Right where Boronia Road meets Dorset Road is where you can find one of Melbourne’s best tributes to Korean cuisine. With as much modern-chic charm and over-explanatory menu descriptions as inner-city kimchi joints, Kim n Chi more than holds its own when it comes to authentic Korean done with a contemporary touch. Of course the (almost) eponymous hero features regularly, and it really is tasty, tangy kimchi they dish out here. Then there comes the traditional offerings that are a carnivore’s dream – crispy Korean fried chicken, deep-fried don-katsu pork cutlets, sizzling beef bulgogi barbecue – as well as a host of less familiar house specialties. Just down from Boronia station, Kim n Chi is handily placed for group gatherings in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, but it is just as suitable for impressing a date, marking a special occasion or catching up with pals over grilled meat and cold beers.
