Arisun, Haymarket

IMG_20150123_221213Growing up with parents who constantly stress on the importance of fresh produce, I always have a soft spot for naughty food like instant noodles and fried chicken (it’s perfectly normal to crave for something you can’t get, right?). And to soothe my craving, Mr. D and I decided to try Arisun in the CBD.

I always love Korean hot pot. A steamy spicy pot with the infamously delicious Shin Ramen, kimchi, and other savoury goodness? I am all in! But Mr. D loathes the sausages and luncheon meat in it. Fried chicken, on the other hand, is one of our all-time favourites. When you put the two together, it’s not too hard to lure him to a Korean restaurant. 😛

The Fried Chicken Strips with Wasabi Mayo and Shallots (AUD $32) was a bit bland and dry. It wasn’t too bad, but when originally ordered we didn’t realise they were boneless. As any chicken connoisseur would know, you always get more flavour by cooking it on the bone. Yet, they are very easy to eat, and it’s a perfect snack when you are out with friends or on a date. Although the price was AUD $32, it was a very big serving.

Moving on to the hot pot section, we placed our bet on the Spicy Sausage and Vegetable Hot Pot (AUD $38). This is a classic Korean comfort food. It certainly was not very healthy but as a once in a while treat, it hit its spot. For those who are not familiar with this dish, it’s basically a whole bunch of hotdogs, sausages, and hams, served with a spicy broth and instant noodles. It was perfectly paired with the large size beer Mr. D ordered, seeing that it’s quite a salty dish.  We definitely weren’t expecting that much sausages and luncheon meat, and have had better versions of this dish before.
