MELBOURNE | Mapo Grill is a Korean BBQ restaurant in what’s fast becoming Melbourne CBD’s Koreatown. I recently visited for What’s On Melbourne to check it out.
Open past midnight every day of the week, Mapo Grill is a great option for a late night feed, and those looking for a fun place for group dining. There’s all of the Korean BBQ favourites, including a large assortment of meats, seafood and vegetables. Meat is of the highest quality, sourced from local farms and halal.
Be sure to try the marinated beef ribs and the Wagyu rib finger M7. Sets are a great way to go, giving you an assortment of meats and sides for a fixed price.
Popular sides include things like yukhoe (Korean beef tartare), cheesy grilled corn, kimchi jeon (pancake), and fried chicken. Also try the stews and noodle dishes. The kimchi stew is particularly delicious, as are the buckwheat noodles served in cold beef broth with boiled egg, sliced beef, cucumber, radish and Korean pear.
To drink, Mapo Grill offers Korean sodas and alcoholic drinks like soju, makkoli, and maehwasu. There’s also Korean and Aussie beers, local wines, the option to BYO for a small corkage fee.
