After a long day trip of feeding pelicans and watching penguins come home at Phillip Island, we were hunting for a late dinner on our way back to Melbourne CBD, and XY brought us to his favourite Korean restaurant, which he said was cheap and good!
This is a simple restaurant in the neighbourhood of Carnegie 16km south-east of Melbourne CBD, with simple decor but serves up authentic delicious Korean dishes with warm hospitality.
As in the case of traditional Korean restaurants, the appetizers came in generous portions and were yummy too, and refillable! It was also fortunate that we came as a group of 5, for the portions of the main dishes were huge!
- Pan Fried Dumpling Goon-Mahn-Doo ($A10 for 8 pieces): These were their signature gigantic dumplings with crispy skin and juicy fillings. Very yummy indeed!
- Seafood Pancake Hae-Mul Pa-Jeon (A$11.50): This was super duper awesome seafood pancake, and was definitely one of the best seafood pancakes we ever had! Crispy and filled with ingredients, hubby was in pancake heaven 😀
- Spicy BBQ Pork Ribs Dae-ji Galbi Gui (A$24.90): Finger licking good, but too much of these sweet and mildly spicy goodness might be a bit too heavy. Perfect for sharing for 5 of us though 🙂
- Spicy BBQ Chicken Dak-Bul-Go-Gi (A$16.90): The tender chicken pieces were quite yummy too, and it seemed spicier than the pork ribs. Very good to go with rice too!
- Kimchi Stew Kim-Chi-Tchi-Gae ($A16.90): Initially I was wondering why the kimchi soup was so thick, and then I realised that it was actually a stew, haha! This was very heartwarming on a cold winter night 🙂
We totally stuffed ourselves and had an awesome dinner. What’s more, it was certainly one of the most affordable dinners we had in Melbourne.
