If you’ve ordered from Cookunity you know that one of the main differences between them and other companies offering prepared meals is that they are led by their chefs. CookUnity is not just food delivery, it’s a community of your city’s best chefs that all exist on the same menu, allowing you to try different cuisines and prepared meals every day of the week. We have so many favorite chefs at CookUnity, but one of our all time favorites is Chef Esther Choi—and we’re going to tell you why, via her meals.

Bulgogi Japchae

This dish is a knockout. It’s stir-fried glass noodles with marinated beef and charred vegetables, and it is perhaps one of the best prepared meals we’ve had. This is a very popular Korean dish and it’s also unique with glass noodles made of sweet potatoes. It’s a savory, sweet and nutty flavor bomb and you will want to order it over and over again.

This meal is one of our favorites on the CookUnity menu, and we’re pretty sure it will be one of yours too. A plate full of Korean BBQ-inspired goodness, Chef Esther pairs her signature spicy Gochujang-marinated pork shoulder with sweet-and-savory caramelized cabbage kimchi. It’s satisfying, feels like a healthy, protein-rich meal, and it’s a reason alone to believe CookUnity is the best prepared meal delivery in NYC.

Sweet and Sour Chili Shrimp Bowl

One of the best shrimp dishes on the CookUnity menu—and there are many—these sweet and sour shrimp are based on kkanpung saewu, a popular Korean-Chinese dish that’s a crowd favorite. Large shrimp are stir-fried with charred bell peppers, onions, and baby corn in a slightly tangy, savory, and sweet sauce with just the right amount of heat. The stir fry is served on a bed of fluffy white rice for a bowl full of deliciousness!
