MELBOURNE | Kong BBQ is one of several restaurants in the Chris Lucas portfolio (Chin Chin, Hawker Hall, Kisume, Baby) and brings Japanese and Korean BBQ flavours to Richmond.

The 60 capacity restaurants exhibits all the trademarks of a Chris Lucas restaurant – fun signage, an open kitchen, eclectic soundtrack, attentive staff, and noisy (but not too noisy that you can’t have a conversation) vibrancy. It’s a formula that works well and makes for a great dining space.

On the menu you’ll find a lot of things to whet your appetite. The steamed buns are a must order – the soft shell crab with salted duck egg relish is outstanding, and the spicy pork belly with pickled cucumber and ‘crazy horse’ chilli spot on. There are traditional dishes on the menu, but that’s not really what Kong is about. Case in point, the addictive peanut-butter wings with gochujang and pickle.

There are always two seasonal rotating ramen options on offer, think spicy mushoom or roasted duck, and of course a number of BBQ dishes, which are cooked in ovens and over charcoal and wood in open fire pits. The 16-hour smoked Riverina Angus brisket with watercress and grilled chilli is a particular highlight.

The desserts also impress, with creative twists on Japanese and Korean flavours. The black sesame panna cotta with black sesame ice-cream and biscuit crumb is outstanding, as is the apple & walnut tart with miso butterscotch and Japanese whiskey ice-cream.

For drinks, the theme continues with delicious cocktails like the cherry-ume spritz, a delightful mixture of umeshu, cherry heering, lemon, elderflower, Prosecco, and cucumber soda. There’s also a great selection of local and imported beer, wine, sake, umeshu and whiskey.

With a menu that’s familiar yet different, Kong is the kind of place that rewards multiple visits, and is never boring.
