One thing to keep in mind before going to Hanjip is that it isn’t your typical Korean BBQ. If you’re looking for that, then any of the tried and true establishments, Baekjeong, Hae Jong Chon or Park’s BBQ will do the trick.
Don’t come here looking to eat piles of brisket, pork belly and squid. Instead, you’ll have the best experience trying dishes you wouldn’t get at your everyday KBBQ stop. Try things like the beef poutine, curly fries topped with slides of bulgolgi, marinated onions and bonito aioli. Or go for the uni steamed egg with salmon roe. Don’t forget the bone marrow corn cheese. Enjoy these with watermelon soju – probably one of the craziest punch bowls I’ve seen. You’ll get half a large watermelon that’s been scooped out into small round pieces. The waiter pours soju into the bowl and tops it off with fruity pebbles and pop rocks. How fun is that?
