By Korea

1/222 La Trobe St,
Melbourne, VIC 3000

Tired. Lethargic. Slightly under the weather. Minimal words today. I’m going to let the pictures do the blogging for By Korea

Also, you may notice that the size of the images are switching between big and small, big and small. I promise that'll stop soon.

I made him sit like that for 5 minutes so I could get a good photo that had both him and the pretty wall pictures behind him.

Banchan. Crunchy kimchi and weird sweet mushroomy things. I think they offered free refills too.

Pork Bulgogi Lunch Box ($10)
Pork Bulgogi Lunch Box ($10)
Pork Bulgogi Lunch Box ($10). Tender pork twists and crunchy veggies. Sweet sweet sweet. But not too sweet. The deep fried dumpling on the side was crispy but boring. Omelette was bland.  Extra kimchi is always welcome.

Bibimbap ($8)
Why is the rice at the bottom of my Bibimbap ($8) never crunchy? A big hearty bowl of meat and veggies and sunny side up egg tossed with a chilli-soy paste is a good meal any day of the week.

Free Drinks
And a free soft drink/water with any lunch special! My bibimbap was a Tuesday only special though. Come back on other days for kimchi stew and jap chae and other Korean yummies. 

Rating: 12.5/20 – um. Korean?

  1. I wanna visit. And I will. What do you recommend I order? And do you recommend I come on tuesdays?

  2. Hmmm... well if you like Bibimbap, then Tuesday is great because that's the only day that it's on special. As for what to order, I'm not too sure (beyond what I tried), but I have heard that their korean fried chicken is really really good. Hope that helped :)
