Hmmm, this year I do travel alot and lets start off with my Australia journey that I have done which I have always wanted to go back visit my friend. This round did not stop by Melbourne but head direct to Sydney. One of a trip that is pretty last minute but nevertheless I have to thanks to Jun Wen for all the best hospitality and knowing I love food he bring me to all his favourite restaurant – Bassim.
On my late arrival, it was well just nice for dinner time. Therefore he introduce me one of the place that he drop by at least once a week to whack on all his favourite beef slice. When he ask me am I okay for Korean BBQ, of course my reply is hell yah. As far as I know till date, there are still none of the Korean restaurant can still beat anything here yet.
Bassim – Steak and Seafood House is like a neighborhood restaurant that located in Strathfield which is about 25 minutes drive away from city. The reason being here is that nearby my friends house.
Its a place that fully pack with humans during dinner time as I snap this pic when they are about to close the shop. Yap, we ate from 8.30pm till closing. That’s how much and how long we spend our time there.
This is what I mean when getting a spot in the restaurant wasnt easy.
If without any conversion rate, the price is definitely much cheaper to any Malaysian restaurant can offer.
Normally, Korean restaurant will give you alot of side dish, but this shop give you selected side dish to pair along with their bbq.
AFter BBQ this is the ingredient that you have to wrap along with, a slice of cabbage, garlic, cucumber and green chili.
Dipping along with the sauce to make it even more perfect.
Charcoal BBQ that bout to bbq your favourite ribs away.
Before that, order Denjang (if I am not mistaken) Bean paste soup with vegetable and beef. A perfect dish to go along with its winter outside something to bring back body heat. Pouring the soup over to the rice just makes it a perfect combination to eat along. Slightly sour with mild spiciness.
2 types of meat we order for the night is Spicy Dak Galbi @ AUD 16 marinated along with special spicy sauce.
Here comes our ribs So Galbi @ AUD 19 with 3 portion. Look how pretty the red meat is with their own special marination sauce.
AS the ribs was added on top, the smell of it generated is aromatic. Cant wait to get a bite of it.
Grill till its medium well and left the bone there to char grill. Beef had been own grill to perfection, flavorful, and the seasoning that they use, makes the beef slice juicy. I keep picking up the beef slice and keep ordering till I was totally stuff.
Along the way my friend order this, to be eaten along with Beef slice to make it even more kick. We ended up ordering 7 portion of beef and 3 portion of chicken for 4 pax. Definitely all of us are big eater. :p It was a very satisfied dinner, whereby I have long forgotten the best taste of it. At the end of the meal only understand that why this is his favourite Korean place or he rate Bassim is the best Korean BBQ restaurant in Sydney so far. If you do have the time, this is definitely a restaurant worth trying.
