The name Yeonga means ‘smokehouse' in Korean, though the space has a much more elegant aesthetic than this suggests. The interior of the restaurant is built based on the model of ‘Hanok', the term used to describe houses built using traditional Korean architecture. Oriental wooden screens separate bench-seated booths, and wide, industrial steel lights dangle in vertical rows. Exposed brick walls contrast oriental wallpaper, a contemporary finishing touch.
FOOD & BEVERAGE
The menu is an ode to traditional Korean cuisine. All meals are prepared using fresh meat that has never seen a freezer, cooked over 100% charcoal ensuring the best tender texture and rich flavour. Mains include Bi-Bim Bap, a favourite steamed rice dish served on a sizzling stone pot, served with Marinated beef, vegetables and some fiery chilli paste. The meat selection is extensive, with 13 variations of beef to BBQ alone. BBQ banquets are named according to proteins; choose from ‘let it beef', ‘gone with the beef' or ‘under the sea'. Beverage wise there is an array of Asian, European and Australian bottled beers to choose from, as well as a concise wine list.
