Cafe Arirang, hidden away in Hobart Place Canberra City is one of Canberra’s little known, best value gems.
Serving delicious Korean food at great value prices in generous portions it’s one of the very best spots for cheap and cheerful.
Not upmarket, but friendly and popular, the setting is fairly plain.
But it’s BYO with cheap corkage ($4 per bottle) and offers a 25% discount to Canberra Entertainment Book holders. As three dishes is plenty for four people, it’s a true bargain at around $10.50 per person including the corkage.
Three great dishes to try that offer a range of textures and flavours are the….
Chicken or Pork Katchu Set $17 that comes with great Kimchi and rice.
The seafood pancake $16 is fantastic too and stuffed full of seafood with a nice dipping sauce.
The Beef Bulgogi (BBQ beef in marinated in soy sauce) $17 is also excellent and includes rice. ( number 19. BBQ pork and squid in special sauce $17, is also very popular).
If there are six in a group ordering one seafood pancake and 2 chicken/pork Katchu ( or one of each ) and one Beef Bulgogi, and one BBQ pork and squid in special sauce would be perfect!
Open weekdays for lunch and six nights ( closed Sunday) for dinner, parking. At night is easy on London Circuit near the Supreme Court.
A definite must try!
