Stra Heajangkuk, Strathfield

I have not been to Strathfield since I left high school. It used to be a local hang out for my friends and I – we would loiter after school and hang out at one of the cafes on the weekend, from memory the café’s name is Cador Café – oh the  memories! Strathfield has definitely changed since high school days. There are a lot more cafés, more Korean restaurant and a few yogurt places that weren’t there previously.

I was catching up with the lovely suzchef and considering it was quite a cold evening, I wanted something warm and hearty and she suggested Stra Heajangkuk. There are two restaurants; the one we went too was further up the road, I am not 100% sure what the difference were but S has been going to this restaurant for a while now and highly recommend it.

The restaurant is relatively small, it’s not flash but serves some pretty awesome food! We started with some banchan – kimchi, chili, grated daikon, and tofu salad. My favourite was definitely the kimchi – can never get enough of it!

Both S and I couldn’t go past the pork bone soup with rice ($12) which was served in a hot plate, the soup was still boiling when it arrived at our table. The soup was a little spicy but the pork was tender and it was perfect for a cold evening.

We also shared the garlic chives and seafood pancake ($13). It was extremely green, as I have never had a garlic chives version but this was absolutely delicious. Slightly crispy on the outside and deliciously moist on the inside. It definitely went well with our pork bone soup.

Service minimal but efficient, it’s quite a cute and ghetto place. Definitely keen to try their other dishes next time with the family. Always on the lookout for good Korean restaurants!

    It definitely looks like a great feed for that cold winter’s night! Sadly I don’t know too many Korean places but recently stumbled across Stra Pocha and it was amazing. Everything blew my head off in terms of spiciness and temperature hahah
