1. Spicy stir fried rice cake with cheese $230
If you haven’t had rice cake (or topoki, as it is more commonly known), then I encourage you to look for it on a menu in a decent Korean restaurant – look for 年糕 and also find the spicy version 辣.
Served on top of a mini flame, it’s kept bubbling away and continues to further fry the topoki and make it a little crispy.
2. Seafood pancake $250
Seafood pancakes are usually a staple when going into a Korean restaurant, for my liking. But, I don’t know whether I would be ordering this one again – it is a little too greasy.
There is plenty of octopus, squid and shrimp inside and the pancake is quite thin. However, it is just too greasy.
3. WAYO fried chicken $230
The side dishes can be refilled at any time, so just ask. From left to right we have: potato 馬鈴薯, kimchi 泡菜, mushrooms 香菇, spicy beansprouts 豆芽, broccoli 青花菜 and chewy fishcake 甜不辣.
This is an absolute MUST order at WAYO. They were awesome! The chicken is deliciously tender and juicy, the outside is crispy and it feels like they used oats in the batter it is so crunchy. The flavour (although it looks greasy, but isn’t) is like a lemon honey flavour and it is sprinkled with some seaweed powder. Get it, definitely. Sorry I didn’t get a picture of the inside, but there was no stopping from the first bite to the last…
Overall, WAYO is certainly worth a trip. However, make sure to book in advance. You can either go in and book a couple of days in advance, or you can call them and do it that way.
Best dish: 3. WAYO fried chicken – You’ll thank me, I am 100% confident
Dish I wouldn’t order again: 2. Seafood pancake – Too greasy for my liking.
