On my search for more Ganjung gejang which are raw crabs marinated in soy sauce I stumbled upon
HANGANG by Mama Park in Strathfield. The banchan is excellent and first out is the sizzling corn with molten cheese followed by spicy soft tofu soup.
We didn’t want to share the crabs so had ordered one each. The taste was just incredible, briny but sweet and just so umami. Squeeze out the crab meat onto some rice and enjoy. Oh and be sure to fill the head with rice and soak up all the juices. We also ordered a plate of the spicy raw crabs and oh boy this is just a flavour explosion, yes it’s spicy but it’s a good level of burning.
We also ordered grilled pork belly which comes with kimchi and onions and staff will help you cook if you dont want to. We cut the pork into bite size pieces so they can caramelise on all edges, I loved the crispy fatty nubbins.

I love all you can eat korean bbg and Dawn House in Auburn is a Korean Pocha-style BBQ and Hotpot and is such great value for $55 per person and is also BYO. Once you pay on the QR code a meat filled grill will be placed at your table with one lobster tail per person as well as a serve of steak cubes that is additional cost if you want more.
Grill to your hearts content and head over to the self serve station for kimchi and additional items like octopus, prawns, cheese stuffed sausages and marinated meats. Staff will happily change your grill if they get too burnt and once you’re done grilling you can request for hot pot time. Pick your soup base, the rose was my fave followed by the signature spicy and then from the self serve station I added mandu dumplings, instant noodles with american cheese and also tteokbokki noodles.

Whenever it rains or it starts getting cooler I start craving hotpot. Spice World in Chinatown is one my fave spots, so much so that I ate here twice in the past week so video is combined from these visits.
I always love customising my dipping sauce, there’s suggested combination notes if you’re stuck but I always love a heap of coriander, garlic, sugar, a little chilli paste and sesame oil.
Order your soup base and ingredients off the QR code and wait for the robot to deliver your food but don’t worry waiters are around to help out and deposit everything to your table.
On one visit we optimistically ordered half tom yum base and half the chilli and oh boy mistakes were made. We can normally handle spicy food but this was just off the charts spicy that we had to remove the bear and scoop out the chillis.
But anywhos. All the meats are great quality, the wagyu is always excellent but I also love the fatty lamb slices too. Dip your meat and cook to your hearts content or if you’re lazy like me chuck all into a scoopy ladle and dunk, oh and don’t forget your dipping sauce.
1 love the crown daisy chrysanthemum leaves for some health, they soak up the broth and don’t completely disintegrate and also these fish balls filled with fish roe are a must order. And last but not least an egg, I crack mine into a ladel so that it doesn’t float away.

It has been more than 5 years now since I’ve last been back to Malaysia so when I was in Melbourne I knew I had to go to Raya in Little Collins St.
For breakfast of champions, soft poached eggs with kaya toast. I’m not sure how everyone else eats this but I normally eat the kaya and butter centre of the toast first and then use the crusts to dip into the eggs with pepper and soy sauce. Special mention to the tehtarik as well which was light and frothy.
The sardine pie is a filled with a mixture of chilli, tomato, onion and sardines and encased in a super buttery and flakey shorterust pastry.
The Drommekage cake is a must order, it’s a take on the Danish dream cake with a beautifully light
pandan sponge that’s topped with toasted brown sugar and desiccated coconut.
I also ordered a selection of Nyonya kueh, my favourite being the ang koo filled with mung bean paste and also the Pulut Tai Tai with kaya jam.

I have been obsessed with duck for the past few months and one of the best I’ve had in Sydney is at Hotel Centennial in Woolahra. The roasted duck for two is $150 and there’s usually a 30min wait as it roasts. Once done our waiter brought the glossy duck to our table for us to bask in its glory before returning to the kitchen to slice up and return.
The duck breasts are served with peppers and comes with a little saucepan filled with rich jus. The duck itself is so juicy that it barely needs anything and the skin is crisp and perfectly rendered. The duck legs are confited and so tender and the summer leaf salad is fresh and zingy with shreds of duck hiding throughout.
