The Dish:

At Hahn's I usually get a steaming pot of udon soup or a ginormas plate of bbq something with a heaping side of rice, but I thought I'd step out of my comfort zone and try the Kung Poongy pork sandwich, mainly because on the menu it had an exclamation point after it and I'm known to have a rather serious bond with said punctuations. Also it said kimchi (!!) which made it a must. I actually was so busy that I decided to pick it up for a quick take-out lunch and I was happy to feel how hefty it was when the waitress handed it to me. At home, I found my sandwich jammed with delicious bbq pork, a hearty fried egg, kimchi and marinated bean sprouts, along with a fresh green salad and tangy miso dressing. The variety of flavors was fantastic and left me feeling ready to take on the rest of the day's work.

Key Ingredients: BBQ pork, bun, fried eye, kimchi, cheese, marinated cucumber and bean sprouts, greens, miso dressing

The Place:

Hahn's Hibachi is one of my dad's favorite places to take us all out for a family dinner. It's cozy and warm and I always think of it as a place to go on a cold night because so many of their dishes just warm you up or come on a sizzling hot plate. All their bbq options are amazing, but for something a little lighter, they also have a soba salad (my mom's fave) that's served room temp with their famous miso dressing. Nommmy!!

Other Menu Musts:

I usually get a steaming pot of udon soup or a huge plate of bbq something with a heaping side of rice.
