Korea Jung, Adelaide

Hidden on Leigh St is a quiet Korean restaurant which would generally be overlooked by many passer byers. I’ve always wanted to try it out after reading a few good reviews online so a lunch date at Korea Jung was planned and expectations were high (kinda).

The restaurant is quiet and empty with one waiter tending to the few customers on hand. We are seated and presented with our menus and a complimentary spring onion pancake.

Complimentary spring onion pancake and an array of side dishes.
Pancake is rather oily and soft; not as crispy as I’d like it to be.

Pan fried dumplings; $8.00
The dumpling shells are crispy but like the pancake, the dumplings are on the oily side. Meh.

Spicy pork and kim chi fried rice; $15.00 and $12.00
Presentation is obviously not high on the priority list here. Can’t say I was impressed with either dish, the rice was soggy, there was hardly any meat and the overall experience was quite poor.
