for a late-night dinner
It was the summer solstice the other day, so I decided to go outside for a long walk with my family near Chatswood. Before we all knew it, it was almost 9 o'clock and we hadn't eaten any dinner. Walking around the main street of Chatswood, we found 'The Bulgogi'- a Korean charcoal BBQ and dining restaurant that's open late at night and had a 'Late Night $9.90' menu.
Upon walking in, we realised that this 'Late Night $9.90' menu no longer existed, but they simply hadn't taken it off their restaurant window. Nevertheless, we decided to have dinner here, as it was probably the only place that still offered dinner at this time of the day.
Out of our family of four, two of us decided to order their 'Seafood Udon', a 'Soft Shell Crab Salad' and a 'Teriyaki Chicken Bibimbap'. For a look at the menu, click here (Note: The prices on this menu online is actually different to the prices in store).
We could see the kitchen from where we were sitting, so it was comforting to know that they'd probably cooked all their food fresh.
The bibimbap actually turned out to be way too hot, which didn't help me ease my hunger. Being a big fan of teriyaki chicken, it was still very delicious for what it was. They did however give me a redundant teriyaki sauce to go with the chicken, which I'd mixed with everything else in the bibimbap.
The seafood udons were actually too spicy for anyone in my family to handle, because we don't normally eat any spicy food at all. I just wished it mentioned somewhere on the menu which items were spicy and which weren't.
The soft shell crab salad had a bulk of salad and only some crab lingered on top of them, but they were enjoyable for everyone to share.
Although we didn't feel like barbecuing our own food, we will definitely try that next time.
