Before opening their modern Korean restaurant with crystal bricks, traditional drum décor and mirror ceiling, Hankki had invited their community to come up with creative name ideas for the venue.


The result was announced this March, and the winning name became ‘Hankki’ (한끼) which is a Korean word, meaning ‘one meal’.


Hankki blends modern ideas with traditional Korean flavours to deliver a memorable ‘one meal’ experience. Hankki pushes away boundaries and invites their customers for a culinary journey to experience South Korean flavours with a twist.


Weather you try their ‘Korean Army Stew’, their signature ‘Black Pink’ charcoal fried chicken or one of their handcrafted ‘Soju’ (Korea’s national drink), Hankki’s innovative modern Korean flavours will never leave you disappointed.

Hankki have an amazing selection of modern Korean food, including some more traditional, such as ‘Kimchi Tofu Soup with Rice’ and very innovative and Insta-worthy, such ‘Black Pink’ charcoal fried chicken with dragon fruit sauce.


If you’re not sure how the dishes look like or what size they are, just check them on Hankki’s online food gallery.


Here’s what we ordered:


Golden Budae Jjigae with Chicken


It’s a huge portion of rich Korean stew. It comes with chicken slices (you can choose beef or pork instead of chicken), soybean, Shin Ramyun Noodles, cabbage, Kimchi, pink mushroom, oyster mushrooms and courgette slices.

They cook it right in front of you and once it’s ready, you serve it for yourself.

It’s moderately spicy. Perfect in the chilly weather of Winter.


BBQ Stone Grill Spicy Pork


Grilled by one of the team to perfection in front of you and served on lettuce bed with Kimchi and spicy sauce.

The thin perfectly seasoned meat slices melt in your mouth. Matches very well with the spicy sauce and the Kimchi.


Black Pink Fried Chicken

‘Black Pink Fried Chicken’ is one of Hankki’s signature dishes. This show-stopping culinary masterpiece is a combination of succulence of charcoal fried chicken with an exotic twist: pink dragon fruit sauce.

Make sure you have your camera ready because you don’t want to miss the super TikTok-able moment of pouring the vibrant pink sauce on your charcoal fried chicken pieces.




Soju at Hankki London

Hankki glittery ’Soju’ drinks are a must-try if you really want to crown your modern Korean experience.


‘Soju’ is Korea’s national drink, originally made from rice, however, it changed over time. Today ‘Soju’ is made of grains and starches, such as tapioca, barley, or sweet potato.


What we see in the market today is the so called ‘green-bottle Soju’, however, Hankki has taken a step further and offer ‘Soju’ in four different flavours with different alcohol contents, served in the most modern way.


All types of ‘Soju’ are served in an elegant, branded bottle with colourful edible glitter.

We tried the ‘Pink Bag’ mocktail which was served in the most eye-catchy glass! The mocktail was a flavourful blend of homemade Calpis, fresh strawberry, and Aloe Vera juice.
