Hanjan is another new Korean spot to open up and of course, it’s south side. It’s located right beside Izakaya Tomo so you can’t miss it. Sister restaurant to Mama Lee’s Kitchen, I’ve heard pretty mixed reviews but decided to check it out for dessert Sunday night.
Love how Hanjan is open till 2:00am (3:00am on Friday and Saturday!). Finally some legitimate late night hangout spots. It’s a cafe during the day, then restaurant/hang out/karaeoke spot at night.
The inside is hipster but unique (particularly for Edmonton). The umbrella patio sets are a cute touch along with the hanging lightbulbs. They did a great job with decor.
Closeup of their coffee menu options.
Upstairs houses two private rooms for karaoke. The downstairs is even more spacious and has about 5 private booths to sit at. Music is blasting but the playlists were good.
Menu is a one pager with tons of choices: starters, shared, rice, deep fried, wokked, grilled, stir fried and stew/soup.
Drinks and dessert is combined.
Injeolmi bingsu ($12.00)
This bingsu was the only non-fruity one. Topped with rice cake, red bean, condensed milk, pulse flour and sliced almonds. The shaved ice was silky smooth, creamy and the texture was just spot on. The injeolmi rice cakes tasted like homemade mochi. Satisfyingly good!
Will have to come back to try their other options.
