A cozy little spot in the Herald square area, Hanbat provides diners with traditional Korean favorites in an intimate setting. Prices are reasonable and it’s open 24 hours.
“If I’m having a whole other ethnic moment, I’ll do Hanbat right in Koreatown. It’s this fluorescent lit, low on ambience but totally authentic Korean food. They do this spicy seafood bean curd soup, or stew, I think they call it. You’re sweating by the time you leave but it’s the thing that I love if I feel a cold coming on. I feel like I burn it out of me with this because it’s incredibly spicy and delicious. And their bibimbap is great too.” – Pilar Guzman (Editor-in-Chief, Condé Nast Traveler)
