Winter is the season for hearty food and we reckon that Korean food, especially Korean BBQ is the best way to cure that craving. It is time to get your friends together for a late night out, have some Soju and enjoy the novelty of a barbie indoor.
Woodo Korean | 179 King St, Melbourne VIC 3000
There is always a line on the weekends to get a table at Woodo, and there is a reason why. The staff is attentive, they help you cook your food while you chat away with your mates, the food is delicious and you cannot forget the complimentary dessert at the end! Our favourite set of BBQ is the beef & pork set, enough for 3 people to share.
Seouljaboy | 9/108 Bourke St Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
This new boy in town has got some beats to it, Korean food with a Western twist. Find DJ @jmush-jun doing his magic on Friday nights while you eat some friend chicken ribs (yum)! Seouljaboy offers a Feed Me option where they feed you with chef’s selection of recommended dishes to share, what a way to try their food!
Don’t forget to take a moustache selfie while you are in the bathrooms.
Sam Sam | 209 Swanston St, Melbourne VIC 3000
Fried chicken and beer? Yes, please! You cannot get anymore Korean than Sam Sam. Traditionally in Korea, they enjoy a night out after a long day at work so they catch up with friends at restaurants that simply only serve fried chicken and beer! Make your Korean trip a little more local with Sam Sam’s convenient Swanston Street location and to-die-for chicken.
Oriental Spoon | 254 La Trobe St, Melbourne VIC 3000
A spacious two stories Korean restaurant where you can always get a table. The place to be for big group of friends. The service is quick, food is delicious, and if you love spicy food – Oriental spicy Seafood Casserole is your choice. The décor of the restaurant might not be the best, but hey, they have offer unlimited side dishes!
CJ Lunch Bar | 391-393 Little Lonsdale Street
A very cozy place with some cheap but yummy food. If you are on a budget and crave for some hearty food, CJ Lunch Bar is the place. All the dishes are made to share with their generous portion, and we love their spicy cheese chicken Bulgogi and spicy slow cooked beef ribs. (Warning, Asian spicy standard.)
