Adelaide Eats: Charcoal Hwaro Korean BBQ

If you liked 4 Table Korean BBQ, then you definitely have to try Charcoal Hwaro Korean BBQ because you get to eat all you want for almost the same amount of money you would pay at 4 Table, plus it’s in the city too so you save the trip :) Charcoal Hwaro Korean BBQ serves ala carte dishes too which is what we used to order whenever we came here in the past but recently they came up with the buffet concept and it’s eat all you want for $29.99 pp! Very worth it if you can eat as much as us, if not maybe it’s better if you go for the ala carte! The marination of the meats are still the same so you’ll still be able to enjoy good quality!

Was complaining that the chilli didnt have enough ‘kick’ so I started eating the garlic cloves whole to make up for it! It was so good! But I had to brush my teeth many many times after to get rid of the smell :$

This place is authentically Korean and is also a butchery! So if you’re not in the mood to BBQ that day, you can buy back their meats (fresh/marinated) to eat it at your own pleasure :) I like this place very much!

There is a $5 pp surcharge if you waste any food and I heard the owners are pretty strict about enforcing that rule from quite a few people though we didnt have to pay it when we went. So do be cautious when disposing uncooked/fatty portions of the meat ><

Adelaide Eats: J Restaurant

Shanghai Steamed Dumplings $5.80

Braised Pork Leg $18.80

Shanghai Style Crispy Duck (Half) $16.80

**Braised Duck in Beer and Chilli Broth

Here comes the special part! Once you are halfway done with the soup, the waitress will offer a free top up of Da Bai Cai (my favourite!), tofu and soup! And then you allow it to continue boiling with the soup and this is your end result on a cold night out! Definitely comforting to the tummy :)

I have no idea why I took so long to try this place since I have seen it so many times walking from the Village towards Central Market but this place is definitely good! My new favourite Chinese restaurant with authentic flavour and amazing service! The waiters and waitresses are attentive to your needs without being too intrusive! What more can you ask for in a restaurant when you have good food and service? Nothing! :D
