The Team Behind Jung Sung Has Opened a Wagyu Omakase Restaurant with a 15-Course Set Menu
Woo Wol is bringing the omakase experience to Chippendale, specialising in top-notch cuts of wagyu beef.
November 10, 2022
A wave of new omakase restaurants opening in Sydney is in full swing right now, with these set menu experiences now available at the likes of Sokyo, TOKO, Besuto, Bay Nine and Senpai Ramen, just to name a few. The latest outpost to arrive in Sydney with a 'leave it to the chef' mentality is Woo Wol, an omakase restaurant from the Jung Sung team that specialises in one cut of meat — wagyu beef.
Lunch at Woo Wol consists of barbecue sets, bento boxes and a range of snacks ranging from fried dumplings to bibimbap. Come dinner, you can keep it simple with a barbecue platter featuring wagyu, pork, chicken, seafood and vegetables to enjoy in the main dining room or the al fresco area. These platters are available in a series of different sizes depending on how big your group is. There's also a $70 wagyu cake on the dinner menu, but if you want the full Woo Wol experience, you'll bypass all of this and head for the omakase kitchen.
Here, you'll be treated to a 15-course set menu for $250. This lavish dining experience kicks off with spanner crab with egg custard, sea urchin and salmon roe. From there, just a few of the highlights include beef tartare with caviar, black truffle eel, an A5 wagyu cube roll and the sashimi of the day before you're given a lime cleanser and you move onto the centrepiece of your meal.
Your omakase experience builds towards the chef performance barbecue where you'll be able to sample a variety of cuts of wagyu. This is accompanied by ban sang (small side dishes) which includes rice of the day, soup of the day and a variety of traditional sides.
Whether you opt for barbecue or omakase, you can pair your meal with a glass of Floud of Suntory beer, Korean rice or raspberry wine, or your choice from the soju and spirits menu. These carefully curated selections include Jinro is Back retro soju if you're looking for something simple, grape or peach ChumChurum soju if you want to get sweet and fruity, or premium picks like the $55 JinMaek Wheat Soju and Han Chung Korean Cheongju sake.
Woo Wol is located at Shop 7/6 Central Park Avenue, Chippendale. It's open for lunch Thursday–Sunday and dinner Monday–Sunday.
