Hang Joon Kwan pricing?

Warthog | May 2, 2006 06:25 PM

A week or two ago, there was a thread about a new place in the Route 40 corridor that had taken over the old Silver Dragon location - Hang Joon Kwan, according to the thread (see link). Some friends and I went the other night, but upon scanning the menu, we were quite surprised by the pricing. Everything, even the most modest tofu or veggie dishes, seemed to be priced noticeably more than the sort of price point we would expect in that setting - as a ballpark figure, say $5 premium on up. In other words, the setting was "hole in the wall ethnic" with pricing on many items that seemed more in line with "upscale".

My friends were sufficiently puzzled and put off that we went elsewhere that night, and I was given the assignment to post and find out if there was an explanation - huge portions, full dinners including extras that weren't apparent, pricing based on the assumption of "for two", or some other rationale for the seeming disconnect between their pricing and the typical range one would expect from that sort of restaurant. If anybody who has been there has any reports on how they stack up on "bang for the buck" and what might explain the seemingly anomalous pricing, it would be appreciated.
