A mate of mine had a night off from his missus and daughter, so we decided that we’d have a couple of brews and a bite to eat.
Discussions were had over a couple of pints of Carlsburg to decide just where to eat. Rose Garden, Chili Padi, Supper Inn, Papa Gino’s… but then I remembered a Korean restaurant that I’d eaten at many, many years ago. And luckily, it was just a block away, it was still there and there were tables free.
Seoul Restaurant is on Little Bourke Street between Queen and Elizabeth Streets.
A quick look at the menu to determine that we could get a decent beer and, before we knew it, we were at our table and ordering a Cass beer.
Since there were only two of us, we decided to go for the smallest Korean style barbecue banquet consisting of marinated beef, pork and chicken. Accompanied by the usual side dishes of lettuce, cucumber, cabbage etc. and rice.
The consensus was that we made a good choice. The meal was extremely tasty and very reasonably priced. The banquet was $50 for two people, very good value for the food that was provided. The Cass beers were $7 each.
If you have the time, take a wander through some of the little laneways around this area. It’s a part of Melbourne people don’t usually look at, but its so intriguing and historic.
