Geonbae Korean BBQ Restaurant

Frankston's response to Melbourne's Southbank for dining
Frankston is not a place I normally associate with fine dinning and adventurous cuisine. However, Geonbae has proved otherwise. Situated on the Kananook Creek, almost at the mouth of the river, just a few minutes from the Frankston pier, both the views and the cuisine are fabulous.

Alfresco Korean BBQ Dining

There was so much on this menu it was hard to decide, however, in the end, we chose the Variety set menu at $50 per person to get a sense of the flavours.

After a starter of nibbles, we had Sweet Mahn Doo (Pork & Chive dumplings), which were wonderfully tasty, Pa Jeon (Savoury pancake with kimchi, BBQ of Pork Samgyupsal (thinly slice pork belly),Beef Bulgogi (thinly slice porterhouse in a traditional marinade of soy & garlic), Bibim Bap and Korean Fried Chicken (our choice of sauces was sweet chilli & honey and mustard).

The BBQ dishes are cooked on the table, in front of the guests – no reheating at this restaurant.

The Bibim Bap is mixed at the table in its hot stone dish and you get to decide how spicy you want the dish and the waitress adjusts the seasoning accordingly.

The standout dishes for us were the Beef Bulgogi and the Sweet Mahn Doo.

We were seated on the decking rather than inside, there were outside heaters and for those guests that feel the cold, rugs were also offered. The venue is fully licensed, so we had Korean beer, which was very nice. We also had Soju Korean Rice Wine, which was only one small bottle and shared between us both. I quite liked it but it has a high alcoholic content, so it is important to be careful if you are driving.
