MELBOURNE | Seouljaboy in Melbourne’s CBD is Korean fusion spot that mixes Eastern and Western flavours across a range of share plate dishes. The venue is unassuming from the street, and walking inside you’re greeted with an interesting space. It’s quite industrial, with a large ceiling, and lots of concrete. To one side is a bar, booths line one of the walls, and the rest of the venue is dotted with seats and tables. To the back, is a DJ booth, and the walls are covered with neon and projections. Confused?

We were invited to a food event held at Seouljaboy and when we walked inside we thought we might have entered a club by mistake. The music is loud, with the DJ playing an array of modern and old school hip-hop tracks. Food wise, it’s things like bulgogi charcoal sliders, slow cooked pork ribs, bulgogi bowls, kimchi fried rice, and rice paper rolls. A bit of everything, with some hits and some misses. The K-rice paper roll with steak tartare, rice noodles and cucumber was tasty, but the twice cooked pork belly with fresh leeks, cucumber and pancake wraps was dry and needed more ssamjang and sesame oil to cut through the fat of the pork. Drinks continue the Korean influence, with a selection of soju cocktails, Korean beers and local wines on offer.

We love hip-hop, and were really digging the tunes but it did feel like the venue was trying a bit too hard to be cool. Seouljaboy has potential, but needs to tone down the hip-hop slang and decide whether it’s a bar or a restaurant. Less focus on trying to be cool, and more focus on what matters most – the food, rather than the things that distract from it.
