Han Il Kwan

Han Il Kwan

Han Il Kwan is still the place I'll go to with my folks for Sunday dinner and with friends wanting their Korean fix. It gets the highest marks for ambiance; wooden partitioned booths and softer lighting make for a more relaxing meal. And it too throws in freebies including sundubu and pindaedok (fried mung bean cakes flavored with leek or green onion, ginger, garlic and salt). Sample the japchae ($11.95), a peppery dish of sautéed crisp-tender vegetables with beef and vermicelli rice noodles. All of the booths have grills built into the tables. Prices for barbequed meats range from $17.95 for the short ribs to $14.95 for the spicy pork.
