Korean Food / Casual Dining

The menu in Hagawon is real simple. It only has 3 main dishes including Sujebi, Kongguksu, Dolsotbibimbab. The names of dishes might not get to you close. They are not well-known worldwide, but very popular in Korea. Genuine Korean food. Hagawon just focused on these few items and got fame on its savory tastes. Its food flavors stay harmonized, not fluctuating with over seasoning. It serves considerably delicate food with reasonable prices.

Entering the restaurant, I see the very Korean style tables on the floor. They don’t have any western table with chairs. It should feel uncomfortable for foreigners not accustomed to sitting legs cross-folded. You’d better get used to it soon. The entire atmosphere must be okay if you are not that disagreeable to new culture. 

I feel obliged to order as soon as I sit around the table. The staff just comes to take it. More embarrassingly, They don't have English menu. But, fortunately, I don’t have few options of menu with Sujebi, Bibimbab, and Kongguksu. It does not take so long to choose one.

While waiting, I cut Radish Kimchi with scissors aside. You might feel awkward cutting food particularly with scissors on the dining table. It’s not that weird in Korea to use scissors at the table. You should enjoy sniping it chattering with your friends. New experience. Later on, Bibimbab I ordered is served by the cart. 

Bibimbab looks awesome. Steamed white rice at the center, and various colorful vegetables lay around. Putting hot pepper paste(Gochujang) is my duty. I can add proper amount of it as your own. I top it on the rice centered. It looks greater with red circle on it. Then, I start mixing them altogether. The sauce tints all ingredients mouth-watering red.

The taste of Hagawon bibimbab is indescribable. All different and characteristic ingredients are harmonized. Flavor not extinguished by mixing. They all alive stay all together distinctively. A sort of orchestra, too much fact puffing?

Be Aware! The amount of pepper paste(Gochujang) is a significant factor that influence the whole dish. Be careful not to put too much. Add it little by little tasting through it.
