Been scouting around Adelaide for some Korean fare...anything that does not require me cooking like hot pots and barbeques as the scent does linger on for some time after leaving the restaurant. I know it is a traditional process that most people would love to practice but unfortunately for me, I think I need a well deserved weekend after burying myself with books for the past few weeks!
As most Korean outlets do not open on Sunday, Saturdays are probably the best days for me to fill myself with Korean food or else I might have to resort to ready-made sauces to satisfy my hunger! Although....these sauces can be quite convenient and handy to stock up for rainy days. Must resist the temptation to break my New Year's resolution!!
Giwa is located on King William Road and there is ample of parking space in the surrounding area for diners. The interior is not too elaborately decorated and brownie points for not placing tables too close to each other. Some restaurants tend to do that which makes creating conversations with everyone a huge hassle for me!
We enjoyed ourselves immensely at Giwa. The waiting staff weren't pushy or grumpy at us for taking our time with ordering and leaving the restaurant. It was a good night of catching up and surprise, surprise (well, not too much of a surprise as I sort of guessed hehe), my unimates were way too thoughtful and got me a cake to sweeten up the night! I did not expect a cake at all (mainly because I rarely get cakes for my birthdays ahem ahem) but I felt extremely blessed to have such wonderful friends that would allocate a fraction of their precious time for yours truly!:))
