Korean Table, Melbourne, Australia

After an afternoon at the footy watching Hawthorn capitulate yet again we headed to the western side of the CBD in search of dinner in the small laneways.

Just off Lonsdale Street between King and Spencer Streets is a little laneway called Rose Lane and on this laneway you’ll find a Korean Restaurant called Korean Table.

It was pretty quiet when we arrived around 6pm so were able to grab a table straightaway.

The menu looks good and for the three of us we ordered

  • Mandu – Korean dumplings
  • Korean boneless fried chicken
  • Bo Ssam
  • Kimchi Bu-Chim-Gae – Korean pancake

This was enough food to fill the three of us and they all tasted great but the pick of the day was the fried chicken which was excellent.

Errol’s, North Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia

It was a weird summer Saturday afternoon in Melbourne. It was very quiet due to the burgeoning number of omicron cases sweeping through except for the “Freedom” super spreader demonstration that came through the city just after lunch.

Anyway, once the Darwin Award nominees had finished their march past a mate and I decided to head out for a beer in North Melbourne at Benchwarmer. When we arrived it was eeriely quiet but while beer was available the kitchen was closed.

As we had our first beer we decided to head out for dinner afterwards to the close by Three Crowns Hotel but we found that they were closed due to staff shortages. Mulling over the options we chose to see if Errol’s on Errol Street was open for pizza.

As we walked down the quietest Errol Street I have ever seen with only a smattering of places open we spied that Errol’s was open and we could sit outside.
