At Hansang, the Grandstand, guests can indulge in a variety of Korean culinary delicacies in the Han Jeong Sik course meal or the BBQ set at a value for money price of $45/ pax (usual $90/ pax). In the BBQ set, be treated to 5 types of beef including the Wagyu fillet, Wagyu Brisket, USDA Prime Ribeye, Marinated Beef Short Rib and LA Beef Ribs in addition to a selection of Pork Belly, Loin, Jowl, Collar Meat as well as Marinated Pork Rib.
The spread starts off with an assortment of side dishes that is refillable. Homemade kimchi and pickled vegetables are the hallmark of this Korean family restaurant. After which, tuck in to a dish of Japchae followed by a Bean Paste Soup.
The Japchae was lightly fragrant with sesame oil and always a beauty to behold.
However, the Bean Paste Soup was a touch salty for my liking, but I would attribute it to the main ingredient itself being heavily fermented and naturally salty. Still, good enough for that hearty aftertaste especially on a cold night.
Hansang uses a dual grill featuring both charcoal and gas that aims to add flavour to the meat without compromising cooking time.
I found the BBQ meats to be nicely cooked, tender for some and generally pleasant and well flavoured for all. A side of vegetables are available to wrap the meats in.
The stone pot rice will be the staple to the entire meal. Prepared and cooked in the stone bowl at very high temperatures, the serving releases a good amount of steam from the mixed grain set that features healthy ingredients such as purple rice, barley, red dates, sweet potato and carrots.
A feature from this dish is that after scooping out the rice, hot water is usually added to the crusty bits left all over the pot to make a soothing broth that will cleanse the palate after the sumptuous meal.
Guests visiting Hansang at The Grandstand will be able to enjoy the special promotion of both the BBQ and Han Jeong Sik sets at $45/pax. For the Han Jeong Sik set, 6 main dishes including Beef Bulgogi, Pork Bulgogi, Grilled Mackerel, Jokbal (Pig’s Trotter), Bossom (Boiled Pork Belly), and Sweet and Spicy Pork Rib will be served up. The dishes I tried were generally decent, making the promotional price well worth at an introductory taste of Korea. But perhaps the best part of the entire meal is to see your table filled with the various Korean dishes that is almost like what you see in those Korean traditional dramas on television.
Thank you Hansang for the invitation.
