Kimchi Project – 2020 Menu (Auckland CBD, New Zealand)
It’s our third time here, second time to review them and every moment that I had been here was simply amazing. The food was spot on and had tried out something interesting, something new. This is also the same case to those of my friends I recommended this to, so if you haven’t tried this place then do so.
My usual visit here was on a lunch time, this is the first time I am having dinner here, so I don’t know what to expect. As we browse through the menu, prices for lunch and dinner are similar but not all of the lunch item are available for dinner. One of my favourite dishes here is the Kimchi Spag Pasta but during our last visit they don’t sell them anymore. Now I have to choose something different.
While choosing our dinner, I grabbed some Asahi 400ml (NZ$ 11.00), unlucky since we missed the Happy Hour spot which was 5:00PM to 6:00PM, so take note of that if you want to save a little moolah.
With my beer we started with Kimchi Waffle Fries (NZ$15.00), we always have this when we visit here, it’s like it’s a must. Basically they are Potato Waffles served with Kimchi, Sour Cream, Sriracha Yoghurt and Crispy Shallots. A perfect filler and a beer match.
We also started with some bao buns and we grabbed some Soft Shell Crab Bun (NZ$12.00) served with Pickled Vegetables, Chipotle and Salsa, for the second one it was the classic Slow-Cooked Pulled Pork Bun (NZ$10.00) served with Pickled Vegetables, Ssamjang Mayo and Crispy Shallots. While both were amazing, my favourite was the Soft-Shell Crab, so delicious and it reminded me of the Soft-Shell Crab Burgers of Andy’s Burger called Crabby Crab. It was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, it was a good-sized crab as well.
And since I was frustrated with the missing Kimchi Spag Pasta, I grabbed another pasta on the menu in the form of Chilli Oil Squid Ink Pasta (NZ$20.00), it’s a Squid ink Spaghetti served with Tiger Prawn, Calamari, Chilli Oil, Parsley Denkatsu, Garlic and Shredded Red Chilli. This did not disappoint, love the spicy kick and the very seafoody taste, good flavours.
Finally we had this Korean BBQ Pork Rice (NZ$21.00) served with Horseradish Cream, Bok Choy, Chickpeas and Sliced Almonds. Another great dish and I love that touch of Horseradish Cream which balances out everything in this meal. Sweet savoury deliciousness, similar to the ones you get in Korean Barbecue.
Well there you have it, The Kimchi Project you had done it again, keep up preparing those nice interesting dishes!
