Last night, I was surrounded by Koreans (things and people). We had a short meet up with one of our Korean buddy who comes here for exchange in our uni. Didn’t expect will see one of them here, most went to Brisbane and Melbourne. We took the opportunity to catch up and he brought along two of his Korean classmates. Refreshed my Korean language a bit, just a bit ;p.
Then, half way through the meeting, I got an invitation for Korean dinner from my “long lost” friend. Of course I agreed! I thought I will never hear from him again after what happened 2 months back. In fact, we managed to cooked dinner 3 nights ago at his place. Yummy! Also, it’s great to finally get to cook in a nice, clean, and spacious kitchen with gas stove instead of hotplate.
Anyway, we had problem choosing which Korean restaurant to go near my place. First, we went to check out Koreajung and found that they do serve kimchi jeon. Then, we decided to check out another Korean restaurant before deciding.
We went to the one near the uni and they did not serve kimchi jeon yet my friend’s main aim is to have that. He’s been talking about it since I got back from Korea. Ended up after quite a bit of discussion in this second restaurant after sitting down checking the menu, I told him we better go back to Koreajung at 13 Leigh Street which we checked out earlier on.
The food in Koreajung is quite expensive, the atmosphere suggested that too. Oh well, I’m not the one paying, I’m not complaining ;p
Left: Potato jeon, complimentary by the restaurant. I think I know how to make this, I once accidentally made pancake like this and tasted like this but not with potato *LOL* Anyway, nothing to rave about this. It’s on quite an oily side. There’s also a bottle of complimentary ice tea.
Right: The main reason we came back, kimchi jeon (AUD15). It came out really fast. Not bad, very yummy. It’s spicy but not too spicy. It’s fine with me. However, for those who have low level of spiciness tolerance, it would be rather spicy for them. It was good but AUD15, it’s pretty highly priced but what to expect? It’s located at this high end street.
Left: It took us quite awhile to decide on our meat dish and ended up with spicy fried pork with vegetables (AUD27). The vegetables were just red and green capsicums and lots of onion. Quite spicy, much spicier than the kimchi jeon. It’s sweet as well. Great to go with rice. Not to forget the side dishes that came with it. The steam rice cost AUD2/bowl.
Right: Me! Hahaha… Sitting next to the huge mirror. Can’t help it but camwhored. I forgot my camera, so all these were taken with my phone. I have no habit of bringing my camera out now, I know… It’s bad.
I’m a happy girl last night surrounded by food and friends.
Lastly, well… I personally won’t go back for the reason of the price and slightly smaller portion. Food taste wasn’t bad but not the best. I don’t mind if to go back again if I’m not the one paying ;p
