Obaltan Korean BBQ Restaurant

Just opposite the Myer centre is a chic, indoor barbecuing experience without the potential fire hazard, Obaltan is a must go for those open to enjoying a whole new way of grilling meat. Here customers are able to cook quality cuts of marinated meats to their own individual taste over white-aok charcoals, with long snake-like fans doing the hard job of keeping smoke at bay. While customers don't have to deal with a smoky restaurant, those coals are enough to make you feel the heat. Obaltan's staff does a great job of filling up water jugs quickly for dehydrating customers, though it's not a bad idea to bring your own water bottle during peak times on the weekend when things can get frantic.

Meat platters from the menu range in price depending on the quantity and variety of meats, but always arrive with complimentary side platters including Korea's most well known food, Kimchi. If you like a lot of vegetables with your meat, I'd suggest ordering Hot Pot so you don't miss out on the barbecuing.

For those who are vegetarian or don't feel like cooking their meat and want to let the chefs do the work, there are a dozen main meals which also come with a bowl of rice. For a fully 'Asian' experience, check out the Soju, Korean rice and berries wine, menu for an extra treat. Japanese sake imported straight from Osaka is also available.

Eating as a group is a great for those who are budget conscious, and is a heap of fun especially when it comes to wondering exactly what 'Beef skirt' is. Of course when eating as a group, booking ahead is key.
