Taking its name from the Korean word for cow, So Urban BBQ Restaurant is a good place to enjoy delicious Korean barbeque dishes. It proved to be popular, with a crowd of a good size gathering as the peak dinner hour drew near.

To remove a bit of stress for customers nervous about cooking the meat themselves, their Korean Barbeque dishes were grilled on an outdoor charcoal grill before being presented on a portable grill plate at the table for the food to continue cooking and stay warm. A staff member cut the food into bite sizes for us for easy eating. The process of cooking their Beef Sirloin and Pork Neck over a charcoal grill was what gave them their delectable charred flavour. We were advised to eat the sirloin first, to ensure it did not become overcooked.

To balance our meal, we also ordered their Eggplant and Assorted Mushroom. All the vegetables still retained a bit of bite, with the charred flavour complementing their natural taste well. All their charcoal grill dishes came with fresh vegetables for wrapping the grilled food and enjoying them in the Korean way. Also included were soybean powder and a dipping sauce based on Gochujang, a spicy sauce made from fermented bean paste.

The grilled dishes took about fifteen minutes to prepare, so it is a good idea to order some small dishes to sate your appetite while waiting for your main meal to arrive. We ordered Korean Fried Chicken, which had succulent meat set off nicely by a crispy coating. They were tossed in a sauce that gave them a spicy kick that was not too intense. A sprinkling of shredded spring onions provided a bit of freshness to the dish.

In addition to their dinner menu, So Urban BBQ also has a lunch menu that focuses on smaller dishes, some of which are similar to dishes that can be seen at Australian cafes. If you are looking for a good place to enjoy Korean barbeque, consider giving So Urban BBQ a visit.
