Hanwoori Korean Restaurant in Burnaby is popular for their Korean BBQ Set meals. We came here on Mother’s Day and they were all booked up with reservations, but they still told us to show up early at 5pm as there would be seats open.
There is some ventilation in the restaurant, but it isn’t very powerful. If you are dining here, don’t wear your best clothes as they will smell. All the tables here are booth seating.
We went with Combo B, which serves 4-5 people. This comes with:
- prime beef ribs
- sliced beef
- sliced chicken
- spicy pork marinated in house special BBQ sauce
- deep-fried pork and vegetable dumpling
- stir-fried vermicelli noodles with pork and assorted vegetables
- beef bone broth
- steamed rice
- 5 complimentary side dishes
The deep-fried pork and vegetable dumpling came out first and it comes with 6 pieces. Crisp on the outside and savoury on the inside.
The stir-fried vermicelli noodles with pork and assorted vegetables was delicious and it has dominant flavour of soy and sesame.
All the meat arrived in one huge plate.
They add butter to the BBQ grill plate and begin placing the prime beef ribs first.
As we waited for the meat to be cooked, we nibbled on all the side dishes.
The grill does burn after awhile, so make sure to ask the staff for a new grill. We changed ours about 4 times in total.
We ordered the seafood pancake to add some more to our meal. It was good and had lots of ingredients packed inside. The way that they cut it, there ends up to be 16 pieces.
Overall, it was a good meal, but we stunk like BBQ afterwards. Every single piece of clothing was smoky.
