The last time I went to TK Something BBQ, it was just starting out - there were about three tables full (we took up two of those tables). So they looked like they were off to a shaky start.
Over a year and a half later, I came back for dinner with some friends and every single table was full. This place was chockers and very popular especially with the younger crowd, sick of the typical / traditional food court eatery that makes up the rest of Canley Vale and Heights.
For those who haven’t been, it’s $29.50 for a 2 hour all you can eat Korean BBQ fest. This also includes your normal drinks (e.g. mugs of tea) and epic DESSERTS (more on that later)!
Some wins for the night:
1. We were misbilled and our bill ended up being $17 each (or $15 each if you don’t count that jug of cranberry juice that we ordered) - SUPER WIN;
2. There was so much MEAT;
3. I had 4 creme brulees. (So much for lecturing my parents about my no sugar diet just last night…);
4. They used one tea bag per mug and kept bringing out more mugs with fresh tea bags in it - not cheap at all!
After going through all that glorious meat (and being the only one to eat some rice and salad, to the disdain of my friends), we headed straight for the dessert bar.
The dessert bar included fruit (rockmelon and watermelon), chocolate mousse, some yoghurt thing, cold sweet dessert soup (where you can add your own toppings such as lychee) and a miscellenous hot dessert soup.
However, the king of the desserts was the creme brulee.
Who doesn’t love that first crack at caramelised, blow-torched sugar layer with a spoon? Or the creaminess of the custardy bit? (If you don’t love it - there’s something really wrong with you).
How good was it? THIS GOOD! x 12 creme brulees. Mmmm.
I think this is the first time ever I haven’t made a loss whilst visiting a buffet type restaurant (fair enough, it was due to a billing error, but still…). It seems like we made our money back just on the 11 creme brulees we had between 3 people.
That my friends, is a cause for celebration!
