The hot bowl concept is great, but not when the bowl is spitting with oil! That was my first impression of this chain like Korean restaurant. The spice base has one note- slightly spicy, and the meat has been rubbery and overcooked everytime we have given this eatery a chance (it was close to our office). The cold noodles were probably the worst version of classic Korean that this place has destroyed.....
Upseting!

My husband and I love asian food and tried this Korean food court restaurant in Cairns last week. We sampled a few different dishes and it seems that everything tastes the same, they just add different meats. I thought that it was a little pricey for the small amount of meat compared to rice. The kimchi was okay, better than some we have had in other places.

Fast, fresh, quality food at a very reasonable price. Delicious! BBQ beef comes out on a sizzling hot plate with rice & kim chi

I'm not a big fan of eating in Food Court type places. Usually they are the preserve of mass produced food lacking in any sort of real appeal - they are there for the quick, unworried fix. However, Orchid Plaza where Corea Corea is located is a bit different. It only has Asian food restaurants (i pretty sure i haven't seen any others there) and maybe this means something. Corea Corea serves food that while quickly and efficiently served in a typical food court setting somehow seems so much better. It has to be the food. The food is great, so fresh, SO SO hot (let it cool for a while is my advice or you sepnd loads of time trying to talk and suck cool air into your mouth) and with lots of taste.
So while the setting is a bit rubbish the food more than makes up for it and even trancends the location a little. After a while i actually thought it was a pretty cool place to be eating. There is a rating below that is linked to Romance of the setting. At first glance you would give it a one star rating, but after a while the food overcomes this and the unpretentious nature of the place will really suit some people and so it could actually be quite romantic!

PS the prices are very good too!
