In Korea You Braai At The Table

Try this at Chopsticks & Table, the Korean restaurant in town

Korean cuisine is one of the least explored cuisines of the East, and yet it’s healthy, delicious and sociable. Think piquant flavours, crunchy textures and satisfying variety. A new place in town, Chopsticks & Table, brings you the this East Asian nation’s food, with friendly service and a peek into Korean culture. 

“‘Chopsticks’ symbolises the culture of Korea and 'Table' represents the location of our restaurant, situated beneath Table Mountain,” says Korean owner John Park. “We owned a Korean Restaurant in Mowbray called Park’s Menu 10 years ago and due to recommendations from past customers to open another restaurant, we have decided to open this restaurant.” 

YOU KNOW KIMCHI. HOW ABOUT KIMBAP (THE KOREAN CALIFORNIA ROLL)?
Probably the most well-known of Korean dishes is kimchi, a spicy fermented cabbage served as a side dish. But there’s so much more to explore, such as kimbap (beef, cooked egg and vegetables rolled in rice, covered with a nori (seaweed) sheet and sliced into bite-sized pieces, and jeon (Korean-style pancakes made with beef, pork, tofu and vegetables) (R47–R159). 

SHARING FOOD FROM A BRAAI ON THE TABLE
The main menu offers a la carte dishes such as Korean ramen noodles called ramyeon and a Korean poke bowl filled with vegetables, rice and salmon, tuna or tofu (R95–R147). To get a taste of sociable Korean culture, try the table-sharing menus, which cater to up to four guests (R185–R620) seated at handcrafted tables with a grill in the centre.

Each menu includes a main ingredient such as pork (ssamgyeopsal) or beef (galbi), steamed rice, eight side dishes (bancheon), three sauces and lettuce leaves. The meat is cooked on the grill and to eat it, diners take a lettuce leaf, add meat, rice, a bit of a side dish and sauce, then wrap it up and bite into the deliciousness.  

Wash it down with soju, a clear spirit usually made from distilled rice and disarmingly potent.

There’s also a sushi menu, or eat as much as you like for R185 (R92 for children under 12) from Monday to Friday 12 noon–2pm and 6pm–10pm.

SING AFTER YOUR SUPPER
Another thing that’s firmly entrenched in Korean culture: Karaoke. At the back of the restaurant, you’ll find a karaoke room which needs to be reserved in advance. This private room is ideal for groups of up to six friends who love singing Korean pop music and English classics.
