About Hwatu

The people of Carlton have been waiting for a proper Korean restaurant to open up shop, and to the delight of local foodies, it’s finally arrived on Lygon Street in the form of Hwatu, where diners can opt to partake in table-top cooking, chow down on some fried chicken or slurp down incredible soups and tasty noodles. This sleek restaurant has already become a hit local circles, drawing in guests from all over Melbourne’s inner northern suburbs (and beyond) with their modern take on classic Far Eastern cuisine. At lunch, there are specials like the spicy crispy chicken or the bulgogi stone pot stew, each served with a number of sides and a choice of soft drink. The real draw to this popular restaurant is undoubtedly the barbecue, so do make sure to order up one of the sets with meats like scotch fillet, ox tongue, pork belly or lamb cutlets. No matter what you’re craving at Hwatu, booking ahead of time is your best bet!

Amazing food and place :) Loved the fried chicken ~ Would also recommend the flavoured rice wine :) They open late too so that's definitely a plus
