Food and Cooking

Food is an integral part of any culture and we want to provide an abundance of different ways to learn about the traditions of Korean food and cooking.

Restaurants

SEOULRIA | SYDNEY

Lively atmosphere, all basic Korean staples as well as BBQ and Chinese Korean options. Sometimes the waiters don’t have the most awesome English skills so on the one hand it’s a great opportunity to practice your Korean, on the other it leaves room for confusion!

NARUONE | SYDNEY

Really good fried chicken and budaejjigae, has a very Korean vibe inside (feels like they’ve imported all their interiors from Korea), all the basic Korean dishes – jjigaes, bibimbap etc are available.

MOON PARK | SYDNEY

A little more expensive than most but the prices are reasonable and the food is amazing. There is a Korean chef and Ben Sears, who used to be the head chef at Claude’s.

MRS KIM’S GRILL | MELBOURNE

Mrs Kim’s Grill is the result of a Korean migrant wanting to share her home and food with her friends and the wider Melbourne community over 30 years ago. Arguably the best Korean BBQ in Melbourne.

SUDA | MELBOURNE

Korean-fusion food tucked away at the western end of Little Lonsdale Street. Delicious flavoursome food with interesting options, in a cute space with friendly staff.

JOOMAK | MELBOURNE

Feels just like a Korean suljib, hidden in a basement in the CBD. This place is a hidden gem on Swanston Street. Includes booths which make it great for large groups!

GAMI | MELBOURNE

Melbourne’s go-to for Korean fried chicken and beer. Turns the humble fried chicken into an art form, including vegetarian and salad options and Melbourne-brewed beer.

A smaller grocery store but they have everything you need. Their kimchi is locally made and pretty delicious; a kilo bag for around $12. They also have a pretty good range of frozen mandu and meat (kalbi, bulgogi etc)
