Madang, Sydney

It certainly has been a while since my last visit to Madang, there is usually a large group of people lining and it’s the queue that makes me walk away. However, we (the family and I) were all craving Korean food and was determined to get a table. We arrived at about 6pm on a Saturday evening, and 25 minutes later we were seated!

I left all the ordering to my brother F, and as soon as we ordered, the banchan were served. Kimchee, grated daikon, potatoes salad, fish cake salad and seaweed salad. My favourite was definitely the kimchee and I love how it was refillable.

The haemul pajum – seafood and shallot korean pancake ($20) was one of the nicest pancake I have had. The batter was crunchy and I love the combination of shallots and seafood. The dipping sauce was a wonderful complement.

Dolsot bibim bab – rice topped with vegetables and a choice of beef, chicken, pork, tofu on a hot-pot ($14) and we all opted for the beef. Delicious mix of beef, rice, and vegetables which has been blanched and dressed with olive oil and soy sauce. I love the crunchy, chewy, sticky rice that was stuck at the bottom of the pot.

We ordered the tong kimchi tong ($18), pork belly marinated in wine with whole cabbage kimchee. I love the wine-marinated pork belly, it was incredibly tender, and succulent. I could have easily eaten the whole thing on my own!

We also enjoyed the pork ribs (I can’t for the life of me remember the name of it!), which was barbequed beautifully by my Mum!

F has been raving about the fried chicken here, he claims it is one of the best he has had! Ordered the tang su gi – deep fried chicken in sweet and sour sauce ($26), the chicken had a lovely crunchy batter and succulent chicken. I love the sweet and sour sauce, however, it wasn’t the right one!!!!

SO we ordered another fried chicken, the ‘right’ one, deep-fried chicken in spicy sour sauce ($26) and wow – the crunchiness of the chicken, the spiciness of the sauce exploded in our mouths.

Clearly, we ordered too much, and I took the left over fried chicken in spicy sour sauce and had it for lunch the next day. The prices quite reasonable, and the quantity of the fried chicken was definitely generous! I think the quantity for the barbecued meats could be more, regardless, it was still good.

Service good, and efficient, and I have to say, that chili chicken is definitely worth coming back for – even if its takeaway! Unfortunately they do not take reservations on Friday and Saturday nights, get there early so you won’t have to wait too long!
