Craving Korean Food? Find The Most Delicious Meals At These Spots In Hong Kong

Are you craving a Korean barbecue? Hong Kong has got you covered! From unassuming takeaways to sleek temples of Korean cuisine, K-kitchens litter the city. However, Hong Kong’s best Korean food spots are mainly about the three Bs: bibimbap, bulgogi, and barbecue. And don’t get us started on Korean fried chicken either (it is the best).

From swanky experience to a low-key, hole-in-the-wall, these spots come through with all the standards and family-style Korean cooking. In addition, our list of restaurants passes the test for unapologetic authenticity. So, roll up your sleeves and get stuck in.

Korean food in Hong Kong: Best restaurants you need to try!

Could there be a better combination in Korean culture in just a name? Bongchu Jjimdak has blown up the Korean food scene in Hong Kong since the time they opened their doors for foodies. They specialise in the jimdak, or Korean braised chicken (in a soy-based sauce with vegetables and glass noodles), which is not to be missed. They serve generous portions, and the value for money is excellent. We are big fans of the restaurant – especially for the authentic Korean delicacies.

Korean-style food with an Italian accent, anyone? If that sounds like a perfect match, MOYO is calling your name. Think chewy rice cakes tossed with sauces such as carbonara and pesto. However, if you are not too adventurous, stick to the standard K-style version made with gochujang. Rice cake aside, the menu features an array of Korean specialities, including fried chicken and deliciously satisfying sea urchin rice. Uhm, yum?
