Korean fried chicken 2.0. Far out I love them. There were 8 of us when we visited Gami. Thank God the wait was like only for 30 minutes. Line wasn’t too long and turnover rate was quick this is why I love Asian restaurants. We eat and we Go! Hehe. Small place and quick service. I love how they give you some side dishes like salad and prawn chips. As we were starving we chumped all of them down! We ordered half and half boneless chicken with sweet chilli and garlic sauce. Seafood and spring onion pancake. Tteok bok ki. Potato heaven. We shared the following dishes with 4 and we were stuffed. They don’t mess around with the portions and price was cheap as chips!!
The chicken was crunchy and juicy with the sauce. The flavour was perfect. Just as described. The pancake was a let down. There wasn’t much going on there. No flavour. Potato heaven was pure cheese!! You can taste all the different cheese. If you love cheese you will love this dish. Tteok bok ki… this dish is amazing. I could eat 10 of these. It’s a Korean dish that is like noodle rice but deep fried with chilli. I don’t know to explain it but give it a try. Crunchy on the outside and soft in the inside. Chewy with a spicy hit every bite. Overall this place is awesome if you would like amazing kfc! Thus kfc 2.0.
So I heard new chicken shop opened up at cabramatta! So you know me. I had to check it out!! The reviews said it was going to be one of the best in the West for Korean fried chicken. So pumped. When I arrived at the venue it was kinda cool. Trendy with music and dimmed lighting. I went late at night as the store was about to close. The service was good and friendly. No complaints. We ordered the pulled beef brisket burger and brisket loaded fries with some original fried chicken with pho juice. When I tried the food I was really disappointed. The burger had no taste and it was cold. The loaded fries were soggy and cold as well. The chicken was super oily and had no flavour at all. The pho sauce was just weird. Maybe they had a bad night. Cause I’m reading through these reviews and a lot of people seems to like it. You win some. You lose some.
I donut really care about my donuts… jokes!!!!! I love my freaking donuts!!! If it’s 2 things that I care about is my chicken and waffles and my donuts! Hands down I think grumpy donuts has the best fatty maple bacon donuts! I mean yeah shortstop is great as well but grumpy donuts is a typical American donut joint! I have to say the flavour and presentation is on point. It ain’t dirty and pleasing to the eyes. I had the maple bacon donut and man it’s huge!!! The crispy bacon on the top is glazed with maple syrup.. omg.. amazing.. it’s like a maple bacon jerky. So chewy and crunchy at the same time. The donut perfectly fried and fluffy. The maple glaze is like maple syrup in an icing format. Not too sweet. Just perfect.
I also had the strawberry original donut as well that looks like the Simpson’s donut. The zestiness of the glazing was just perfect with the donut fluffy as well. I wish the new place was closer to the city though. I would make myself fat eating them donuts. Good thing or bad? Not so sure. Hehe. Love your work grumpy! It honestly tasted like the donuts I’ve tried in the USA. Amazing.
Oh gotta love Frangos!!! One of my fave places to eat. The chips and chicken burger are so simple yet so delicious. Well that’s because of the mayo and chilli sauce combo that comes with it. Oh and don’t forget that chicken salt!!! 12 dollars and you get a chicken burger with some fries and a drink. That’s a freaking bargain mate!!! And best yet it’s quality with quantity!!! Gotta love it! I love how the chicken is quite crisp when grilled. I usually struggle to finish all of the meal. They are definitely generous with the chips as well. Yummmmmmmmm… I will eat here like literally every week!! Go get some! Watch out you will get addicted to it!
One of my mates told me about this place as having one massive fat pho serving. So ya know.. I’m a phomo… a man that’s fearful of missing out on eating pho. I had to try it. I ordered their favourite famous mint signature pho with wagyu beef and when it came out it was gigantic. Well the bowl was. The taste was different. It had some sort of pepper kick in it. I didn’t really dig it like my mate did. It may appeal to other people. But for me it was a pass. I like my traditional pho broth. Kudos to the chef for trying something different. Also the bowl was huge but the portion of the actual noodles weren’t that much for the price. Overall it was ok. Good experience of different pho flavour. But didn’t get the oomph for me!
It may not have the best service or vibe or space. But man. It serves out the food quite quick. Gotta love my people! Delicious. Affordable. It’s a place where you enjoy some handmade dumplings and noodles with no fuss. Eat in and go out with a bang. It doesn’t empty your wallet if you’re in a budget. Guarantee you will go out with leftovers on your table. Always leaving too full! You can bring a group here but you’d be waiting. I would go here with 1 or 2 people for a good feed. My motto… you know it’s a good joint when it’s focus is on food with some old school traditional Chinese chefs. Go try it out and you will not be disappointed. I believe the owner, an old Chinese man will be playing the violin as you eat/wait. One of the best in Sydney!
Baot time I visit this place! I heard a lot of good things about this place and glad they opened their own store in Newtown! Got greeted by a friendly waiter. Cool new Asian vibe when you enter with a slick clean bar. I ordered the bao burger with an extra Pattie, Loaded fries cause what is life without fries, cracking pork bao, deep fried golden gaytime bao and pandan balls! Oh maannnn it was good. Like everything… the burgers were juicy and succulent. The cheese melted in my mouth just the way I like it. Fries with Japanese curry reminds me of being in Japan. Crackling pork bao is a classic.. a bit too soft for my liking. Deep fried golden gaytime.. OMG enuf said. Last but not least the pandan balls! I freaking love it!! 4 out of 5!!!! Go visit!
