All good things need to start somewhere. The owners of Plus 82 have been quickly consolidating a position within the Adelaide food scene. With Plus 82 Pocha just off of Grenfell St, Plus 82 Gogi in the west end, and Mimi’s on Sturt St, Plus 82 is quickly building an empire of distinctive and delicious food in Adelaide.
Plus 82 is always looking to what more they can offer Adelaide and their customers, different ways they can change the game. Introducing the Korean Festival by Plus 82. Not really a festival per se but a new way that Plus 82 can offer more. For the most part its a regular evening out at Plus 82. Sitting out in the warm summer sun and enjoying some Korean favourites, like the always popular, KFC (Korean Fried Chicken), +82 Tteok-bokki (Spicy Stir-fry Rice Cake Dish with Fish Cakes, Onions, Cabbage, and Carrots, cooked in Goohujang) and +82 Kimchi Jeon (Kimchi Pancake with Spring Onion and Crispy Bacon, served with Aioli sauce). Plus 82 has made quite the name for itself so I don’t need to go too much into just how good their food is but for the uninitiated this is Korean food with a difference. Chucking in some western favourites and leaning on their divine sauces, Plus 82 is a Korean experience.
With the Korean Festival, Plus 82 are adding to the experience. First of all food is paid for in Korean won. You exchange you money at the start of the day from Australian dollar to won. Don’t worry, the money is fake so your not losing out on the exchange rate. With K-pop blasting out over the courtyard you can enjoy the flavours of Korea as well as a quick Korean cooking demonstration by the Plus 82 chefs and a lesson on the variety of ways to make the Soju and Beer ‘Soju Bombs’.
Only a couple different activities the sum of which is probably about 20 minutes. Pretty small in festival terms. This however is only the beginning. Plus 82 continues to move from strength to strength so I have no doubt as they continue to host events and offer more to their customers that their future Korean Festivals will be the buzz of Adelaide.
