Han Il Kwan on Balboa


#1

I have a chance to have lunch there soon. Is it as good as everyone says? Is there anything in particular that’s especially good? Thanks!


#2

The fish cakes in their panchan is my gold standard.


#3

What do you usually order?


#4

I haven’t gone there in a few years but at any Korean BBQ place I usually order spicy pork and/or bulgogi.


#5

It’s a long time since I’ve been there, but I liked it a lot.

One thing worth mentioning: they appear to have a deal with one or more tour bus companies, because I often see buses depositing big groups there. Not sure if or how that influences your decision, but I figured it’s good to know.

Han Il Kwan was okay the only time we ate there (maybe a year ago). We left with a “meh” feeling about the place (I don’t remember what I had now.) I prefer Muguboka (on Balboa). The panchan is stellar.
