Hankook Sarang information
The Hankook is that rare combination of authentic taste and good value. The spicy Korean main dishes come with crunchy kimchi, salad, soup, dried fish, sweet beans and green tea. Alternatively, fire up the barbecue for some bulgogi (barbecued beef), cooked at your table and eaten with lettuce, or try the good-value kimbap (vegetarian rice rolls).
If you are new to Korean food try the bibimbap – rice and vegetables in a stone pot, to which you add egg and sweet chilli sauce and mix it all together. The service is friendly and there’s a choice of floor seating or pleasant alfresco garden dining. It’s down an alley near Tamas Spa Lounge.
