Han restaurant review: Metro Top 50 2018by Metro
Han restaurant review
Metro Top 50 2018 restaurant Han in Parnell does modern Korean with polished service.
At Han, the signature barbecue dish comes out with a small charcoal brazier on which to cook your wagyu: it’s at once authentic and elegant. The restaurant is small and dark, with pools of light; the service is polished and there’s a great wine list. Barbecue aside, the menu is refined and thoughtful, featuring dishes you’d expect to find in a much more formal environment than this. Recently, we delighted in a dish of venison yukhoe (tartare) served with cashew, seaweed powder and crispy anchovies; we also loved the “military stew” featuring chorizo broth, house vegan kimchi, oxtail and sago.
What it offers Good for vegetarians / Set menu available / Free-range chicken and/or pork, wild-caught prawns and squid / Gluten-free available / Shared-plate options / Bar / Outdoor seating / Craft beer selection / Wheelchair accessible
A favourite dish Beef galbi, caramelised beetroot, grilled kimchi, pumpkin seed and gochujang sauce.
