I've walked past Milliore many times (usually on the way to Starbucks or Harry's) and each time the place was filled with people. I kept telling myself 'I've got to try it out one day' and it just never happened. When Di suggested Korean food my mind quickly thought...Korean BBQ? But Di said she knew a little place in the Capital Theatre that I just had to try, so that's how I found myself finally eating at Milliore.
Di and Viv did the ordering whilst I happily nibbled on little dishes of preserved vegetables, kim chi and sprouts (from memory these were free?).
I can only describe this as tasting like fried chinese dumplings? though if you are a Korean person reading this post please feel free to correct me!
Mains - served with rice
The first dish was like a hot pot, it contained sausages, tofu, spring onion and instant noodles. Whilst it was really nice, the soup base tasted exactly the same as flavouring found in the Korean instant noodles that mum buys from the Asian supermarket (you know the ones in the red packets?) so it was a little strange eating this at a restaurant.
I’m not sure how the next dish was made because it came out bubbling and sizzling (quite the effect!) but once it settled down it turned out to be an egg dish that mum makes at home. I always refer to it as the ‘steamed egg dish’ but I don’t actually think it’s steamed though I don't quite know how you describe the procedure in english. Overall the dishes were really nice, the food comes out quickly and it’s not expensive (I saw that they do cheap specials at lunch time for $5 - worth a visit if you are near by).
I’m still a little confused as to what classifies as Korean food but I’m happy to go again to try something totally new, alternatively does anyone have alternative suggestions?
Next we headed off to Passion Flower where we
pigged out ate ice cream and continued on with our gossip session intellectual discussions.
