Since I haven’t tried too many Korean dishes (I usually stick to gimbap or bibimbap), I figured I would finally try Momojein. Helmed by Korean Chef Lim Hee Won (who is incredibly sweet and down to earth, and is well known in Korea for being on a reality TV cooking show), Momojein offers diners a modern take on a range of traditional Korean dishes. Chef Lim Hee Won has recently introduced a handful of new dishes to Momojein’s menu that I had the chance to try.
If you’re feeling bored of the typical western brunches around Hong Kong, look no further than Jinjuu’s modern-Korean weekend brunch to liven things up. With a large semi-buffet of delicious Korean treats like kimbap and their to-die-for Korean Fried Chicken, there’s something for Korean food-lovers as well as those who are looking for more Western-infused dishes. Enjoy the semi-buffet only, or, if you’re feeling quite ravenous and thirsty, you can opt to add on a main course and a dessert platter, and/or Jinjuu’s free-flow package (you’ll be in LKF, after all..). Jinjuu offers a good value brunch with an inviting and open atmosphere, and a good variety of modern-Korean fare.
Foodie and Foodpanda have teamed up to bring the food-lovers of Hong Kong (AKA everyone) The Good Food Tour, focusing on a different theme for each tour. This time around, we tried three Korean restaurants in Central: Seoul Bros, JANG, and TaKorea. Each establishment offered its own take on traditional Korean fare that was incredibly satisfying and may have even converted some us kimchi-haters to kimchi-lovers.
After taking a tour around the beautiful Changdeokgung Palace in Seoul, be sure to head to the back to see the Huwon, or “Rear Garden”. Today, it’s widely known as the Secret Garden and secret it is! You can only enter the Secret Garden on a guided tour, so be sure to time your visit wisely. During the Joseon Dynasty, this garden was built for the sole use of the royal family and the women of the palace. The Secret Garden at Changdeokgung Palace is an extremely green, peaceful, and charming place to explore for a few hours.
