[box_alert]Hyang Won Korean Restaurant has closed[/box_alert]

In welcoming the first couple of cold days, I constantly craved soup… or at least something spicy. It is no wonder there is such a high chilli consumption rate in Asia!
Strathfield is where I go when I want something local, quick and fast. There are Korean restaurants across every main street. Today, we decided to revisit Hyang Won, which is popular for the hot pots or barbeques. I love the spicy octopus, marinated beef, tofu and vegetable hot pot. Priced at $35, it is more than enough to feed 2 people. It is served piping hot with typical Korean condiments (kimchi, fish cakes, seaweed salad and caramelised potatoes).

Yummo…. the hot pot is filled with loads of chilli, udon noodles, fresh greens, tofu, octopus, beef, zucchini, mushrooms, carrots, Chinese cabbage and so much more ๐Ÿ™‚

    Bossam is steamed pork belly with fresh oyster kimchee in salted cababbge you will really love it, there are few ways to make this but they do the most traditional way without cinnamon or other herbs.
    then order one serve pig bone jjigae(14bucks i think) coems with one rice (eat the flesh them in soup put rice and share it)
