Heungboo & Nolboo: Buford Highway

posted on February 28, 2007 at 8:13 am

If you have been following my blog, you know I am a bit addicted to Korean food. Along with Japanese and Vietnamese, Korean is one of those ultimately satisfying and seemingly healthy cuisines I cannot get enough of. Since I am addicted, I am always searching out new places and Atlanta has plenty to chose from. My visit to Heungboo & Nolboo (formerly Harue Cafe) was prompted by a tip that they might have some Korean Fried Chicken–something I had been craving ever since the New York Times’ article on the dish. I enlisted a couple of friends to go try it out for lunch. Huge menu, but no fried chicken! We did order a variety of other dishes and had mixed luck.

Panchan: Good mix of salty, spicy, sweet. They appeared to be freshly made. I really liked the daikon and the peppers.
Seafood pancake: Not my favorite. I prefer the pancakes to be plain. The seafood was chewy and just not pleasurable to eat.Pork stew: Sorry I don’t have the Korean name for the dish, but my friends really enjoyed the dish. I though it was just OK. Lots of mustard seeds, pork ribs, and potatoes. I would recommend you have this before anything with heat.

Spicy squid with noodles: My favorite dish by far. Good flavor to the sauce and the squid and noodle textures were great together. If I went back, it would be for this dish alone. I am not saying it is stupendous, but a yummy Korean noodle dish worth ordering if you are there.

Verdict: I would say try the place, because the menu is so big. I did not find anything destination-worthy. I will update this post with further visits should I go.

    My wife who is Japanese had better luck with Japanese than I did with English with the staff. This place may be too Asian for the average Atlantan. My wife enjoyed it but thought it too expensive.

    Just came across your blog recently through AtlantaCuisine and Running With Tweezers. I’m in the Atlanta area as well (duh.) After reading this entry, I ran over to Buford Highway to try Baden Baden Hof’s Korean fried chicken, but it’s a pile of rubble now. Oops! I am not good at paying attention…. Hope you find your Atlanta KFC and tell the world!

    Korean Fried Chicken found!

    Love Letter, next to Super H in John’s creek.

    Interesting pizza coming out of the kitchen, but I was all business for fried chicken so I didn’t try the pizza.
