Not a noodle shop, hipster hang, or fresh tofu parlor, Hanjoo may be the first full-blown Korean restaurant to hit the East Village, and certainly the first to assay the St. Marks dining strip. The place is a branch of a respected Flushing establishment, and offers a complete menu that runs from tableside barbecue to fiery soups that boil in chafing dishes as you eat them to dumplings and bean curd dishes. In common with Koreatown spots, there’s even a nifty lunch-box special that includes soup, rice, main course, and an amazing array of the small appetizing dishes called pan chan. And you’ll be asked if you want more when the original collection has been eaten. This is a restaurant for big appetites.
