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.
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
mashed potatoes & rice. Each set meal comes
with soup, a drink (soft drink / green tea) and
little Korean side dishes (kimchi included).

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.
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.
