Han River Restaurant

Han River Restaurant, a tribute to the Han River in Korea, is a tiny mom-and-pop restaurant with a few tables that serves up good Korean basics in Brookline.

The gal bi ($10.95) comes with a generous side of steamed rice, kim chi and cold boiled bean sprouts with sesame oil. We ordered the "deluxe" size, which is an added half portion (good for sharing between 2 people) that costs $14.75. I've been here 3 times and the gal bi has been consistently good! These beef short ribs were always well-marinated and cooked to perfection over direct flames right in front of you. Their chap chae was only average (not enough vegies or beef), so we wouldn't order that next time. I'll be returning soon, if just for the gal bi.
