Tong 86, Northbridge

I love korean food and even more when I get to cook it up myself. I like Tong 86 because it’s a healthier alternative to eating out and it open till late.

Tong 86 Menu

Tong 86 Menu

The left side of the menu is the uncooked meat dishes available for the grilling. There is a cute photo of a pig and a cow where they have labelled the cuts of pork and beef for you.

Our Table

Tong 86

A hot plate in the centre of the table with metal utensils. Not the best idea since metal heats up and I did burn my tongue a few times so be careful.


Tong 86 Three Side Dishes

The sides today were pa muchim which is a spring onion salad, eomuk bokkeum which is fish cake mix and kimchi which is a popular fermented vegetable dish in a spicy sauce.

Three salads are served when ordering the meat dishes. Each additional side is 50 cents.


Tong 86 Salad and Stuff

Lettuce is given for a refreshing bite to the meal. I roll my meat in lettuce pieces and then dip in the sauces.

Pork Belly $10.50

Tong 86 Pork Belly

Thick cuts of fatty pork belly and onion rings. For the best results I prefer to leave the meat on for longer for maximum crispiness.

Neck Chain $12

This came out frozen! I wouldn’t order this again because the pork belly is better.

Beef Intercostals $11.50

Even with the picture on the menu, I’m still not sure what cut of beef this was. It had a lot of fat running through it which was lovely. I only sizzled this beef briefly because I like it medium rare.

Our Grilling Plate

Tong 86 Grilled BBQ Meats

The onion rings were so soft and sweet at the end of the cooking because it soaked up the meat juices.

Rice $2.00

Tong 86 Rice

Mushy carb-y goodness.

My Plate

I enjoyed my experience here and would have liked more sauces as they only provided a sesame salt and soya bean dipping sauces. Regardless it’s a great hang out experience, it has Korean pop in on a widescreen, has a freezer of korean ice creams and open till 12am on weeknights.

    Yum! That looks so good. I had no idea it was there either. There are so many hidden gems in Northbridge. Definitely going to check this one out.

    (If intercostals are the same on animals as humans, it’s the muscles between the ribs)
