After smelling the delicious scents wafting from the Smokkim interior, we had to try a Korean BBQ feast and cook up some delicious meat!
We opted for two dishes – the Ox Tongue and the Lunch Special BBQ Tasting Platter. The BBQ platter was amazing value and really delicious! There was lots of variety, and we started off with the wagyu cuts, which were tender and juicy, and then had a few other cuts of beef, which were similarly good and perfectly complemented by the accompanying sauce. Finally, we had scallops and fresh prawns to grill, which were a fresh and tasty ending to our BBQ experience.
Our second selection, the Ox Tounge pieces, were good, but a bit too rubbery for my liking, which may just be because of the amount we cooked it and the specific cut of meat. Both dishes also came with accompanying sides, and the lotus pieces pickled in oils and spices were our favourite!
Smokkim has plenty of seating both inside and outside, with BBQ booths and other tables for ordering mains and hotpot. The fire was quick to get started, and it wasn’t smoky at all, which was great! It was a really unique and fun experience to cook our own food, as it was only our second time having Korean BBQ, and we enjoyed ourselves immensely! The staff were so lovely and helpful, and gave us suggestions on how to best eat some of the components of the meal.
For a great Korean BBQ in the Rhodes area, I would strongly recommend Smokkim! The BBQ Tasting Platter, at only $25, is excellent value, and with a small side, it would be more than enough for two to share.
