This Asian-fusion lunchtime pitstop is making the return to the office worth it

Returning to work with a case of the January blues is never easy, and those first few days (weeks?) back in the office are always the toughest. Luckily, some good news from one of our favourite Korean restaurants, Han, has lifted our spirits right when we needed it the most. Little Han, the restaurant’s weekly, street-food favoured pop-up, has welcomed the new year by announcing permanent opening hours during lunch times. Now operating Wednesday to Saturday from 12pm-3pm, (instead of Tuesdays only), we’re able to treat ourselves to a bite of this delicious action three days out of the working week, and that’s enough to have us flocking to the office like never before.

Korean Fried Chicken (with pickled daikon, house mayo and Korean chicken sauce)

Specialising in playful street-food while still retaining Han’s refined, expertly-crafted qualities, Little Han is the perfect spot to indulge in an elevated experience on a short time frame (and a smaller budget.) Forget your usual lunchtime rituals, because here, no two days have to be the same thanks to its extensive list of tasty morsels. Whether it’s tacos you’re craving — served up as tofu, salmon or beef variations — or some crispy pork belly, a batch of slurp-ready noodles or a bite of Han’s renowned KFC (Korean Fried Chicken), you can bet that each midday visit to this Parnell hotspot will offer something unique and memorable — now that’s something worth getting out of bed, and heading to work, for.
