It’s hard to go wrong when you start out with an electric blue drink. We tried three of the cocktails among the group, and they were all tasty. I’m not usually one to drink cocktails during dinner, but the sweet worked with the spicy dishes.
Thank you to our server for not letting us over order. If you’ve read my blog before, you will know it annoys me to no end when we are told to order more and then end up completely stuffed and with a large check. We will probably differently next time because we ended up with a plethora of rice cakes. They were delicious and light, so it wasn’t a big deal.
Corn and potato croquettes were crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside – a winning combination. Korean-style BBQ Vegetables made for a solid side dish, and Rice Cake, Fish Cake, Noodles, Beef, Sausages, Assorted Seafood & Vegetables in Spicy Fish Broth rounded out the meal. The soup was flavorful and full of surprises (ok, not really surprises because each ingredient is pretty much in the name except for the breaded and fried hard boiled egg), but made the table extremely hot. It would be ideal to order on a cold night. I would have been fine without the beef because it was tough without much flavour.
All in all, the meal was good, with no real misses, and we will probably try it again in the winter. In our group of four, each had a cocktail (would have ordered either another cocktail or wine, but the food came out fast and furious – no waiting here) and more than enough food for a total check of $170. For modern Korean, Atoboy is better, but Her Name is Han provides a reliable option that won’t break the bank.
