A cook at Hahm Ji Bach Korean restaurant in Flushing prepares Dol Samgyupsal  — Pork Belly barbecue — at the eatery. The first-ever Korean Restaurant Week in New York City runs now through Nov. 3.

It’s all about barbecue and kimchi as the first Korean Restaurant Week hits New York City.

The showcase of Korean cuisine — now through Nov. 3 — will offer prix-fixe lunches and dinners, specials and promotional dishes at two dozen restaurants.

Ten of the participating eateries are in Queens, and most of those are located in Flushing.

“We just want to show how great Korean food is,” said Jihyun Shin, a spokeswoman for the Korean Food Foundation, which is sponsoring the event. “It’s healthy.”

Her group, which is funded by the Korean government, is targeting diners who have never been exposed to the spicy cuisine.

Diners who take photographs of their meals and tag them with KoreanRestaurantWeekNYC are eligible to win a round-trip ticket to Korea.
