Hangook Kwan - Closed

1261 Castillons Arcade Plaza Creve Coeur, MO 63141 | Creve Coeur | 314-878-8893

Location Description:

Also known as Korea House, the restaurant offers everything from basic kun man doo (dumplings) and bulgoki (Korean barbecued beef) to more exotic stuff such as elaborate soup dishes based on tripe and intestines. There's also plenty of pan chan, a selection of side dishes in small round bowls, including bean sprouts lightly dressed in sesame oil; lightly sauced seaweed; the ubiquitous kimchee, pickled cabbage liberally dosed with hot red pepper; and a preparation of dried squid with overtones of ham or bacon.
