1. BBQ Thin Pork Belly
BBQ foods are synonymous to the Korean culture. At Mi Na Rea they serve up thinly cut slices of fatty pork belly cooked to a juicy and tender perfection. The best part of this BBQ dish are the crispy sides charred to a crunchy delight. This saucy dish is perfect with a bowl of white rice and a sunny side up egg. While you’re at it, get a hot serving of Kimchi JJigae. This bright red kimchi stew served in a hot stone bowl stuffed with assorted vegetables, bean curds and Korean glass noodles will become your new favourite meal!
At Mi Na Rea- this humble and cosy restaurant serves up ten types of banchan (side dishes) with your meals- impressive, really.

2. Korean Hot Pot
If there’s one thing we know about Korea, it’s the never-ending slurping sounds. In Korean culture, it’s considered a compliment if you loudly slurp on your soup and noodles, indicating that you’re enjoying your food. They serve tasty soups here at Daorea Koran BBQ both in mild and spicy flavours.
Try the Haemool-Tang, a hearty seafood hot pot is the perfect meal to have when you’re in the mood for soup! You’ll be treated with mussels, crab, prawns, fish, clams and a whole lot of silky tofu.
Give the Kimchi-Jeongul a try while you’re here. The spicy combination of pork, kimchi, tofu and Korean noodles served while they’re still bubbling will instantly wake your sense. Prepare a tissue close by to wipe of those beads of sweat from the spiciness.
