Arisun, Sydney

Prior to my work trip, I had a serious craving for Korean Food. I was catching up with the lovely S and T, and suggested Arisun which is located on Dixon Street (between Goulburn and Liverpool Street), in the heart of Chinatown, Sydney.

I have been here a couple of times, usually really late at night after a night of drinking to have KFC – not the Colonel Sanders type but Korean Fried Chicken, still finger licking good but healthier in my books!

The KFC arrived and we were all in awe, geez, how are we going to finish all of it? I can’t believe we all doubted ourselves, between the four of us, we demolished and polished the KFC and could have probably gone for another serving. Crispy skin, tender meat, what more can you asks for? It was good but I have to admit though, I do prefer the KFC at Madang. It’s just slightly better, not sure if it’s because we ordered the plain fried chicken instead of the chili one. Regardless, it did satisfy my cravings for fried chicken!

The bimbimbap (without the raw egg, as both S and I can’t have anything raw!) served in a stone bowl was good but I have definitely had better.

‘The Mother’ wanted some sort of soup, so we ordered a serving of ‘hot pot’ – I can’t for the life of me remember the name of this dish! It was a coolish evening, so this was good. However, I thought the soup was a little bland.

The last dish was probably the most disappointing. We wanted something on the lighter side, didn’t think the above was enough. In hindsight, we should have probably ordered another serving of KFC. Alas, we ordered, beef in black bean sauce with rice topped with egg. It was extremely ordinary and I would probably never order this dish again.

I have had the seafood pancake here before and although it is good, it is not as great as Madang. A week later, I dragged the family to Madang to get another fix of KFC and Korean food in general. I personally prefer Madang, but I don’t like the queues, so Arisun is a good alternative. Stick to the KFC I say, and the chop suey and pancakes. At this hour as I am writing this, I have a serious craving for KFC!

    I’ve heard SO much about the KFC here…looks good! You should’ve just ordered piles of it and forgotten the rest.
