korean restaurants hong kong - jang

JANG
Jang means ‘sauce’ in Korean, and the sauces are what make this restaurant special. Jang makes each and every sauce in house from scratch, making sure all raw food is marinated for at least 48 hours before cooking. This ensures that all the food is positively packed with We love the more traditional ways of Jang, but the dim lighting and décor create a cool contrast that makes it feel more modern.

JANG, 18/F, The L Place, 139 Queen’s Road Central, Central, Hong Kong, 2412 0002, www.jangrestaurant.com

korean restaurants hong kong - hanjan

Hanjan
In the heart of Hong Kong’s party district you’ll find the newly opened Hanjan, a modern Korean bar and restaurant. You wouldn’t expect it from the décor, but the food and drinks scream Korean flavours. It’s the perfect place to just stop by for a drink too. Try one of the homemade cocktails like the Kimchi Fizz or Kinro Spring and munch on their Korean nachos topped with Kimchi and bulgogi. Check out our recent review here!

Hanjan, G/F, 4-5 Wo On Lane, Central, Hong Kong, www.facebook.com/HanjanHK

heart-black

There are tons more Korean restos to try in HK, so if you’re looking for Korean cuisine outside the Soho/Central bubble or something more budget-friendly, keep your eyes peeled!

Noteable mention: There may be no set restaurant for this foodie fave, but be sure to always be on the look out for the next pop-up with Sook! Founder Mina (and our recent That Girl!) is an absolute genius when it comes to create delicious Korean dishes.
