MELBOURNE | Mansae Korean BBQ is a Korean BBQ venue on A’Beckett Street in Melbourne’s CBD. We stumbled across it en route to somewhere else and, overwhelmed by a sudden urge for Korean BBQ, stepped inside.

The space is clean, modern, and simple. Timber furniture, polished floors, exposed pipes and wires, raw brick and concrete walls, and a few tiled areas. It makes for a somewhat cold environment that’s not really offset by anything. There’s a lot of natural light coming in from the large floor to ceiling windows – some greenery could make good use of the sunlight and perhaps some art on the walls too would help make the space a lot more welcoming.

Thankfully the staff are friendly and attentive, which gets you focusing on the reason you come here – the food. Each table at Mansae comes equipped with gas charcoal grill, which the wait staff use to cook the meat fresh as you eat – one of the things we love about Korean BBQ. Mansae pride themselves on using the highest quality, locally sourced ingredients – premium wagyu beef and prime pork. You can order individual cuts, or go for one of the meat sets, which is what we did.

The ‘Happiness’ set gets you generous servings of four different meats for $80.00 – marinated wagyu cube roll, wagyu rib finger, prime pork belly, and wagyu beef brisket. All the meats are delicious, and we were particular fond of the cube roll, which is tender and full of flavour, with fat that melts in your mouth. The meat sets come with an assortment of refillable ban chan, lettuce leaves, and three sauces, so you can mix and match your bites as you go. Kimchi and meat lettuce cups are a great option.

Along with the BBQ meat there’s a decent selection of other dishes on the menu. Think jjigae (stew), savoury pancakes, and beef tartare. We opted for a serve of the gimmari twigim – potato noodle spring rolls wrapped in seaweed, which were quite light and flavoursome.

If you’re thirsty, the drinks menu features Korean and Japanese beer, Korean liquor, soju and rice wine cocktails, and umeshu. For those who don’t want booze, non-alcoholic drinks both Western and Korean, are offered.

The price of the meat at Mansae is higher than other Korean BBQ restaurants in Melbourne, but when you take your first bite it’s clear why. The quality really is a cut above the rest, and makes for a very satisfying experience.
