K-Town Restaurant is located in the center of the Glen Waverley Shopping Center. It is located in the 52 Montclair Avenue Building along with its sister restaurant, BBQ-K that is located in the Ground Floor.
Spacious interior and seating area both indoors and outdoors from the third floor is one of the charms of this restaurant. This restaurant serves all the classic Korean Cuisines from the stews, fried chicken, Korean Fried Chicken (KFC) and their well known stir fry style cuisine. Since its sister company serves BBQ on the ground floor, K-Town only focuses on the main dish a la carte food only.
After we took some time to go through the extensive menu, we are finally ready to order. Our first choice and easiest would be the KFC! Boneless sweet chilli crispy chicken with sticky sweet chilli which is not too spicy. Just what we would love too. We always ask the sauce to be put on the side since Jeff is also an OG KFC lover so it is a win-win solution for both of us. The batter is not too thick and lightly seasoned so it works well with the sauce. Seafood pancakes were also picked as our choice. Thin and crispy kind of pancakes and the seafood was a great choice especially for sharing.
Of course you cannot miss their stir fry pork. The portion is something that is very noticeable. A generous size and considering the price of this dish you may be able to share it to 3-4 people. Great seasoning and it is just the right amount of spiciness from the gochujang (Korean Chili Paste). Pork is also tender and thinly sliced.
Traditional Chicken Soup or Samgyetang or Ginseng Chicken Soup was cooked with healthy herbs and dates. If you don’t mind eating some healthy and minimal seasoned soup this is the one for you. After the KFC and fried foods, we thought it would be nice to balance it off with something on the healthier side kind of soup! HOHOHO.. Love the homey style soup and the chicken was sooo tender.
The amount of foods that we ordered would be perfect for 3-4 people (if you each eat rice as well). The foods were pretty average but all hit the mark for value wise and portion. Service is prompt and quick although it will be a bit tricky to call the staff since the place is pretty spacious. Overall it is a nice place especially to eat with a big group.
Note: We’d like to say thank you to K-Town’s team for having us.
