Manna Corea

Deep in the dark crevasses of the Sydney CBD, there resides the basement Asian hawker style food court at 303 Pitt. It’s a bit dingy, and some say dodgy, but the brightly coloured plastic chairs brighten the place. Think of it as the lesser of Hunter Connection. A visit two years ago to the Korean joint, Manna Corea, ignited a love affair with the stone pot bibimbap. Having had many since, I’ll never forget that first one. A return to where it all began disappointed though, possibly a change in management? All the ingredients are there, sliced mushrooms, julienned cucumber, carrot, bean shoots, Asian greens, but the sliced meat seemed more poached and lacked the usual char of a fiery wok. Same with the bulgogi, the normal flavour of sweet soy and sesame exists but was a little wet and again lacked char. Unfortunately, into the dark crevasse of my restaurant list it goes.
