Writing a Sydney food blog is not just about eating in a different place each night. In fact, we go back to the favourite haunts over and over. This is an update of an old post on this now not-so-new Korean restaurant, Dai Jang Gum (actually the only signage outside is Korean Restaurant). Now that I have a better camera, I wanted to do the place justice.
I do like it that it’s complimentary with each meal and they’re eager to top them up. There’s usually at least four types of different kim chi, although it’s only the cabbage and bean sprouts that I really like.
The stir fried korean chicken is always great, heavily marinated in a sweet sauce, with plenty of vegetables.. just don’t look at the oil collecting at bottom of the plate.
Seafood soup was great, not too hot or mild, although it does have a very strong fish/seafood taste from oysters, dried shrimp and other seafood meats.
