Affordable Korean Food at HanChon

Wanna know where to get really affordable Korean cuisine? My friends and i went to HanChon in Sri Hartamas and the set lunch there cost RM9.99 nett!

For RM10 (that’s like USD3), you get Korean side dishes, soup, your choice of main course and drink (Green Tea or soft drink). A pretty good deal if you asked me! All of us were very full and satisfied after lunch.

tucked away in Sri Hartamas

HanChon seems to be famous for its fried chicken. Besides the set meals, you can order fried chicken in medium or large amounts (10 pieces or 24 pieces). They have two flavours – standard or hot (which my friends say isn’t very spicy). They also claim that their fried chicken is fried in canola oil which is healthier. HanChon restaurant does delivery of their famous fried chicken.


Okay, now back to our set lunch meals. For main course, you have a choice of:

THE HANCHON SET

HanChon Chicken (Wing / Drumstick) – Fried chicken (wing or drumstick) served with rice, salad & mash potatoes (potatoes + rice = carbo overkill!)

HanChon Cutlet – chicken cutlets served with rice, salad, mash potatoes with your choice of BBQ or teriyaki sauce

THE HANCHON SETS: Special fried chicken, salad,
mashed potatoes & rice. Each set meal comes
with soup,
a drink (soft drink / green tea) and
little
Korean side dishes (kimchi included).


KOREAN FOOD SETS

  • Bulgogi (Beef rice)
  • Dakbulgogi (Chicken rice) (Shouldn’t it be dakgogi?)
  • Bibimbap (Mixed rice)
  • Ogingeo Deobbab (Squid Rice)
  • Kimchibokeumbab (Kimchi fried rice)
  • Sam Gye Tang (Ginseng Chicken Soup), priced @ RM15

I opted for the squid rice thinking it would come with tiny red Japanese octopus. The dish came with lots of cabbage and “squid” in the form of calamari rings instead! Not quite what i was expecting and the dish looked very different than what was shown in the menu. But it wasn’t too bad. The sauce was like tomato sauce and slightly sweet. It was served with a super large portion of Calrose rice.

BURP! Here’s what our table looked
like after we were done with lunch


All in all it was a pleasant experience dining at HanChon. Although this is one of the first Korean restaurant i’ve been that does not use authentic Korean utensils. Yeah i missed the long handled spoons and metal chopsticks. The restaurant is comfortable and air-conditioned (a must in hot and humid Malaysia), and the food is good.

    Thanks Avie!

    닭고기 yes would mean chicken meat but the dish is right though 닭불고기 because ‘bulgogi’ (which means fire meat) refers to the sauce used, not to the meat itself. yes when you say bulgogi you generally mean beef but in Korea it’s common to find other things like kochubulgogi or ojing-o bulgogi.

    just thought i would clarify ;)

    Yeah, I enjoyed my squid rice as well. Yummy and only for RM10, what a steal.

    Mastika, yeah we did check out the one at The Curve. It’s a Korean buffet restaurant called Shilla. I have the card somewhere. Pretty darn expensive, that one.

    @meiruo_chan You are absolutely right. I am quite sure it is halal. But i will double check and update my post.

  11. meiruo_chan

    nice and the price is affordable too. by the way Orchid, is this restaurant served ‘halal’ or ‘non-halal’ food? I think it would be a good help to our muslim friend if you mention it in your post. just an idea anyway.
