Last week was the lovely Miss Hilary's birthday, and to celebrate we headed out to Goshen (189 Smith St Collingwood) for some Korean eats. Kate and Hil have both been before, but it was a first for Mr B and myself.
We started with the entree tasting plate for 4, ($25) which included delicious beef dumplings, vegetable dumplings, fried silken tofu and the most amazing prawns encased in a net of crispy potato. Served alongside was a half kimchi, half seafood pancake. The entrees were delicious and presented beautifully, and let's not forget great value for money!
For mains I had the chilli pork claypot, Mr B & Kate each had the beef claypot and birthday girl had a rather tasty sweet potato noodle dish. (Apologies, I neglected to note the prices, but I think around $18) The rice dishes were authentic in flavour, steaming hot and had a great kick of chilli. I only had a teeny taste of the noodle dish, but it too was delightfully chewy and flavoursome.
We also shared a "potato salad" which was actually just more of the crispy potato nets, served alongside a pile of crispy and perfectly dressed greens. Though not what I had expected at all, it worked perfectly with the spicy claypots.
We were so full that none of us had any room for dessert, but Kate tells me they are pretty special, so I guess we will just have to go back!
