Miga Korean Restaurant, Glynde

Open kitchen, KFC with sweet chilli sauce; $7.50 (M), seafood pancake; $11.00, pork bone and bean curd stew; $13.90

Cheap Asian eats at Miga on Payneham Road a few doors away from Go Go Buffalo. We came here with high expectations after the raving reviews we’ve read about online with most recommending that their pancakes were top notch. Unfortunately, we didn’t think so. The seafood pancake we ordered weren’t bad but they weren’t mind blowingly good; the didn’t have the crisp exterior that I was hoping for, instead they were soft and soggy from the heat sweat after being fried and immediately plonked on the plate. The stranger happily polished off the KFC (that stands for Korean Fried Chicken by the way) with sweet sticky chilli sauce, however I found the chicken pieces to be a bit too dry but he didn’t seem to mind. The order of the stew was based on the waiters recommendation… it definitely required an acquired taste as the bean curd was quite pungent, salty and strong and it was a flavour profile that we were not too familiar with. It was presented in a super hot stone ball with the soup inside still bubbling away. Along with our orders of food, we were given complimentary side dishes of potato salad, kimchi and pickled vegetables albeit serving sizes were puny small. One mouthful and each side dish was gone. Not bad, but not great.

    Try Giwa on King William Road. It’s a little pricey but the quality of food is much higher than your usual greasy Korean.

    Mandoo on Bank Street have great dumplings and bibimbap, and Koba does a really good jjambbong (seafood noodle soup) 🙂

      Thank you for the recommendations! I’ve been to Mandoo and enjoyed their hot pots but have yet to try Koba -it’s on my list now. Cheers 🙂

    I honestly really love Miga. I think it’s the best Korean food I’ve tried in Adelaide 🙂 Check out my full review here : http://audreyforyou.blogspot.com/2016/10/review-miga-korean-restaurant-payneham-glynde-adelaide.html

    However, if you’re into Korean BBQ then I’d definitely recommend Giwa.
