Following the success of their first branch at Mawson Lakes, Mr Bulgogi has opened a second branch in the suburb of St Morris. The St Morris branch is notable for offering an additional selection of dishes that are only available at St Morris.
One of the dishes exclusive to the St Morris branch, their Chicken Katsu is a Korean take of the Japanese dish of the same name. The flesh of the chicken was tender and was set off wonderfully by the crisp crumb coating. Compared to the Tonkatsu sauce served with its Japanese counterpart, the sauce served with this dish had a more savoury flavour. Served with the dish were pickled ginger and coleslaw.

Another of the St Morris branch specials, the pieces of deep-fried pork in their Jangsuyuk were of a generous size. The sweet and sour sauce had a delectable tangy flavour and the vegetables still had a bit of bite to them. Despite what the picture in the menu suggested, the sauce was served separately from the pork so you can add as much or as little as you desire, or use it as a dipping sauce.

A good dish for warming you up, their Kimchi Jijae had enough kimchi to give the dish a delightful spicy kick and the slices of pork were cooked just right. Served with the dish were a bowl of rice and kimchi, making it a complete meal by itself. It is advisable to eat the food slowly as it comes to you piping hot.
This restaurant is bigger than the Mawson Lakes branch and the bigger tables have built-in hot pot stoves. If you are looking for yummy Korean food while in St Morris, consider giving Mr Bulgogi a try.
