A new restaurant opened just near our apartment building, Khan Korean Casual Dining. It has a slogan, “Happy Together”.
It occupies two floors of a villa and I must admit, it’s cozily designed. Lots of tables but the low lights and general ambiance gives you the feeling of privacy.
The only thing I didn’t like though is that they allow smoking INSIDE the air conditioned areas where there are families and pregnant people (like me!). However, this doesn’t only go for this restaurant. A lot of other restaurants in Ho Chi Minh City are like this. They have no regard for children or pregnant people and allow smoking in the restaurant. It would have been okay if they have defined the smoking and non-smoking areas — but alas, they don’t here.
Side story. I always eat at Scoozi for lunch. I love their pizza there but almost always, I find myself running out of the air conditioned area to the outside eating area because smokers are allowed inside. Even when I wasn’t pregnant, I really can’t take the smell of smoke. I’d develop a cold after being exposed to cigarette smoke. Now that I’m pregnant, I develop asthma. 😦 Even “katol” smoke!
Anyway, back to Khan…the black and red theme was executed throughout the restaurant with wooden tables that complemented it well. It has a relaxing atmosphere and even if I’m not a Korean foodie, I didn’t feel intimidated going in.
The menu is in both Korean and English which was terrific and the photos that went with it helped me a lot when choosing what to order! Kudos to the food stylist and photographer!
As usual, I was too busy eating that I didn’t note what we ordered. I only remember a few things… like hubby’s order of Bulgogi. This isn’t sweet like the Bulgogi I was used to in my Kamirori days in Quezon City. 🙂
Fish and rice set —
Spicy rice — I forgot what this is called…
This one tasted good and is called Tsukane.
I love barbecue! My Skewer Platter was delicious! 🙂 It had chicken, chicken heart, pork, and winter mushrooms wrapped in bacon! I’d come back for this! 🙂
The food price is reasonable and I promise you it won’t cost you an arm and a leg!
