268 Victoria Street
Too hungry to wait 20 minutes for Donwoori (on the extreme ends of walk in policies with no phone number available but they were packed), we made our way next door to Wooga and finally wound up at Hallah. Donwoori & Wooga were quite smoky, Hallah being the least smoky of the lot when we walked in. I do believe we saw another Korean restaurant a few doors down and one round the corner. And there I was thinking A’ Beckett was peppered with Korean eateries.
Original & Soy Korean Fried Chicken ($29)
I don’t profess to be an expert on KFC and I’m not entirely sure what authentic KFC should taste like. The portion was less generous than Oriental Spoon but the coating was wonderfully crispy, juicy chicken half of which was drizzled in this sticky honey like sauce.
Stir Fried Pork, Onions, Spicy Chilli Sauce ($14)
Spicy, tender pork with garlic and vegetables.
Seafood Hotpot ($39)
A light spicy soup, with crab, prawns, mussels, squid, scallops and tofu.
Tofu Kimchi with Pork ($12.5)
In contrast with the earlier pork dish, the bean paste through this was a lot thicker, making it a richer dish. I preferred the lighter pork dish above.
Hallah might have daintier portions, but I quite like the quality of the dishes. I look forward to returning for the other Korean offerings along Victoria Street to see how they compare.
