Seoul Project, Sydney

Seoul good in the hood mah homies! Sydney's Townhall area has just gotten more delicious with the addition of a new Korean restaurant. The new Seoul Project is tucked away in the laneway-like Wilmot Street. 

The place has a contemporary tavern feel with industrial fittings. It's definitely not your typical traditional Korean restaurant. It offers modern Korean cuisine, which breaks the boundaries of traditional cooking. Basically in their case, Korean cuisine meets Dude Food. You can still expect the fermented based dishes, Bo ssam, bibimbap and jjigae dishes. There's also Western influenced dishes like kimchi fries and corn cheese pizza! 
Brown and black rice mix
Kimchi jjigae
Their kimchi jjigae or hot pot/stew ($16) is super tasty and perfect to have in this cold weather! It has a kimchi infused broth, tender pork ribs, tofu, enoki, and other vegetables. I loved the mild to medium heat and sour flavour in the broth. The smoky notes in the soup gave it depth. Perfect for adding to your rice! The sweetness from the soft veggies gave balance to the dish. 
Corn cheese pizza

The corn cheese pizza ($16) is not an actual pizza but rather a smart and mind blowing play on an Italian classic. The base is a buttery flaky pastry topped with corn, scallions and gooey melted cheese. It all worked so freakin' well! It also had hints of garlic and sweet chive flavours.
Snow Korean fried chicken
Then the main event: their snow Korean Fried Chicken ($18 half chicken). This one belongs up there as one of the best Korean Fried Chickens in Sydney. The rippled coating of the chicken was super crunchy and the meat was juicy and flavoursome. The cheese powder was like powdered twisties with tiny notes of garlic and sweet onion flavour. It was a complete delightful sensory experience indeed!

I will definitely be back to try their original Korean Fried chicken ($17), tteokbokki ($26) and oven platter (which is a set of beef ribs, pork ribs, chicken wings, and roasted pork belly with chips and salad - $45).

Ah mashita!
