The one cuisine that is seriously lacking in the city is Korean food and Heng Bok which is tucked away in Bandra is the only restaurant that specialises in it. If you are looking for a few Chinese dishes or Hakka anything then this is not the place for you. It is not a very large restaurant but it is popular with each table having its own inbuilt pit for a table barbeque. It goes without saying that a meal here is incomplete without experiencing the Korean Barbeque and you can choose any meats or vegetables of your choice. Our advice is to go beyond the usual suspects of Bulgogi, Bipimbab and Japche and try their Korean Spicy Seafood Noodles or even the Korean Hot Pot.
A blessing for Korean community residing in Mumbai ‘Heng Bok’ is the city’s first standalone restaurant catering exclusively Korean food. Housed in the Bandra Talao vicinity the restaurant satisfies the taste buds of Korean food enthusiasts. Although the restaurant is lacking in décor front the management has invested all its energy in the kitchen.
