I don't know about you all but time has flown too fast for my comfort. It seemed like not too long ago that i had just packed my bags and left Malaysia for Melbourne. The time in Melbourne is nothing but a blurry haze now. Fast forward to Brisbane, if not for the bank account, i wouldn't have realised that i have already been in Brisbane for 2 months and that it has slowly grown to be our new place to live. 10 more days and the office closes for a 2 plus week break, not to mention by then summer would welcome us with the hot sun and warm weather.
In terms of food hunting, the Brisbane CBD doesn't have too much to offer in terms of food at first sight but look closely and you will find a gem or two here and there.
JJ Jackson sits on Edward Street and from the decor, you probably would have thought they serve westernised asian food for the locals from their casual cafe decor. Look past the menu and into the food, you actually got yourself some very decent korean dishes.
Not exactly the most authentic dish to order but the temptation of fried prawns got me into ordering their version of a bento. It does include a decent bulgogi though.
The Bibimbap is authentic enough and comes with the hot bowl (for an extra dollar). Satisfying carbohydrates don't come any better than this.
Our second visit saw us ordering their Jap Chae and their stir fry squid with chili paste and both were very good options too.
Prices are slightly above one would pay for a Japanese curry chicken from Hanaichi (thats AUD6.50, i believe ) but you should be able to get yourself a meal between AUD 12-16 here.
Address and contact details:
Verdict: 3.5 stars out of 5 stars. A good lunch place if you wanted to eat Korean but it does cost slightly a bit more than your usual sushi rolls and sandwiches.
