Korea’s Mingoo Kang Of Mingles To Open Hansik Goo This June 2020
After their latest opening, popular vegetarian restaurant concept Miss Lee, ZS Hospitality is launching a new Korean restaurant concept Hansik Goo in collaboration with Mingoo Kang, the culinary talent behind Seoul’s esteemed restaurant Mingles. The new Korean restaurant is set to soft open on June 1 in Central. Mingles currently ranks at number 13 on the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants.
Inspired by the concept of family meals, Hansik Goo takes a youthful and creative approach to communal meals with traditional flavours of Korea. Kang has earned a stellar reputation thanks to his skilful use of seasonal herbs and masterful usage of jang, the fermented soy sauces that are essential to Korea’s diverse culinary heritage. During soft opening of the restaurant, the new restaurant will feature only a tasting menu with the chef’s acclaimed dishes, while Kang will return to Hong Kong for Hansik Goo’s official launch, presenting a full menu of his unique dishes. Guests can indulge in a collection of Kang’s dishes in Hansik Goo’s eight-course tasting menu, featuring dishes with flavours highlighting Korea’s key ingredients such as jang, kimchi and ginseng, paired with Korean wines and coffees.
Hansik Goo’s notable dishes from the tasting menu include dubu wanja (a modern take on traditional Korean meatballs made with tofu, crabmeat and diced courgette, with anchovies, crab stock and pine nut sauce); samgye risotto (a fusion of traditional Koreal ginseng chicken soup and fried chicken); bulgogi (thin beef slices marinated with homemade ganjang, lettuce wrap, served with Korean glass noodles, local mushrooms and chopped onion); and desserts for choice between Omija (sorrel sorbet with Omija berry juice) or Garu (mixed Korean grains ice cream with crispy puffed rice). The tasting menu is priced at HK$780 per person. With options to order extra five dishes individually from an extended selection.
Hansik Goo soft opens on June 1, 2020, and reservations are recommended.
