Hansik Goo Chef Steve Lee on Fine-Dining Korean with The Delish Guestlist

Hansik Goo Chef Steve Lee on Fine Dining Korean with The Delish Guestlist

Korean-born Steve Lee wants to bring Korean cuisine to new heights with his restaurant Hansik Goo in Hong Kong. Existing as the sole Michelin-Star awarded Korean restaurant in the city, Steve arrived in 2020 to elevate his home countries cuisine under the mentorship of Chef Kang Min-goo, head chef of Mingles, Seoul.

At Hansik Goo, Steve approaches his menu embracing the philosophy of spring-focused seasonality in ingredients, to use produce and proteins sourced by hand and with love. He says his grandmother’s way of cooking inspired the modern takes produced in his restaurant.

In April 2023, Steve was glorious in retaining his one Michelin Star at the Michelin Guide Ceremony Hong Kong & Macau 2023, alongside winning the Young Chef Award, recognising his efforts in the industry. He chats with The Delish Guestlist podcast to share his vision of bringing modern Korean fare to the spotlight.
