  • Han Il Kwan Korean Restaurant
    Four Things to Know About Han Il Kwon Korean Restaurant Korean food has been on an upward swing for a few years, and so has Han Il Kwon. A neighborhood favorite, the restaurant serves plenty of traditional Korean barbecue, rice bowls, and noodle dishes. Read on to learn what else makes it a standout. An entree is almost never just an entree here. Sure, you may have ordered the bibimbap or the short ribs, but don’t be surprised when the waiter shows up with 11 plates. Many main dishes here come with a variety of banchan, small sides and mix-ins that range from kimchi to pickled veggies and mung-bean pancakes. Modesty schmodesty. If you don’t speak Korean, you may not have known that Han Il Kwon loosely translates to “No. 1 Korean Restaurant.” It’s a place to take out-of-towners. Or, more accurately, out-of-towners seek it out. It’s not uncommon to see packed tour buses parked in front during lunch a few times a week. Just call ahead if you happen to be short on time. Some of the magic happens outside the kitchen. Some of the fun finds here are the hot pots, in which you choose your ingredients and cook them in boiling broth at your own table. There’s also a selection of meats that you can barbecue on an inset tabletop grill.
