Kim Chi Hut

With beautiful photos of snow peas, capsicums and other fresh veggie produce, you could have been excused for thinking they just racked them for the local Safeway in the Glen. They certainly don’t allude to the fact that it’s a damn fine Korean restaurant.

I miss the Korean in Sydney but Kim Chi Hut definitely helps ease the pain. Hot pots and DIY BBQ on the menu but I find joy in having the chefs to the work. And what good work it is, shown in the seafood pancake filled with prawns, squid, spring onion and chilli that’s more brown than other versions but the soft pancake texture is still there. Jap chae of translucent glass noodles and stir fried beef and capsicum is lathered in a sweetish soy gravy and a good example of the dish. Lovers of mild chilli will enjoy the pork bulgogi and spicy chicken, though the level of heat can be raised on request. Control given to the diner for the bibimbap, a chilli sauce can be added to the hot stone pot and stirred through the rice, sesame oil, julienned carrot, cucumber, mushrooms and finely sliced beef mixture.

Despite being hidden on the unglamorous strip of Coleman, it’s a shining light. It might not be a fresh addition to Glenny but a welcomed one.
