Looking for somewhere to eat in The Mix at Chatswood Place? Look no further than the top-notch Korean eats of The Evergreen — a lush greenery-filled eatery offering a menu of Korean classics with a subtle Italian influence.

Head Chef Jun Hwang, who has previously led kitchens at Sheraton Grand Sydney and Manly Greenhouse, leads an accomplished team featuring several chefs who have worked across hatted Sydney restaurants like Tetsuya'sKindredLouLou and The Charles. Together, the team has created a menu that plays on the fun and nostalgic elements of Korean cuisine, creating a menu perfect for date-night dinners, midweek lunches or big group catch-ups.

Among the menu highlights: a massive Korean barbecue platter featuring wagyu beef, pork belly, chicken, mushroom and corn served sizzling hot; a pair of loaded burgers available for lunch only, one fried chicken and one prawn; bulgogi beef noodle salad; and steak tartare with seaweed crackers.

The Italian influence sneaks in through dishes like the kimchi arancini, which introduces the beloved fermented cabbage to the cheesy Italian starter — and the Korean-style gnocchi made from spicy pasta sauce, shallots, parmesan, tête de moine and chives. You'll also find Hwan's take on a tiramisu made with Toby's Estate coffee and dalgona.

Patrons can also book in for a Korean take on a Sydney favourite: high tea. For $65, the package includes a tower of tartare, beef skewers, octopus, tuna tarts, cooked prawns, kimchi arancini, seasonal fruit tart and banana panna cotta — plus your choice of beer, wine or tea.

Rounding out the menu is a drinks list featuring a selection of soju-infused cocktails, plus a kimchi margarita, mandarin highball, and a refined range of wines and tap beers.
