The Only Korean-Chinese Cuisine: Hancham and Bong Ru have merged and will be the only restaurant serving Korean-Chinese cuisine in Hong Kong. Now reopened in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong’s Korean town, the alliance will be the destination where foodie gets K-BBQ, dry-age cuts and other Korean indulgence.

Look & Feel: To treat its guests an ultimate food experience, the house will be serving its food in the dining area that takes up to 10,000 sq. feet. As seen in K-dramas, the restaurant is equipped with smokeless BBQ grill tabletops and dining rooms to host big group gatherings and private family get-togethers. Revamped with a wooden interior, the Korean-Chinese place hosts its guests in a contemporary environment while serving soul food.

On The Menu: Bringing the true Korean flavors to Hong Kong foodies, Hancham and Bong Ru is the Korean cuisine one-stop-shop. The dry-aged meat guests taste at the restaurant is developed by the Microbial Research Center of Ehwa Woman’s University to enrich the cut’s flavor while optimizing the nutrient dense benefits of natural enzymes. And of course, there will be premium Hanwoo (Korean beef) and short ribs marinated in a homemade sauce — it wouldn’t be a satisfying K-BBQ experience otherwise.

Besides, the restaurant is where you get Korean street foods such Jokbal, a tender pig trotters cooked with soy sauce and spices and the fluffy Egg Bomb Souffle made with pollock roe, shallot and melting cheese. For those who are looking for quick, filling meals, the restaurant’s Korean-Chinese offerings including Jjajangmyeon, a black bean sauce noodle, and Jjajangmyeon, spicy seafood noodles, would be as satisfying as they are flavorful.

Great For: Gatherings, group celebrations.

FYI: Hancham and Bong Ru is closed from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm daily.
