Bang Lee Hwang, Belmore, Sydney

Belmore is like a baby version of Strathfield in terms of Korean restaurants. There are plenty of Koren restaurants there but they don't seem to be as popular as the ones in Strathfield at the moment. What is great about the Belmore places is that it is a bit more homely. The further you head away from the train station, the more it seems that way.

The good thing about a home cooked meal is that it just has that inexplainable taste that makes it feel like someone you know cooked it for you. The unfortunate things is that it also means that the meals sometimes take a bit longer to come out.

At Bang Lee Hwang, although the restaurant was relatively empty, we were warned of the wait for our dishes before we even ordered, lol.

Crispy Fried Chicken with shallots - $17 - I always wondered who first came up with the idea that having fried chicken with shallots would be a good combo. Such a simple idea, which seems to pop up on Korean cuisine menus. Here the chicken is crisp with a very light dressing of soy sauce. Enough to add some flavour but not enough to make the coating soggy. The raw shallots provides a refreshing contrast to the fried chicken.

Seafood Black Bean noodle on plate - $25 - A thick pile of noodles with a rich black bean sauce. This plate was literally humongous and we struggled to finish it all. It was loaded with onion, prawn, beef chunks and sprinkled with some random peas. The onion was slightly overpowering as you can see in the picture below. The ratio of onion to noodle was almost 50/50!
