Fooshion travels to Campsie, one of the hearts of Korea town in Sydney, to visit literally THE best BBQ place (well I have tried several BBQ places) in whole of Sydney: Se Joung.
There were the 6 of us, a full house of Fooshion family, and we ordered the Gal-bi, Pork Chul Pan, Octopus Chul Pan and Tofu Chigae. The waitress was very polite and the place and service was still very much traditional, you’ll see what I mean about the service. The place still had the setting of sitting on Tatami while enjoying scrumptious food. Then the side dishes were served.
From back to front: Spinach with chili paste, Kimchi, White radish soaked in vinegar, eggplant and bean sprouts with mentimun.
After a while, the lady came and served us with Gal-bi. As mentioned above, the service was still very traditional because unlike other BBQ places, Se Joung’s waitress assist its customers in cooking the BBQ meats.
The Gal-bi was sweet and tender, a soft tousling pleasure to one’s taste-buds. It was enjoyable to eat it wrapped with lettuce. Next the pork chul pan came.

Then came in the octopus….
The pork belly was DELICIOUS, for pork lovers, you’ll go head over heels. The octopus was squishy, in a good way. However, I am prone to seafood allergies. Thus I could not enjoy the octopus to the epitome of pure contentment, so I am unable to judge the taste. But my older brother and father mentioned that the pork was 100x better than the octopus.
This was my favorite for the day, I have tried many tofu chigae (tofu beancurd soup) and this one definitely beats my previous favorite from Cafe Cya. I loved how soft and silky the mixture of tofu and egg was, this was FOODGASM. The spicyness was just right for me and the taste was overwhelming, I ended up monopolizing this dish.
After the whole food-fest finished, our tummies were just so happy. In addition, the cost was not as expensive as we thought it would be, compared to the other Korean restaurants in Sydney CBD such as Arisun, Madang or BBQ city. This place is therefore HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
