Surasang - Eastwood


Another trip to Eastwood for Korean this week with a few friends from church landed us in Surasang, a popular-looking Korean BBQ place next to Eastwood Pub.

I have to admit, my brain's been kind of fried recently and so, I didn't make any attempts to look at the menu or to order, and left it all in the capable hands of my friends. This is what we ended up with :)

Awesome unlimited refills of side dishes (providing you can make the seemingly non-English speaking waiters understand what it is that you want). Most of these were pretty awesome. I particularly liked the seaweed & raddish one. Super yum! My friends seems to favour the sweetened potato one :)

side dishes

Seafood pancake came out looking large and round and plump. Lots of veges scattered throughout (capsicums, beans etc). It was slightly bland and tasteless. Lacked a bit of salt. I'm not sure if it's coz I'm meant to dip it in some kind of sauce but forgot, or if it's meant to be kind of bland...

Another already could dish which came out was the Bulgogi. This was really nice and sweet and tender, albiet slightly watery looking. Quite delish :)


The rest of the things we ordered required us to barbeque it. Dishes came out with slices of king oyster mushroom which I thought was a thoughtful touch. We ordered meats such as prime rib (beef), pork belly, ox tongue, marinated pork rib and ... other stuff? The ox tongue was actually really nice... not too tough yet nice and chewy and seasoned well to taste. Who could ever have thought that french kissing a cow could be so awesome? LOL

From memory, all of the meats were really quite tender and nice.

We left the place smelling like barbeque (as usual). The food here is quite good and price came to roughly $20 each (for the 8 of us). I guess the only road block is in the communication. The waiter's english isn't really top-notch (but it's still a bit better than our Korean).

Food - 8/10
Service - 6.5/10
Ambiance - 7/10
Value for money - 7.5/10
Overall - 29/40

Thanks for your Eastwood posts; I'm always a bit puzzled by what to eat when I visit as there are numerous options.

Haha - no problems
The overabundance of restaurants in Eastwood is both a good and a bad thing huh? :P
