Oriental Spoon Restaurant

Home > Melbourne > Food and Wine | Restaurants
Published September 21st 2011
When it comes to Asian food, I must say Korean food is my first choice. Oriental Spoon is on my top Korean restaurants list in Melbourne.

It was on an unfriendly chilly night when I was craving for a hotpot soup. I walked past the corner of La Trobe street and Elizabeth street, I gazed at a restaurant situated below street level that was crammed with people outside and inside waiting to be seated.

So I strike and read the menu from the outside. I didn't have to think twice to finally step down into Oriental Spoon. Half an hour waiting to be seated was a bit frustrating for me, considering I was truly, madly, starving. But I was bewitched by the fancy interior designed in modern oriental look. And I watched the waiters who communicate with earpieces emulating the CIA.

Eventually it was our turn to be seated.

The hotpot was very popular on that night, so we ordered Beef, Mushroom Casserole. I was amazed at how large the servings were. The dish was served in a gigantic cast iron paella atop a portable stove with bubbling spring onions, mushrooms, tofu and beef.

It's the right place to share food for a modest amount. The entrée and salad ranges from $4-$10. The main and shared dishes ranges from $17-$19, all the casserole dishes costs $37.90 and finally the Korean BBQ ranges from $20-$50.

The reason why you don't bother to leave the place is because of its reasonably efficient service and its tasty foods. A big place means big taste.
