04 Aug Dari Korean Cafe and Bar, Melbourne CBD
Something different has come to Hardware Lane. Dari is the city’s new Korean sandwich bar and cafe, and they’ve got quite an eye catching menu. Ordering one of their special lattes is highly recommended. The Black Sesame Latte has a strong sesame flavour and isn’t sweet, whilst their Job’s Tears Latte with soy is made extra tasty with the sprinkling of toasted walnuts on top.
K-Street Toast may look simple in appearance, but it’s a solid sandwich filled with egg omelette, carrot, onion, maple onion mayo, ham, American cheese, cabbage and ketchup.
My favourite of the two is the Spicy Pork Bulgogi Bun. It’s packed with both flavour and lots of bulgogi, and as with the drinks, the bulgogi isn’t overly sweet like a lot of Korean food in Melbourne tends to be. The Egg Bbang (gyeran bbang) are made to order so a little patience is required, but the result is well worth it. When it arrives it smells great. Tastes good too, complete with crispy bits on top.
Dari brings a uniqueness to the Melbourne cafe scene that’s much needed. Their generous servings and flavoursome food is set to satisfy your curiosity and your stomach.
