I never thought it would happen or that it would work, but there is now a popular Korean restaurant in Cabramatta town, the heartland of Vietnamese and Chinese food.
And yes, it is authentically Korean, not a Vietnamese imitation. In fact, the kim chi chi ke is my favourite in Sydney, the soup is thick and not too sour and has a wonderful red colour, which the picture here probably doesn’t do it justice.
The pancake today was over-cooked, too thin and dry, but the marinated pork was fried perfectly – although some may find it too fatty.
Glad to report the restaurant, which is next door to the always popular Tan Viet is doing very well, full house when we ate around noon on Anzac Day.
Check out Walter’s video review below:
I’m not 100% sure of the name of the restaurant, the signage says simply ‘korean restaurant’, you can’t miss it, the place does look like a korean restaurant and stands out from the other eateries in Cabramatta, here’s what it looks like from the outside, although the buffet special in this pic is long gone.
Would love to see how good this restaurant is. Have yet to find a Korean restaurant that rates. Admittedly, not been trying too hard due to the long run of unsatisfying so-so or worse restaurants that people seem to like.
Thanks for the recommendation 🙂
Hey Simon, yep you really need to try it.. the service was abit sour early on, but we gave it a second chance, and it was heaps better today
I took my friends to Tan Viet today and commented how there's a korean restaurant next door. I wasn't sure about how it would do either because knowing how tradition the older generation could be and how they are too stubborn to try anything new. But when I walked passed there was a decent amount of people inside. Interesting review, might have to check it out for some local korean food
Hey Phuoc, was there around 1pm today so may have just missed you… the queue was crazy at Tan Viet today!
I'd recommend the Korean… just not the pancake, the kim chi soup is my fav
Yeah I got in just before 12:30pm then headed to Pho Tau Bay. We went around 3 different restaurants and had about 7 different dishes!
I kinda got told off by some guy at one of the fruit groceries because I peeled some longans for my friends to try. I never knew that you can't try them anymore… What happened to the days when they were telling us to try it? *sigh* How are foreigners suppose to know what they are or what they taste like?!
what a great idea progressive cabramatta eating… I didn't know you can't try either… we're getting so stuffy now, all the airs and graces!
