grilled rice ball topped with fresh mackerel and tobiko. Combined with the herb salad, the warm, crisp rice and saltiness of the fish is a satisfying balance of carbs, protein, and refreshing vegetables.

Dried Chili Chicken Congee
Peanuts, Dried Chili Sauce, Cilantro, Sesame Seeds, Chili Oil

unnamed (3)

This modern twist on traditional Chinese congee sweeps your taste buds with an unexpected, pleasant toasted flavor. Made with smoky chipotle chilies, the chili sauce is Chef Eduardo's nod to his Texan roots. Pooled on top of the rice porridge, the sauce adds depth and a surprising medley of Latin-American and Asian flavors.

Jjamppong - Noodle Soup
Seafood Medley (Mussels, Squid, Shrimp) Shiitake Mushrooms, Onions, Jalapeños

unnamed (4)

There is nothing better than a hearty bowl of noodle soup when you want one. Tygershark's take on this Korean-Chinese comfort classic is straight up culinary "badassery" at its finest. The ramen noodles replace their traditionally thicker wheat counterparts and the overload of fresh mussels, squid, and shrimp will fill your belly fast, but not before you’ve slurped the entire bowl away.
