Explore the history of Melbourne's Korean restaurants
The city has long been a melting pot for immigration from all four corners of the globe, and the local Korean community is a vibrant example of the city's cosmopolitan feel. People from Korea arrived in Melbourne relatively recently, with many moving to Australia in search of jobs following the Korean War. Along with their dreams of a better life, the new arrivals brought their culinary culture to the city by opening top-quality Korean restaurants across Melbourne, much to the delight of locals. These days, Melbourne’s Korean restaurants are only going from strength to strength, with new, unique and innovative spaces springing up throughout the city at a rapid rate.
