We had dinner at Han Mi Jeong Korean Restaurant this past Tuesday. Han Mi Jeong is located inside the Richlane Mall on Leslie north of 16th in Richmond Hill. I had always wanted to try out this small Korean restaurant after passing by it in this mall.
There weren’t too many people here on a night with a freezing rain warning. The staff seemed to be Korean and there was a Korean show playing on the TV.
I ordered a classic Korean dish, the Bimbimbap with Beef while Ken ordered the Gamjatang. There were six types of banchan served — kimchi being a common one but the broccoli and pickled pear were out of ordinary. The banchan was pretty good. I especially liked the vermicelli one. Their kimchi was spicy enough which was a good thing. I also liked their bean sprouts; they were salty enough for my taste. 🙂
My Dolsot Bibimbap arrived with a clear soup with green onions in it as well as a bottle of spicy paste for me to add to the hot stone bowl as needed. I mixed all the ingredients (assorted vegetables like carrots, mushrooms, spinach and fried egg) together and the purple rice that came with it (usually white rice is served in a bimbimbap). The bibimbap was good. I wish there was a little more beef in it though and I thought that I could have eaten a little bit more. The portion might have been a little small for someone else.
The Gamjatang smelled so good and I really liked the spice level of the soup as well as how smooth the pork meat was. Yum!
The prices were reasonable here and I wouldn’t mind coming back in the future to try some more dishes.
