We specialize in Kal-guk-su (hand cut noodle soup), our famous Busan Milmyun, Dumpling, Oyster soup, Bul-Go-Gi with spicy pork or beef topped with rice and so on for lunch and dinner. Don’t forget! Hangari Bossam is our specialty too!
Come and try to be our VIP.
Parking was difficult, but to be expected in ktown. We parked at the Zion Market underground parking the next block, which is free for 90min or 2 hr(?) if you spend a certain amt of $$ at the Zion market. We needed to get groceries anyway so it wasn’t hard to spend the required amt.
Came here ~1130am on a Saturday, only had to wait ~15min so it wasn’t bad at all. A few of my friends who’ve been recommended the chicken noodle soup, which was what I was looking for so of course I got it. It def went beyond my expectation… the soup was well seasoned (a bit thicker broth) and the noodle was nice and chewy. There’s also a good amt of chicken, potato, and squash. The dish tasted like samgyetang in my opinion, HIGHLY recommend.
We also got the spicy seafood noodle soup, but we weren’t as impressed with it as the chicken one. We did see alot of ppl around us get the clam noodle soup, definitely coming back to try it.
My friends highly recommended this place to me so I came to try it.
Wait can be pretty long so try coming early. The interior is nice, quaint, and clean. Service was prompt.
They give barley rice with the side dishes at the beginning. I’ve never had that before so it was interesting and good.
I tried the steamed dumplings which were really good! I recommend to share with your table.
I tried the bossam. It was meh for me. Id rather get it at other restaurants I’ve had it at. Not what I would come here for specifically. It’s a bit bland in flavor to me.
I tried the chicken kalguksu. The noodles and broth were amazing! The chicken was tender. I highly recommend this.
I had clams kalguksu. This was also delicious. My friend told me that the Korean menu has certain soup dishes that can be ordered in an extra large bowl to be shared (cost around $40ish). Useful if people are ordering the same thing. This would be good for 4 people. We had 3 people eating it and we had leftovers.
If you want a nice hearty Korean noodle soup, I highly recommend coming here!
My friend introduced me to Hangari about four years ago, and I’m always excited to go back. I can’t remember how many times I’ve been here, but it’s certainly been a lot. It’s my go to noodles in ktown, and it’s certainly gotten bigger over the years. The side dishes are filling, and the portions are really generous. I often find myself needing to take some soup home.
Something trivial but cute – there’s an amusing sign inside the store that brags about having gluten here, feel free to find it.
I’ve always been to this plaza but never tried this place until today! Would definitely come back more often. Their pork belly was AMAZING. Fresh meat, just the right degree of juiciness and fatness all combined together. You take a big bit with cabbage and dip it in the sauce… man! I could eat the whole thing by myself!
The noodles are very delicious! I’m not even a big fan of seafood, but I loved theirs.
This is my new favorite restaurant in Ktown! The boyfriend and I came here late night on a weekday and there was no wait. Service was great and our food came out quickly 🙂
I got the seafood kal guk su (spicy) and it was SO GOOD! I am usually not a huge fan of noodles and will only have a few bites, but these noodles were delicious! The flavors for the dish were also spot on and wasn’t too spicy.
My boyfriend got the bibim milmyeon (cold) and he enjoyed his dish too. The noodles and flavors again were perfect.
We definitely will be back to try all the other dishes on the menu!
How does it go? When in Rome, do what Romans do…or something like that. Order kalguksu when you’re here. The noodle is so delicious just like how my mom used to make. I miss it so much and eating here reminded me of her (her cooking especially). Chewy uneven texture perfect for soaking up the soup base. We had the seafood one and they don’t skimp on fresh seafood. Plenty to share.
We also ordered cold bibimgooksu, and it tasted great but kalguksu was the main attraction. Two dishes we ordered were more than enough for three people. Just dreaming about the kalguksu as I write this review. Go early before the rush and parking gets crazy.
Btw, they give you free barley rice and sides to make mini bibimbap as appetizer. It also came with mini dish of bulgogi wraps. What’s not to like?
Decided to make a trip to Korea town to check this place out and satisfy me and my friends Korean food cravings.
Needless to say we were all extremely happy with our decision to check this place out!
First off, your whole party doesn’t need to be present to be seated, which is something most busy restaurants in my past experiences don’t allow. I ordered the Yulmu bibim guksu, extra spicy (I really like spicy). The dish itself was very flavorful, the spicy was a bit overbearing once you eat a lot. Be warned!
Overall, would definitely come back!
I underestimated just how busy this place can be. Went for lunch on a Thursday afternoon and found a whole group of people waiting outside. Luckily, I didn’t have to wait more than 5-10 minutes because I was super hungry for these noodles!
I ordered the spicy kimchi kalguksu. The bowlful is huge! It can easily feed two people, or give you some yummy leftovers for the next day. It was served very hot and was still steaming 20 minutes later when I had eaten my fill! The soup came with a lot of clams in it. Just when I thought I’d found them all, I found more. The spice level was just right. And the noodles were thick, firm, and chewy. It was just the thing to satisfy my craving. I’d love to come back to try their dumplings too!
