The second restaurant of Mingoo Kang, who is responsible for the decorated Mingles in Seoul, Hansik Goo serves modern fine-dining Korean cuisine that remains rooted in tradition while also being playful. Hansik Goo takes its name from hansik – meaning Korean food – and goo, short for Mingoo, as well as sikgoo, which means family. Serving one tasting menu with the option of add-on choices, the restaurant’s samgye risotto 2.0 is based on Korean chicken soup dish samgyetang, reinterpreting it as a chicken and duck roulade stuffed with song-yi mushroom, with ginseng chicken and rice soup drizzled over the top. Of course, Korean fried chicken is available, served smothered in a yuzu and garlic sauce.
