Han Corea

This place is legit. Han Corea is in the middle of nowhere; an industrial hidden gem. It reminds me a lot of Won Jung Gak (in Edmonton) in terms of whereabouts.

We came on a Friday evening around 7:45pm. The place was packed so we had to put our names down and waited about 15 minutes to snag a spot. The inside is small but charming. Some Korean talk show had all the Koreans inside enthralled. Good to see majority of the people were Korean.

The hours are exceptional. Open till 1:00am everyday except Sunday (12:00am).

Service is pretty solid. There’s unlimited water, tea and rice but that’s self serve.

Just walk up to the counter and help yourself. Wish the water glasses were a bit bigger.

Menu is actually smaller than normal. Lots of items were blocked out.

Banchan
DSC02061Really impressed with all the banchan that they brought out. 8 different types total; bean sprouts, marinated egg, daikon and seaweed, soy sauce dipping sauce, mushrooms, salad, kimchi and cold style pancake.

Seafood pancake (#18) ($14.95)
DSC02062Green onion, vegetables and squid. Massive for the price! We didn’t even finish half. Crispy outside texture and tasty filling.

Spicy chicken bulgogi (#12) ($17.95)
DSC02065Chicken slathered in spicy red pepper paste with onions underneath. Wasn’t that spicy but chicken was tender and flavourful.

Bulgogi stew (#31) ($43.98)
DSC02064Stew with bulgogi, tofu, enoki mushrooms, sliced carrots, onion, green onion, rice cakes and cellophane noodles. To quote L, the broth was unexpectedly delicious.

DSC02063

Very peppery and aromatic, great depth and flavour. The bulgogi was very chewy. Different but still good. The menu says it’s good for 2-3 people but you can easily share for 4. Delicious.

Solid Korean spot. Would come back for sure. Especially for some late night eats.
