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!
Our dinner spread
We have been seeing people post pictures of food from FIX and figured that we should give it a try 🙂
This is a cafe that is found inside the HomeTeam NS-JOM Clubhouse (something like SAFRA Clubhouse but its for the Police and SCDF personnel). It is an overhead-bridge-walk over PIE from Toa Payoh Central. If you come from the Balestier side, it is quite near from Wheeler’s Yard.
Despite being an open-air venue, the fans were strong enough for us to remained cool throughout the meal. In fact, it was rather windy! The decorations were also quite interesting, with metal pipes as design for the bar counter, and metal scaffoldings between benches. Above us were lightings made with bicycle wheels! Situated next to the pool, it was quite a lovely place to hang out for a few hours.
Spread of appetizers
We haven’t been to Suntec City for a long while and boy, so many things have changed! There were also many new food options available, so after some consideration, we decided to try out Kimchi Korean Restaurant instead of the ramen restaurant 2 shops away, thinking that we might want to linger a while longer and the ramen shop is probably not so ideal for a long meal. Both had very good online reviews though!
We arrived just before 6.30pm and requested for a table of 5. The waitress responded that she had a table available but we had to clear out by 7.45pm. We declined and was offer an alternative 4-seater with an extra chair, which was fine, since the table was quite huge 🙂
