Where to find Brisbane's best Korean food
It's all up from kimchi!
We feel it in our Seoul that each of these spots is worth a visit! There may even be gloves involved…
WARAWARA | CBD
You might want to bring your goggles, because Warawara’s marinated grilled pork is sizzlin’. With 13 different sharing pots and all-you-can-eat wings every Sunday-Thursday, this cosy Korean eatery is the perfect spot for a late-night meal with your mates–they don’t close until 2 am!
KAIKAI CHICKEN | ST LUCIA
Head down the stairs of Kai Kai Chicken and you’ll be hit with the mouthwatering scents of frying chicken, spices and sauce. With their specialty being fried chicken, you’ll be spoilt for choice when checking out their extensive menu of delicious eats–and don’t even get us started on the honey butter fries…
KOREAN BUTTERFLY | WOOLLOONGABBA
This dark, intimate restaurant offers the perfect fusion of bold Korean flavours with European-style techniques, and will have you stunned as you gaze at your food being expertly prepared in front of you. With a $75 lunch set ever-changing degustation style dinner available for $150, prepare to experience new combinations and cutting-edge Korean dining in the heart of the Gabba.
HANWOORI | CBD
Indulge yourself in plates on plates of Korean goodness at Hanwoori’s buffet. For just $39.90pp Monday-Thursday and $42.90 Friday-Sunday, you’ll be smashing down bites from their meat bar (for grilling on your own BBQ, of course), hot food bar and salad bar. If you’re after a feast, you’d better get there before we do.
MOMO | Various
We know we go on and on about Korean fried chicken, but trust and believe–MoMo will leave you wanting more. If carbonara, marinade or soy chicken doesn’t float your boat (in which case, are you okay?), their kimchi fried rice, traditional hot stone bibimbap and tteokbokki (extra cheese, of course) will.
CHI MC | CBD
If you’re fortunate enough to be walking down Creek Street anytime soon, make sure to take a detour straight into the warm embrace of fried chicken, Korean pancakes and spicy hot pots at Chi Mc. Open until midnight on weekends, they know exactly what they’re about–and they do it well.
FUNNY FUNNY | CBD
There’s nothing funny about this restaurant, because their bulgogi pancake means serious business. Funny Funny is a go-to for fried dumplings, noodles and fried rice, and if you can’t decide between flavours for their fried chicken, try the Half & Half and pick your faves from the likes of original, cheese, bbq mayo, garlic and hot chilli.
Gomawoyo for the flavs, Korea!
