Today, I'd like to introduce Hanchu, a popular restaurant in the Apgujeong area. My friend wanted to taste the fried chilly pepper here at Hanchu. I believe this place would be appropriate for a year-end party.
Even though the restaurant was very full when I arrived there after work, I was able to get a seat inside.
Look at the photo, it was crowded and noisy. The mood at a year-end party is like this.
I think that fried foods are their specialties, but they have a wide variety of other options as well.
From what we could see at other tables, people were eating a lot of chicken, tteokbokki, and fried chilly pepper. So, we placed an order for Hanchu tteokbokki, Deep-fried chilly pepper, draft beer, and Sprite.
Snack like what you'd find at a karaoke was served with a side of pickled radish.
Deep Fried Chilly Pepper 19,000 won
In comparison to the pricing, the serving size was a little small, but the food was great and served hot and crispy as if it had been just cooked.
Simply cut them using scissors.
When you cut it open, you'll find a meaty center that makes each bite delicious.
Hanchu Tteokbokki (rice-cake) 18,000 won
The tteokbokki had the perfect balance of spice and sweetness and the flavor is great, even the little kids will enjoy it.
The size and thickness of the rice cake were impressive. The portion of tteokbokki was considerably larger than the portion of fried chilly pepper.
Big-size rice cake
glass noodles included
The fried chilly pepper we ordered is also very tasty when dipped in the tteokbokki sauce.
It's in a pricey part of town, so the prices are high, but it has the atmosphere of a pub that may be in a movie or drama, so I imagine a lot of people go there because of the welcoming ambiance.
Since the pepper fries were so good, I was confident that the chicken would also be excellent. I'll get some chicken next time.
