Chogajip Korean Restaurant

Last weekend I had a mad craving for a steak but for some reason I ended up at Chogajip* on Essex Street. I can’t remember how I got from steak to Korean food but I’m very glad I did. It was once of those places where you want to eat the whole menu and you’re tormented by a really good choice of dishes. I’m just thinking about the soup I had… I could so hover a bowl of it up right now. Bonus points: it’s not that expensive mains are about $15 up. I’ve walked past there so many times and I was thinking why have I never gone in before, find the florescent strip lights outside a tiny bit off putting but once you’re inside it’s actually nicely lit and has a warm atmosphere.

We were there early on Saturday so it was a little empty at the time so I didn’t feel like a complete tool when I took my camera out and started taking pictures of my food.

    That’s my favourite place in Freo. Great food, great service and cheap, too!

    May have been good back when you tried it, but last time I went, it was $19 for what was basically a side-plate, extremely poor service and a completely empty restaurant. I took my parents there and we all left hungry and unimpressed. Took Bae Kee in the city is miles better (and only $13, for a bigger dish), but I have since learned how to make my own at home anyway :)
