It is hard to miss Stra Pocha- a smokey red building opposite the Strathfield railway station (on the quieter side). At 6.30pm, this Korean BBQ restaurant was packed with locals. When we ordered the ‘special hot sauce BBQ chicken’ the waitress whom had limited-english, warned us that it was very hot and we weren’t allowed to make a complaint if it was unedible. This was enticing enough for us to order without hesitation. I love my food fiery hot.

    Zen – you’re exceptionally excellent too hun 🙂
    Dianne – How was the BBQ chicken with cheese? Was it hot? We should go again soon!!

  • Good site! I’ll stay reading! Keep improving!

  • If you have the guts to use the hot sauce these guys provide(not me), they’ll protect your hands with some see through plastic gloves. The food was good, but never before have a drank such a refreshing coke. Maybe it was a Pepsi or something but… the coke… it was something else. Chilled to perfection, not too cold as to dull the taste and not too warm as to increase the acidity. Just perfect!

  • i reckon these hot dishes would go through me like drano 🙁 hehe
