We finally decided to try HAAN Korean BBQ in Coquitlam after an intense craving for barbecue meat! We were not disappointed. The restaurant is clean and service is friendly. I like the interior. It also helped that it was well ventilated and you don’t leave smelling like the food itself!
They offer high quality cuts of meat. There is a two order minimum for meats. We ordered Marinated Beef Rib $30 each portion and also the Sliced Beef Tongue $17 each portion. The meats were tender, juicy and well flavoured.
Like most Korean restaurants, it came with a variety of Banchan sides: potato salad, kimchi, pickled radish, etc. I wish they had sprouts and fish cakes though.
Mixed Rice in Hot Stone Pot (Bibimbap) 10: The rice came in a sizzling hot stone bowl with a good mix of ingredientes like sprouts, carrots, marinated pork, mushrooms, etc. I love the crispy charred rice in the end. Make sure you mix in some namul and gochujang!
We can’t wait to come back next time we have another Korean BBQ craving!

Jukkumi jeyuk bokkeum 15: This spicy small octopus and pork is amazingly delicious! Once the plate heats up, the egg will cook and the cheese will melt like fondue! Order Bookeum Bap near the end. The servers will stir fry the rice and seaweed directly on the hot plate for you.
Ori Yukgaejang 13: This spicy duck soup has a subtle residual heat that gets hotter as you drink it. The duck meat is tender and boneless. There are a lot of flavors in this hot soup. A lot are herbal and earthy but so delicious. I would recommend some heat reducing soup or beer to neutralize the heat in your body after!

Departure Portland is a high end restaurant opened by former runner up Top Chef Greggory Gourdet. The restaurant offers a beautiful view of the city being on the 15th floor of the luxury hotel The Nines. It is a quite step away from Nike (Portland is home to Nike ICYMI) and quick walk from where we stayed at Hotel Rose Pineapple Hospitality.
The entrance greeted us with a colorful futuristic aesthetics. Although Departure is Portland’s sky-high retreat, it is still relaxed and un-pretentious. Walk in with your athleisure and button-up – it’s all the same welcoming service.
Starting off the evening with a corner seat near the window we ordered a ginger beer based spicy cocktail and a Portland craft beer. Departure menu focuses on street food tapas for sharing and Asian fusion flavors.
Tasho Macho 12: A Thai chili infused vodka, Thai basil, lime and ginger beer… A deliciously spicy cocktail.
Crispy Pork Belly 13: that melt in your mouth pork belly fat glazed with sweet and sour cherry, ginger, pumpkin seeds. I liked the crispy skin with that tender and fatty belly.
Big Eye Tuna Poke 17: Fresh tuna poke with avocado, yuzu, chili and sesame crisp. Presentation is underwhleming since all the gorgeous poke is hidden by the sesame chips.
Departure Wings 14: one of my favorite dishes of the evening. Semi-boneless wings with all the meat bound on one bone. It has crispy skin, tender moist meat and a glazed with sweet chili.
Seafood and Green Vegetable Tom Kha 26: A subtlely spicy and fiery Thai coconut soup with great flavors of lemongrass, ginger and lime leaves layered with Dungeness crab, rockfish, and shrimp.
Shumai 8: These pork dumplings reminds me of steamed beef balls we typically order at our favorite Chinese Dim Sum restaurant. These shumai were not my favorite perhaps it was too meaty and salty. It didn’t have the textures of Chinese mushrooms nor shrimp to complement. Served with vinegar shoyu and sharp Chinese mustard.
Departure is a great restaurant if you are adventurous and like the idea of Asian Fusion. The view is incredible and beautiful – definitely a must come visit if you are in Portland. If you are visiting Portland here are 10 Things You Need To Know about Portland!

Jeong Ga Nae Korean Restaurants in Coquitlam is one of my favorite local Korean restaurants. It is located inside the same strip mall as Nagano and across from Coquitlam Centre and Delicious Pho and Legend 天府. This tiny neighborhood Korean restaurant is busy and filled with local Koreans. Jeong Ga Nae is clean and service is friendly. There is a good selection of traditional dishes, meal combos and BBQs.
Not sure if you would consider Jeong Ga Nae one of the best Korean restaurants in Coquitlam area. Certainly, we like coming here for our fix of gamjatang (spicy pork bone soup). $30 for a hotpot fit for two. Complete with multigrain rice and Korean banchans – side dishes of radish, fish cakes, sprouts… Kimchi is a side order. So is pa muchim.
Spicy pork bone soup (gamjatang): big hot pot filled with pork bone obviously, potatoes, carrots, zuchinnis and spices. Spicy but not overwhelming.
BimBimBap: Served on a hot stone bowl. This mixed rice is topped with namul and gochujang, a salty soybean paste doenjang.
Stir fry beef: good flavors and served on a hot plate with rice. Another favorite of ours is their Japchae. Japchae is a sweet potato starch noodles with beef isn’t too oily and good portioned.
Everything on the menu is pretty good. But to be honest, we usually just order the gamjatang and call it a night. On a really good night, there is leftovers for lunch the next day too!
