Melbourne’s Premier 2nd Generation Korean BBQ – Hwaro

For the past seventeen years, a sizzling sensation has been captivating the taste buds of locals and tourists alike in the heart of Melbourne. Since its inception in 2006, Hwaro has been firing up the city’s finest Korean BBQ experience, and today, it proudly stands as a second-generation family-run business, carrying forward its legacy of mouthwatering delights.

At Hwaro, the definition of “best” takes on a whole new meaning. Their menu boasts an impressive array of delectable dishes that are sure to leave any food enthusiast in awe. The house dry-aged Wagyu tender strip and scotch fillet are tender masterpieces, expertly prepared to perfection. The LA Gal Bi is meticulously marinated, infusing each bite with an explosion of flavors. Meanwhile, the juicy Bulgogi and succulent Chilli pork belly take the culinary experience to new heights.

One of the most endearing aspects of Hwaro’s legacy lies in its commitment to preserving tradition. Each morning, the owner Kwan’s mother personally takes charge of the kitchen, bringing decades of expertise to the charcoal grill. This traditional method of cooking infuses the dishes with an authentic smoky aroma, setting Hwaro apart from the crowd.

However, amidst this impressive lineup, one item emerged as the real show-stopper – the PORK SKIN! Words fail to capture the delight that this dish brings to the table. For connoisseurs of high collagen & protein-rich chewy goodness, this is an absolute must-try. The bouncy texture and addictive taste of the pork skin make it an unforgettable highlight of the dining experience.

The hospitality and dedication of Kwan and his team deserve special mention. Their attentiveness and care ensure that every guest feels welcome and well taken care of. A visit to Hwaro is more than just a meal; it’s an extraordinary KBBQ experience that leaves a lasting impression on anyone lucky enough to partake in it.

As we reminisce about past visits, we couldn’t be happier to return to this old favorite after a few years. HWARO continues to reign as the go-to destination for a truly memorable Korean BBQ adventure. But be forewarned; the secret is out, and this place is in high demand! Booking early is essential to secure a table, as Hwaro’s popularity shows no signs of waning. Also, be prepared to indulge fully during the meal and take a refreshing shower after dinner.

Hwaro is more than just a restaurant; it’s an institution that celebrates family, tradition, and an unwavering commitment to delivering the most extraordinary KBBQ experience. If you find yourself in Melbourne, don’t miss the opportunity to embark on a journey of flavors and create lasting memories at Hwaro.
