Located on Little Lonsdale Street sits a Korean BBQ in a stand-alone brick building, Paik’s BBQ. It’s much bigger than it looks and it gets super busy, so make sure you have a reservation before you turn up. Oh, I wouldn’t wear my best clothes either because all the smokiness will get into your clothes. As we stepped in the staff greeted up with all smiles and enthusiasm and was shown to our table. Looking over the menu, we started our meaty night!
Saturdays are the days for food hopping and who better to explore the Melbourne food scenes then with the food hopping crew. Miss Pear was the appointed organiser for the night and she was craving for some Japanese char grill, so Wagyu Ya here we come. Wagyu Ya is located on the busy streets of Toorak Road in South Yarra right across the train station. There were heaps of parking around so don’t fret about where to park your motorised vehicle.
I came here with a friend for dinner since she was craving Korean. We were in the area since we were seeing 112 (YEAH BOIIII!) and needed to stay close to the venue. I made a reservation on a Sunday night but we were a tad late but I called ahead to let them know (politeness FTW).
Decided to finally go to Big Boy BBQ as I’ve heard lots of people raving on about it. Entered the little shop and it was such a boy’s place to dine. Sauces on the table, large plastic red cups and american slow cooked meats with unlimited soft drinks refill!! We couldn’t decide what to get so we finally decided to get the little boy platter to share amongst three (I’ve got a teeny tiny stomach and there was too much meat)! So on the platter we got the pulled lamb shoulder, saucy beef brisket and ½ lamb ribs! When it came out and was huge!! However, I found it to be a tad salty and it wasn’t really my cup of tea.
