A friend of mine recommended to me a Korean quick cheap eats just along Swanston and I have eaten here multiple times since then. Oppa Kitchen is a new restaurant that is no stranger to many because of its strategic location. The menu is kept simple with mostly just rice bucket dishes, hot stone bibimbap, and a selection of meat choices.

Soy Garlic Peanut Boneless Korean Fried Chicken (KFC), S:6AUD/M:11AUD

We ordered a small sized KFC that was absolutely delish. These fried chicken were succulent because it was the thigh part of the chicken they used, and extremely decadent as it was cooked in Korean sweet garlic soy sauce. It comes with small cut out wedges and fried rice cakes. I am not a huge fan of normal rice cakes in red chili sauce, but when they are fried, I can only say yes please! The slaw on the side looks ordinary but the sauce on it knocked it out off the ballpark.

Bulgogi Beef Bibimbap, 10AUD

For a traditional Korean meal, I love my bibimbap a lot. You can opt for an additional two bucks to have it on hot stone. I don’t like having to blow a typhoon every time I take a bite, so the normal plate has always been fine with me. The chili paste glues all the ingredients together after I mixed it up, and it is the key ingredient that enhances the flavour of the dish.

Grilled Pork Belly Bulgogi Meal Bucket, 12AUD

Jan needs his meat and the pork belly hits the spot. There was a side of orange slice and I suggest to squeeze it on the pork belly sauce as it sweetens the acidity of the sauce. Jan also added a side of chili sauce because there was not enough sauce for him. All in all it was still a great dish that satisfies.

Oppa Kitchen is somewhere I would repeatedly go for a quick Korean fix. The place is value for money and not a single plate is more than 12AUD. I mean, Come on.

  1. Those buckets do look fun! Though they remind me of bathtubs, the round ones, in Japan!
