Her Name is Han

Besides an intricate name, they offer picturesque homestyle Korean food and a space reminding of a movie set, a library or just a restaurant from the 1930s. Spicy pork and other Koreatown delights.

Basically, it's a bistro, and though the main drag of the neighborhood, Korea Way, is bustling with excitement, this one is really where it's at—you bet, if people are willing to wait on the sidewalk in the cold to get in. It's easier at lunchtime, when it's cash only though.

Named in honor of the owner Kihyun Lee's mother, it has wonderful KFC—Korean Fried Chicken, along with the braised short ribs and glazed pork ribs, a pancake studded with seafood and spicy short-neck clams with potato noodles. Small plates $10 or less and shareable items are under $25. The drinks are cheap, with $3 for draft Sapporo and $6 for a glass of wine or soju you can really go for it. The lighting is low, a jazz-and-soul soundtrack is playing, and when all else fails, it all comes to a good meal and some old tunes.
