Two of Parnell’s favourite restaurants Simon & Lee and Han have recently been named amongst the best Korean eateries in Auckland by Denizen.
All-day eatery Simon & Lee offers modern Korean food at its most creative. with a menu that showcases classic Korean ingredients and cooking techniques in a clever, approachable and undeniably delicious way. Favourites include the bulgogi spaghetti with grilled beef, shiitake mushrooms and a glistening egg yolk, along with any of the dolsot dishes (served in a sizzling stone pot). Not forgetting their fried chicken, which is a signature dish for a reason, with flavours like wasabi soy and danger spicy to pique your palate.
Offering its own signature modern fusion of Korean and Western flavours Han has that special something that cannot be found anywhere else. Executive Chef Min Baek’s skills with Korean ingredients are pure genius and the ambience of his restaurant is calm, contemporary and sleek. The dimly-lit space makes for a perfect date spot. Served with eight types of Korean namul and japchae (kumara noodles), it’s a must-try for herbivores and carnivores alike.
