Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of busy shoppers in Henry Street, the quiet Great Strand St. may not dazzle you with luxury and excitement. However, it is home to the authentic Korean restaurant, Han Sung, an Asian market that hides a delicious secret at the back.
The back is always lively and packed with Koreans, which is always a good sign, but also with your average Dubliner looking for something sweet and simple that isn’t going to break the bank. The restaurant contains tables for groups and counters for those who enjoy eating in solitude. Take note there are charger plugs at the counter which isn’t too shabby!
The kitchen is run as a deli and you can only pay by cash and you’ll receive a number they call out when the dish is ready to collect. The staff are friendly and can recommend some of their most popular items such as Bibimbap, a Korean staple that costs only 5.90! If you’re Lee Marvin, try their 5.50 deal where you can choose three items along with a heap on rice which will fill you up no doubt. Don’t be shy about trying something new and exciting that will set your taste buds alight. Tuck in!
