Korean Food - Hayward

WLA | Feb 19, 2003 09:21 AM

My wife and I were up for the weekend, (one of our more difficult trips in getting to the hotel on Sat. night due to the Chinese New Year parade, and then getting down to BART on Sunday due to the not so peaceful end to the peace march and the SFPD not letting anyone down to Market from Union Sq.).

We took advantage by going out to dinner at Han Yang in Hayward, (22365 Mission Blvd. 510-886-7762) for dinner on Sunday. In contrast to our regular Korean restaurant in LA,(Dong Il Jang on 8th St.) we find the namul, (small side dishes) to be much better and more inventive at Han Yang. I especially liked the spicy radish, one of those tastes that make you keep asking for just one more dish of it. I also thought that their kalbi was fine, but that the bulgogi was not as tender of flavorful as Dong Il. We had the scallion pancake, which was great and a side order of the pan fried Goon Mandu, which was so-so. It is a real Korean family style place and there were lots of kids. The people who run it are great and they gave us a pot of their spicy tofu soup for free. I love that hot and spicy soup, and since my wife doesn't I basically ate the entire pot, (no flu shot needed after that).

We meant to get to Yank Sing for dim sum, but we ran out of time. We'll be sure to hit it next trip.
