I love to unearth the layers of the story, finding the essence with my endless questions and what I sense. Enjoy the reads. Travel

Peaceful location to enjoy authentic food
Cronulla has a delicious new addition to their ever popular restaurant scene. Locals are blessed with a wide variety of eateries to catch up with friends over scrumptious food, yet many are in high traffic areas and rather noisy.

Jumon Korean restaurant is situated opposite Monro Park in the less travelled southern end of Cronulla Street. Perfect for a quiet intimate meal and peacefulness.

Soft lighting and simplicity, a perfect setting.

Wide front windows fold open to allow an extended flow with indoor, outdoor seating and beyond overlooking gorgeous flowering Munro Park. The peace and quiet allows you to enjoy your food and friends conversations.

A beautiful flow of inside and outside seating. Photo slide show of dishes demystifies the menu.

Owned by a brother and sister, they lovingly prepare and serve authentic Korean and Japanese dishes that are light, healthy and beautifully presented. Previously working at Obaltan, a well respected Korean restaurant in Brisbane.

I adore the elegance and simplicity of Korean food and the visual presentation is so important. So much thought and care goes into exciting your senses.

Now if you are unfamiliar with the names of the dishes on the menu and a little unsure what to order, don't be put off. All you have to do is watch the slide show on the flat screen TV to make your choice and ease your mind.

Authentically presented Bulgogi Teppan

My first dish Bulgogi Teppan is served on a tray with Miso Soup and a bowl of rice. Teppan is served on a hot iron plate. Marinated beef and vegetables with soy sauce. The beef was cut in strips, a good variety of crisp vegetables with a slightly sweet sauce. Too much sauce in a dish drowns out the natural flavours of the meat and vegetables. With this dish the sauce enhanced the beef and vegetable flavours. @ $15.50

I love sipping a good Miso Soup, it goes so well with Korean and Japanese meals. This soup was delicate and smooth. If you want more, just ask and it will be replenished.

Fried Boneless Chicken with Garlic and Soy Sauce.

The next dish to arrive was a house specialty. Boneless Chicken with garlic and soy, presented on a beautiful ceramic square plate. Golden crispy fried succulent chicken pieces served with a light salad and a divine creamy apple flavoured dressing. There is definitely enough for two with this dish. @ $35. I would advise to share several dishes so you sample their fabulous menu.

A beautiful setting.

Their menu has just had an overview with some new and exciting dishes. So do pop in and try something different to the usual array of restaurants in Cronulla for dinner or lunch.

Great quick lunch treats to grab. Sit and eat in the stunning park opposite.

Korean food is a healthy alternative than all the fast food you find everywhere. Buy some sushi rolls or boxes and wander a few steps into the park for serenity. BimBim Bop is a warm beef salad with rice, great takeaway to grab and go. @$10

BimBim Bop warm beef salad @ $10.

Monro Park opposite Jumon gives a peaceful vista from the restaurant.

Just giving you the thumbs up to save embarrassment. If, like me, you think they are mints.

A great added touch, individual hand towels, not mints as I thought.

Two little white tablets sat in a ceramic bowl on my table. After my meal I thought it was a good idea to freshen my mouth with a 'mint'. I popped one in my mouth and began to suck. My first thoughts were they were a little tasteless, so I decided to sink my teeth into it. I could not work out why it would not break. Taking it out of my mouth to inspect it, I realised it was some sort of material. I found out it was a dehydrated hand towel. A demonstration was ensured for me. Oh well, another blonde moment.
