Haru Haru means day after day in Korean. No I am not fluent in the language but Nicolas, the person in charge of the place, gave me the meaning. Having trained in the restaurant business, he got into Korean cuisine for the good reason that his wife is Korean and his parents-in-law are restaurant owners in Seoul.
On the menu, Dakgangjeong, Pajeon, Haemul jeon, Bansang, Dolsot Bibimbap, Yukhoe bibimbap.
Yes, I know. We’re a little lost.
But if I tell you:
- Dakgangjeong is a crispy fried chicken (too good), either sweet (Chicken leg, yuja sauce, black sesame and soy with marinated radishes) or spicy (Chicken leg, black sesame and Korean chilli pepper accompanied by pickled radishes)
- that the Haemul Jeon
- is a pre-cut Korean seafood and leek cake with soy sauce. The “banchan” (side dishes) are fresh seasonal vegetables.
- is a tray that is always composed of a seasonal soup (see on Haru Haru Facebook page or ask for information at the restaurant), Korean rice and banchan (side dishes.)
- includes Korean rice, soy, carrot, white turnip, mushroom, zucchini, cucumber (or spinach.) and cabbage.
- is a Korean beef tartare with egg yolk served with Korean rice, soy, carrot, white turnip, mushroom, zucchini, cucumber or spinach and cabbage. All the products are processed independently, which provides flavor and aroma by blending together. Possibility to take it spicy Korean or not.
- that the Pajeon is a Korean leek cake, pre-cut with soy sauce. The “banchan” (side dishes) are fresh seasonal vegetables. Likely to change.
It’s a little clearer, isn’t it?
This is the first time I really ate Korean and I thought it was really good. It makes me want to explore more and I will definitely go back to Haru Haru.
