New Sunnyside Restaurant Serves Live Octopus, Lobster and Squid

June 7, 2010 Staff Report

WARNING: The video below contains some stomach churning footage. Not for queasy westerners.

A new Korean restaurant, Sik Gaek, debuted last Wednesday at 49-11 Roosevelt Ave., Woodside.

This is a big step for the owner who has a well-established restaurant by the same name in Flushing.

The Sunnyside/Woodside operation is its first venture outside of Flushing. T Chung, the manager, said the Sunnyside outpost will be an exact replica of the Flushing restaurant.
