Mrs Kim's Grill has been serving up authentic Korean fare in Richmond since 2013, with a special focus on traditional methods of marinating meat — with a hint of nostalgia and homesickness. The food here is delightful and the service friendly and charming, making this one of the best Korean barbecue joints in Melbourne. 

The damn good marinades are whats sets Mrs Kim's apart from the other Korean options around town — they're also a strictly guarded secret. From the grill, enjoy everything from butter garlic prawns to chilli marinated pork belly of soy marinated chicken. The highlight however is the 200g wagyu which is clearly of the highest quality. The marble on these badd boys is next level.

You can make a feast of the dining experience at Mrs Kim's Grill, starting with entrees like the kimchi pork soup, beef brisket and soy bean soup, and sweet chilli Korean fried chicken and adding a few salads. We suggest the smoked salmon and onion salad which is delightfully light and fresh. Add chopped chilli and garlic as you please. Vegetarians also have a few good options. These include the butter garlic corn, the mushrooms with garlic butter or the veg mix with a mountain of cheese on top. 

The set menus are for two and include the beef heavy 'Moo Set' with marinated galbi beef ribs, skirt teak and a choice of salads, while the 'Chilli Cluck Cluck Set' is a chicken option with a 400g chilli chicken as well as salads and rice. There is no veggie set menu though, so best to order off the a la carte. 

There are also all-you-can-eat menus for the especially hungry — only costing $45 per person for the bulgogi option, $59 for the seafood and steak feast and $69 for the premium wagyu barbecue buffet. Go ham on all cuts of protein, salads and sides for 90 minutes, testing the limit of your waistband. Pair it all with a few bottles of wine from home — Mrs Kim's Grill has a BYO license for wine only — and you're set for a fab and affordable night out with mates.
