Korea House

Korea House

I can’t count how many times I’ve been to this local joint because it’s just THAT fantastic. Korea House is located at Canon and Victoria in downtown Hamilton. They have very limited parking and sometimes you might be boxed-in in their square lot! Street parking is available or you can park across the street at Shoppers Drugmart. You’ll find Korea House signs at the front of the store but that’s actually their kitchen. The front door is accessible through the parking lot area (around the corner from the storefront).Read More »

Han Ba Tang

I first found out about this restaurant when I was browsing my Instagram feed. What caught my eye were a few things: Korean fusion tapas, pretty-looking cocktails (even though I’m not a drinker), their beautiful light bulb sign, and their decor. What I didn’t realize was their location… not downtown Toronto. I started my mini road trip in Hamilton and made my way to downtown Toronto then to North York. The restaurant is relatively easy to find, only being 2-3 blocks north of the 401. They don’t have a sign outside in English phonetics, just a sing with Korean characters in orange. You’ll see their giant light bulb sign once you peer through the window or walk in the restaurant.

Alirang Korean Restaurant

Alirang is located on the corner of Main St and Locke St. It’s quite difficult to find parking because they only have a few spots at the back. I suggest parking on Locke St and walking over. I’ve been here a few times because they have good service and food. The decor is dated, homey and pink. It’s like eating at home! Once seated, we were served delicious cups of hot tea, corn tea? Most of the time I order the same things, I really need to try other dishes.Read More »
