What is the best Korean food KAOKAO at Town Hall in Sydney?


Hello everyone. I’m @olivertomolife and I’ve studied abroad in Sydney!

Since there are many Korean immigrants in Australia, many Korean dishes are available in Sydney.

At KAOKAO, which has a store in the Town Hall in the center of town, their famous dishes include Jajang Noodles and Tangsuyuk, which is fried pork!

My Korean friend recommended this restaurant to me, and I liked it, so I’ll introduce it to you.

What is Korean food KAOKAO?

It is a restaurant located in Sydney’s Town Hall that specializes in Chinese-style Korean food.

I especially recommend their Jajang Mian noodles and a dish called Tangsuyuk!

What is Jajang Noodles?

black beans noodles

Jajangmyeon is a Korean noodle dish derived from the Chinese dish Jajang Mian.

It is classified as a Chinese dish in Korea and is characterized by its sweet flavor.

It is prepared by stir-frying wheat noodles, black miso, minced meat and onions together, and because of the large share of seasonings, the taste often remains the same from restaurant to restaurant.

It is also famous as a Black Day dish in Korea, and is eaten by people who have no boyfriend on April 14th.

What is tangsuyuk?

sweet sour pork

It is a Korean Chinese dish made with pork, and is derived from the Chinese dish, sweet-and-sour pork.

The cooking method of frying fried pork and vegetables in sweet vinegar is the same as that of Chinese food, but it is less sour.

Since it’s a large dish, it’s one that’s often eaten in large groups!

Exterior of the restaurant

You can see the menu from outside the restaurant.

You can also see the restaurant from the window.

The atmosphere inside the restaurant

Since the location of the restaurant has changed, the inside of the restaurant has been updated, making it a beautiful space.

There are a lot of tables, so it’s hard to get full.

However, it may be crowded on weekends.

Recommended menu

I recommend the Jajang Mian and Tangsuyuk!

You must order them when you come to this restaurant.

How to Order and Points to Note

Place your order with the waitress at the restaurant.

The bill is paid later, and card payment is also accepted.

Taste of the food

I ordered jajang rice noodles and tangsuyuk!

I’ll start with the jajang rice noodles.

black noodles

It’s got a sweet and spicy sauce that goes perfectly with the noodles!

I also like the texture of the onions in the ingredients.

It’s a simple dish, but very tasty.

I’ll also try the tangsuyuk.

sweet sour pork

The crispy fried chicken and the sweet and sour seasoning is to die for!

The ingredients, onions and carrots, are also well seasoned and delicious.

Because the quantity is large, it is better to order in several people.
