Hyang-Won-Korean-Restaurant, Strathfield

Spicy hot pot… ready for Winter

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... served piping hot with typical Korean condiments (kimchi, fish cakes, seaweed salad and caramelised potatoes).

Hanabi, Lidcombe

Hanabi, Lidcombe

Hanabi at Lidcombe is the sister restaurant to its city (cnr Pitt St & Liverpool St) establishment. While the condiments are quite enjoyable, I found that the hot pot was a great disappointment. Strangely it featured a mixture of ordinary sausages and fresh vegetables with instant ramen.

Seoul-Ria, Syndey City

Seoul Ria

I feel like I'm right at the heart of Seoul. There's a lot of clatter as staff follow the ringing of table bells. It's such a lively room. Hungry people join the queue every couple of minutes. I scan the room, and large majorities of the crowd appear to be Korean. Ah, perfect... an authentic Korean restaurant. Families, students, large groups and working couples all look content with their meals. Food really does soothe the soul.
