During a trip to New York City, I had the absolute honor of trying out Hanjan, a modern Korean restaurant. The food was was utterly stunning with contemporary twists on traditional flavors. I'm so thankful for the experience.
I didn't look at the menu so I can't say for certain which dishes these were,
except absolutely delicious. The tofu pictured above was cool, firm, yet
silky and creamy. The sauce on it brought back nostalgia like no one's
For the kimchi enthusiasts, this offering is sure to please. Not only
was the kimchi perfectly executed, the perfectly stacked and aligned leaves were
nothing short of perfect presentation.
Get some skewers. Like all of them. Korean grilled meats some of
my favorite dishes.
This is probably the best seafood green onion pancake ever. The seafood
and green onion were enclosed in crispy wonderfulness. This is like
traditional green onion pancake on crack.
I think these were the spicy dumplings. They were wondeful pillows of
spicy goodness. Eat with the egg yolk to truly experience what it feels
like to be rich.
And more skewers.
And this fried rice was just done well. Really well. There were
little crunchy caramelized bits at the bottom, which indicates you did it
And for dessert, some sorbets and red beans. I was in food heaven when
I tried these. They were slightly sweetened, clean, and refreshing.
Thank you, Hanjan, for the hospitality! I will be back in the future.
