Korean Cook-up (Hanguo Banfan)
韩国拌饭
9am – 9pm
5 North Guojia Bridge St. (Near South Gate of Sichuan University)
郭家桥北街5号
The search for a great, affordable bibimbap, that classic Korean claypot dish of rice, meat and vegetables that has satisfied lunchers on the go from Seoul to Seattle, has gone on for quite a while in Chengdu. With some of the more established Korean restaurants upping their prices to 20-30RMB or more per serving. Bibimbap/Korean food enthusiasts around the city must be furiously hunting for more affordable mid-meal stopovers. Enter Hanguo Bangfan, located close to the south gate of Chuanda, which offers an 8RMB variety that, while it won’t win any awards in the authenticity department, comes close enough to ward off any complaints.

This small Korean-Chinese restaurant, lacking though it may be in telephone services and accoutrements, is strong on enthusiastic staff and economy, brings in hungry students by the pair, eager for one of the restaurant’s many individual rice bowl options. Beyond the bibimbap (石锅拌饭 shi guo ban fan), all dishes stick within 7-8RMB, ranging from the fresh but salty fresh fish (wu xiang hei yu) to tasty battered pork strips (jiao yan liji) and Korean egg-wrapped rice (han shi dan bao fan) and curry chicken (kali ji). The noodles in red sauce, (la chao nian gao), were surprisingly good, the thick, sausage-shaped noodles tasting slightly like a softer type of crispy rice.

Sushi (8RMB) and a variety of soups (12RMB) are also available, while the most expensive items on the menu are the fruit flavored cocktails (12-38RMB). The menu, while in Chinese, does contain extensive full-color pictures. Service is speedy, and expect to pay between 7-8RMB per person. Not recommended for large parties or fancy dates, but ideal for a quick, delicious Korean-with-Chinese-characteristics lunch in a hurry.
