Korean – Oriental Spoon (La Trobe St)

Sometimes it can be hard to pick a place to eat when you’re with a largish group of friends, but Oriental Spoon has plenty of tables and so it’s safe choice for lunch or dinner. It has good portions, reasonable prices (not cheap but not expensive either) and decent food. It’s by no means the best Korean food in Melbourne, but it’s still quite enjoyable.

Since we were here with a group we’ve forgotten some of the details of what everyone ordered, so we’ve given you approximate prices for each dish. No guarantees on the accuracy there. BUT, we do have all of the photos, and that’s always the most exciting part anyway. 😛

Korean Food at Oppa Kitchen

Oppa Kitchen is a relatively new addition to the many restaurants lining Swanston Street. The bright, modern decor of the restaurant is visible through the big glass windows, and the pink neon “Oppa” sign attracts the attention of passers-by. The menu on the window advertises Korean meals for lunch/dinner at an affordable price ($10 for a cold bi bim bap). When we visited Oppa for lunch, we found the food to be well-portioned and although it didn’t ‘wow’ us, we left the restaurant feeling satisfied.
