Korean Gastronomy: Lunch at Harenohi in Shizuoka City!


Service: Very kind and smiling
Facilities & equipment: Overall extremely clean. Very clean and modern washroom
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: Authentic Korean home cooking. Entirely non-smoking at lunch!


A new Korean restaurant opened in Shizuoka City and as the owner is a friend I just could help visiting at the first lunch served there. It opened on Monday but lunch is served only from Wednesday to Saturday!


The owner has spent some time in France and loves the language!
“Chez 和韓”/”Chez Wakan” means that they serve Korean food prepared by the owner’s wife while the owner himself looks after the establishment in the evenings from Tuesday to Sunday serving Japanese food!


The menu is clearly posted!
Don’t worry about the language. The lady of the house and her staff are very kind and patient! They will explain everything!


Inside is absolutely spotless clean!
And it is entirely non-smoking at lunch!


This is what I ordered for my first lunch there: “Kuppa” lunch set including ginseng!


Cold pine nuts soup to attenuate the hot (it is not hot actually!) food!


A succulent and so healthy plate of appetizers!


Cold nalta Jute (moroheya in Japanese) and yam salad.


Kabocha ball and shijimi, a typical Korean fried appetizer.


Violet cabbage salad in sesame oil, okra and kinpira gobou/fried and spicy burdock and carrot.


The “Kuppa” main dish! (also called guk/국 and tang/탕 in Korea!)


With real ginseng!


Beautifully cooked chicken that is so tender that it slides off the bone. Note the date!




And hot cinnamon tea!
High satisfaction guaranteed!

Looking forward to my next visit for dinner!
