Glen Waverly is reknown for their food and when a new restaurant pops up, everyone knows about it. K-Town Restaurant and Bar is located in the Montclair Avenue Building. Don’t be fooled though, when you step out of the elevator, it has a very modern decor, pumping music and friendly and attentive staff. We got there smack bang at lunch time and we were the first ones in which meant we got to pick our table. Once seated, we flicked through the menu and started our little feast.
For starters we got the takoyaki and pork dumplings. Takoyaki was quite average. It had too much batter and it was quite soggy. The pork dumplings were on point though. The dumpling skin was thin and crispy and the inside was juicy and that filling was delish!
Takoyaki – $7 Pork Dumplings (5pc) – $9
I love myself a good seafood pancake and for $19 a pop, I initially thought it was a touch on the exy side. However, when it came out, I understood that it was actually great value. The portion was GINORMOUS and it was pack filled with seafood and not just the three pieces of calamari that you usually get at other places. Not only that but it was oh so delish!
Seafood Pancake – $19
Now if you’re a spicy fiend and love yourself a bit of stir fried beef brisket noodles, this is the dish for you. This was “my mouth is burning I can’t feel my tongue” spicy and no, I am not exaggerating. If you can push through the spiciness, the flavour was AMAZING! The beef brisket was cooked perfectly and definitely have a glass of milk if you can’t handle your spice like me.
Stir Fried Beef Brisket Noodle – $19
Fried chicken. Koreans know how to do their fried chicken and so we were excited to get it here too. We went for the Soy Garlic flavour and holy smokes, it was so crispy and crunchy on the outside and oh so juicy on the inside. It wasn’t greasy and it kinda felt a lot healthier compared to other places.
Boneless Soy Garlic Fried Chicken (half) – $19
Ms Chanel really wanted the traditional chicken soup and this isn’t something that I would get. Boy was I glad that she was adamant on getting this. It was light and subtle in ginseng flavour and the chicken just fell off the bone. Definitely great if you were looking something more refreshing without that intense flavour.
Traditional Chicken Soup – $26
Whole chicken with ginseng, dried date and veggies
We couldn’t decide which dessert to get so we got the platter. The tiramisu was great. Strong flavour of coffee, mascarpone cheese and perfect amount of whipped cream. The panna cotta had great jiggle consistency but the flavour wasn’t great. I’m not a huge fan of semi freddos and this didn’t tickle my fancy either. It wasn’t a semi-frozen dessert, more of a frozen dessert.
Platter – $25
Tiramisu, Panna cotta and Semi freddo
K Town serves amazing food and is definitely great value. They use quality ingredients and have perfected their Korean dishes! It’s not only a restaurant but also a bar and you can even book their private karaoke rooms for a big night and it’s the same food that you’ll get at the restaurant. K Town, we will definitely be back.
