Oppa Kitchen, Melbourne
When you’re in the mood for multiple fried things, Oppa Kitchen does a handy Tong dak (Korean fried chicken dish) which is served with fried rice cake, potato wedges as well as a heaping of Korean coleslaw salad, picked radish and peanut. This is a great fried salad concoction. The wedges and potato cake help it from feeling too heavy and there’s enough vegetables there to alleviate some of the fat guilt. The whole place seems to have a bit of fun and the staff and vibe is friendly. There’s two levels of seating, so usually no queues and everything comes out at you pretty hard and fast.
The other time I visited Oppa I went for the Dosirak, which is a meal bucket that features a meat selection on rice along with fresh salad, deep fried potato hash and pickled radish. I went for the grilled pork belly and this was a nice rice meal. I would have preferred a bit more of the potato hash but no complaints for the price.
