It’s hard to walk through Hardware Lane and not get distracted by the glitz between Bourke and Lonsdale. But go a bit further, towards Little Lonsdale, you’ll find a warm little Korean joint that does a cracking cooked lunch for under $9. K style bentos with your choice of bulgogi (pig, chook, cow), the pork lathered in a thickish, fiery red marinade that is more harmless than it looks, with a nice chilli hit balanced out by sweetness. For those who don’t like eating out of a segmented box, most of the Korean café favourites are there cooked to order. Value if you can make it all the way down.
