An oldie but a goodie.
Burn, baby burn. Yes, all you can eat Korean BBQ in Parramatta.
Charcoal Mine BBQ House Parramatta is the first all you can eat Korean BBQ (KBBQ) in Australia. Down the City end of Church Street, this restaurant was a monthly affair for noodlies, Sydney food blog for years and years.
Yes, all you can eat Korean BBQ (KBBQ) buffet right here in Parramatta. Eat until you can eat no more.
If you love meat, there’s no shortage; bulgogi beef, scotch fillet, marinated beef ribs, pork belly, spicy pork, marinated chicken and chicken wings. The cut is surprisingly good quality, excess fat has already been trimmed off. Though seafood lovers might quibble at the limited range; mussels, calamari and baby octopus.
Frankly, this is a bargain for good, all you can eat quality meat.
Offal lovers, like me, will be very happy; ox tongue, liver, kidney, beef intestines and chicken giblets.
The range of banchan sides are limited, but it does include shallot banchan, an addiction of mine and the delicious kim chi is made back of house.
The range of sauces and sides to spice up your meat is pretty extensive from both western and Korean, including bbq, tomato, sesame oil, soy, gochujang, sweet chilli, doenjang, mayonnaise and vinegar.
You can pay more for kim chi or soy bean Korean soup and a selection of seasonal seafood.
The staff are friendly and efficient, changing your grill when needed. Though admittedly we came early on a weeknight so they’re not so run off their feet. It gets hectic on weekends.
Price varies: $33 (Mon-Thu), $35 (Fri-Sun), tea and fruit is included. It’s cheaper at lunch and cheaper for children. Frankly, this is a bargain for good, all you can eat quality meat.
