Two words: Korean BBQ.
If you have not tried kbbq, I'm prettttty sure that you have not lived. If you love all things meat then I would recommend an all you can eat place, because places like Hwaro or Dae Jang Geum are rather expensive. The photos below were taken at Seoul House (Russell Street, CBD).
The Korean BBQ experience is much better if you go with someone who actually does speak Korean, but you're safe choosing beef bulgogi (marinated meat) and chicken! There are many small side dishes which includes potatoes, picked vegetables, lettuce and kimchi - I hate spicy food but kimchi is the perfect kind of spicy so you must definitely try it (kimchi is fermented veggies)!!!
The KOREAN BBQ experience is like teppanyaki but better. Teppanyaki is Japan's way of saying 'come in and let us cook expensive meat in front of you and splash oil on your face by accident'. Korean BBQ is Korea's way of saying 'come in and let us fill your stomach with flavoursome meat but grill it yourself because it's more fun that way'. For those who have eaten this will most definitely agree that it is a fun, fulfilling and absolutely DELICIOUS way of eating lunch or dinner.
Best served with white rice and wear clothes that you're not afraid will smell because although fuming meat smells amazing, it isn't when you walk out. Seoul House was okay - you eat your moneys worth and they even gave us zucchini soup which I larve!
Seoulia in Box Hill, Hwaro, Viking 92 in Chadstone and this little place we discovered near Melbourne Central (I don't remember the name) are fantastic places to treat your taste buds to!! I'll blog about them sometime soon but I don't want to bombard you with Korean BBQ places when there are so many other restaurants to share :)
