The new take on tarts

When Chef Jiho Kim first introduced the Yubutart in one of his pop-up stores, it took New York by storm. The small bite of rice, tofu, and unique flavor combinations captured the hearts and stomachs of New Yorkers near-instantaneously. After experiencing such viral success, Chef Kim brought the Yubutart to DDOBAR where it was highlighted as the star of the menu.


What is Yubutart?

Our Yubutarts                       draw inspiration from traditional Korean yubuchobap [유부초밥] :

yubu meaning “Fried tofu” and chobap meaning “Vinegared rice” ;                      together, yubuchobap is vinegared rice stuffed into fried tofu pockets.

Although some might argue that yubuchobap is already the perfect bite, our vision is to take something beautiful and make it even better. With his fine dining pastry experience in one hand and his limitless creativity in the other, Chef Kim conceived of the Yubutart: the way that tart pastries act as vessels for a variety of stunning flavor combinations, Chef Kim uses yubu to hold and deliver pockets of delectable and divine tastes. 


With our staple Studio Chef Menu, experience thirteen carefully cultivated courses packed to the brim with succulent flavor: perfect for a date night, a gathering with friends, or even a catered event. Or, alternatively, order individual Yubutarts off of our menu to experience them on their own.
