Gangnam Korean Restaurant - North Strathfield

Previously named Jangdory, this Korean restaurant in North Strathfield seemed to have capitolised on the recent PSY - Gangnam Style craze, changing their name to 'Gangnam'. Compared to previously, there is a wider selection of foods and the incredible Korean patron ratio seems to make it legitly Korean.

We had been here previously whilst it was Jangdory and found the food to be pricey but yummy. After their name change, I think that their prices have stayed at their high point - definitely expensive for Korean food standards. But we were already there and seated so... oh well. We ordered the fish cake hot pot ($35) to share.

We were first greeted with a selection of Korean side dishes. All were relatively yummy. My favourite was probably the chili radish cubes. I even braved the green chilies and was surprised to find that they were not spicy at all! Our fish cake hot pot came out MASSIVE! Sooo much fish cake! The soup was clear and comforting (especially on a dreary rainy day) and the fish cakes were quite yummy. But honestly, there's only so much fish cake one can eat. Next time, we'll have to remember to order this when more people are around!

So even after their name change, they continue to attract a lot of Korean patrons. The quality of their food is good, albiet pricey. But you get what you pay for :)
