For some time I was tortured looking at the delicious Korean Cheesy BBQ pictures looping on my Instagram. Just what is the hype all about?
Melbourne Inspired Menu
Ex-Melburnians residing in Surabaya, rejoice! The new and trending hangout cafe in Surabaya – Pokzilla is the perfect place to reminisce Melbourne over all things one’d miss about the multi-cultural city – coffee, Korean Cheesy BBQ and Zab Thai.
The location was easy to find. The cosy and lovely ambience set quite a standard. Frankly, I was disappointed as Pokzilla offers only a limited number of menu items and small food portions. Guess I was lenient as it is one of the rare few that offers mimicry of Melbourne in Surabaya.
The menu items are something students who study in Melbourne are familiar with – from the Cheesy Spicy BBQ that reminds one of CJ Lunch Bar’s unbeatable Chicken Cheese Bulgogi to Zab Thai’s famed Stir Fried Pork.
Though not comparable to the original Melbourne’s famous dishes, the food were pretty good for Indonesian standard making up for the steep price. Worth a try. Our favourites are the Cheesy BBQ and Hot Chicken Zab Thai.
