Who can resist sizzling BBQ beef, hot off the grill, wrapped in crisp lettuce accompanied by savoury, sweet and spicy side dishes? Here are five of the most delicious Korean BBQ joints in Hong Kong…
Han Ah Rum Korean Restaurant
6/F, Causeway Bay Plaza 1, Causeway Bay – 2877 7797
Probably the best Korean food on the island – the bibimbap (stone pot rice) has the perfect crispy crunch and the good-sized private rooms are ideal for private gatherings.
1/F, Tung Lei Centre, No. 22-24 Cameron Road, Tsim Sha Tsui – 2367 1087 / 2367 0942
A cheap and cheerful Korean BBQ spot in Kowloon – nothing fancy décor wise, but tasty food and an English menu which always helps!
6/F, 8 Russell Street, Causeway Bay – 2838 9550
Located opposite Times Square, this funky restaurant does a great BBQ, and the fact it’s often packed with locals is a testament to its authenticity.
Lee Fa Yuen Korea House
2/F, The Pemberton, 22-26 Bonham Strand, Sheung Wan – 2544 0007
Home-style Korean cooking in Sheung Wan. As the weather heats up, try their cold noodles – a refreshing lunch or dinner option.
Sorabol Korean Restaurant
Shop 4B, 4/F, Miramar Shopping Centre, 132 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui – 2375 2882; 17/F, Lee Theatre Plaza, 99 Percival Street,, Causeway Bay – 2881 6823; 5P125 Passenger Terminal 2, Hong Kong International Airport, Chek Lap Kok – 3559 1111
A veritable institution in HK and often packed with Korean expats, Sorabol is one of our favourites. Not too expensive, the food is authentic and reliable. BBQ short ribs are fantastic.
