The Chef-Owner Of America’s First Michelin-Starred Noodle Shop Dishes On His Best Quality Replica Watches
Though his resume is impressive, having cooked at the likes of Per Se and Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare, Douglas Kim never worked in a ramen shop or at a pasta station. All that changed when he opened the popular Jeju Noodle Bar in New York’s West Village.
Ramen was one of his go-to cuisines when eating out in New York, and it made the chef think about the prominent instant noodle culture of his home country of Korea, where packs of inexpensive ramyun are a staple.
“Why not do a fresh version of ramyun,” Kim thought. “I just went for it.” The result is far from your typical slurp joint. One of Jeju’s signature noodle dishes features paper-thin slices of wagyu floating on a piping hot bath of broth. Submerge the steak with chopsticks for a few seconds and poach it to your liking. Jeju earned a Michelin star, making it the first noodle shop in the states to achieve such an honor.
When he’s not collecting Michelin stars, Kim collects AAA US replica watches. His road to watch enthusiasm started in high school with a TAG Heuer Aquaracer gifted to him by his mother, and the passion grew from there to include a good amount of modern Rolex, including slightly off-beat picks that run the gamut of the Crown’s collections. At one end sits his Sea-Dweller Deepsea and at the other, a platinum Cellini. He tells us about his favorite 1:1 luxury fake watches below.
The Kitchen Watch – Replica Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea Watches
The thing Kim is looking for most when buying for the kitchen is durability. He’s always wondering if this or that tool is going to break down over time, hoping that it won’t.
So it may come as some surprise that he wears nice perfect copy watches in the kitchen. His rationale is hard to argue with: The chef works almost 15 or 16 hours a day, five or six days a week. “If I don’t wear a watch in the kitchen, when am I going to?”
Before the Submariner won him over, Douglas Kim favored what he regarded as “less obvious” watches, including the likes of Panerai. But it was after he decided to try a Sub, back in 2008 or 2009, that he pledged a sort of fealty to the Crown and its legendary quality and reliability. It wowed him, and he’s since gone on to buy a few more top Rolex replica watches. But in the kitchen, it’s currently the super robust Swiss movements super clone Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea watches that gets the call.
Going Platinum – Fake Rolex Cellini Sky Blue Dial Watches
Having already dipped his toes in Lange, Kim was initially thinking of getting a platinum Datograph. But he already had a gold version of the famous German chronograph and a personally important one at that. And besides, it was expensive. He mentioned his interest in picking up a platinum watch to his watch guy, who sent him a picture of the very cheap replica Rolex Cellini watches you see here.
By the time Kim followed up and expressed interest, the Cellini had already been sold. But he got a second chance when the other buyer ended up returning it. Kim says he got a great deal on this standout Rolex, his only platinum fake watches online site to date. Kim loves how under-the-radar it is. He can wear it to formal occasions, sure, but also anywhere he wants to, because it’s the kind of thing that tends not to be noticed except by watch enthusiasts.
