Cora’s Korean BBQ Applecross

The first time I went to Cora’s… I enjoyed it so much I had to show it off to friends the following week. Cora’s is the most unique Korean BBQ joint in Perth because they use coal with two different grill plates. One for marinated meats and the other for everything else. I think Korean BBQ is perfect for winter because the heat from the BBQ keeps you warm.

Fair warning though, make sure you don’t go out afterwards because you will smell like a BBQ yourself.

It’s $36.00pp and you get unlimited food, a free soft drink and unlimited tea and coffee. The staff are always helpful and attentive.

Buffet Meats and Seafood

Cora's Buffet

Their uncooked buffet consists of marinated meats, prawns, mussels, pork belly, spicy chicken, beef slices and condiments like garlic, chilli and sauces.

I love how the meat is always cut very thin so it’s easier to cook and absorbs more sauce.

Korean Rice Wine!

Cora's Free Beer

The Bf had this but couldn’t finish it.

My Entree Plate

Cora's Sushi and Fishcake Sticks

The fishcake stick was very juicy and the sushi was nice.

Miso Soup

Cora's Miso Soup

I had some miso soup to start as well.


Cora's Sauces

From memory I think we tried the soy, chilli soy, chilli sauce and some of bean-y sauce.

BBQ Coal Grill for Marinated Meats

As you can see we tried a bit of everything. We also added raw garlic and chilli to the cooking meat for extra flavouring. Also, the cooked garlic and chilli pieces are delicious and crunchy. The grill above is the best for marinated meats.

BBQ Coal Grill for Perfect Crispy Meat

Cora's BBQ Grill for Perfect Crispy Meats

This second grill is used for non-marinated meats and perfect for my favourite item in the buffet…. Pork Belly! Otherwise referred to as bacon strips.

My Hot Plate

Cora's Hot Food

I grabbed a bit of everything from the hot food selection. I loved the noodles and saucy chicken wings.

Pork Belly! (Bacon Strips)

Cora's Bacon Strips (Pork Belly)

These perfect crispy pork belly pieces take a bit longer than the other meats, but it’s worth it. I love watching the fat drip off and igniting the flames for special effects and even crispier bacon!

My favourite condiment with the pork belly is a combination of sesame sauce with the salt mixture they offer.

Mixed Plate of Everything

Cora's Mixed Plate

For the prawns, I always find it more enjoyable when you peel the shell before cooking.

More food…

Cora's Marinated Meats

This in my second favourite, marinated pork on the bone. The marinate tastes like a sweet, dark soy-like combination.

My Dessert Plate

I helped myself to pieces of caramel and chocolate mud cake, watermelon, rockmelon, honeydew and orange.

My BF’s Dessert Plate

Cora's Tea and Jelly

My BF loves his jelly.

Be sure to book in advance if you have a large group of people.
