If the news of beloved two-storey bar and café Ars & Delecto on Jinxian Lu (sorta) relocating brought concern, don’t stress, it’s still on the second floor and you’ll most likely have to go up for a pre-dinner drink anyway as its downstairs replacement Korean restaurant Halu has been drawing some fairly lengthy waits. Once you do finally nab a table, your patience will be rewarded with a solid lineup of well-executed Korean classics that cover the single-page menu – particularly the sweet and sour chicken and jeon (Korean pancakes) that come with addictive fillings like cheese, potato and bacon or mung beans, kimchi and pork.
