Imagine if one day KOrea turned to MexiCO and said “Hey there cutie… wanna make a baby?” Well that baby would be Ko and Co. This small cafe-style space serves a hard-hitting hit list of Korean Mexican fusion that goes down well with their array of fresh fruity soju cocktails.
Ko and Co Soju Bar is the result of husband and wife Frank and Sarah Lin.
Fried Chicken Korean style served with house Kimchi Mayo and Pickled Radish
This is without a doubt the most popular dish on the menu. The succulent bites of chicken (which are boneless) are delightfully crispy and go excellently with the spiciness of the house kimchi mayo and the sweetness of the pickled radish.
Spicy Pork Belly and Beef Short Rib Sliders
These bite size burgers have soft brioche bun filled with a crunchy cabbage slaw, kimchi mayo and either melt in your mouth spicy pork belly or traditional korean beef short ribs.
Spicy Pork Belly Tacos
I’m a really big fan of Korean pork dishes and these tacos didn’t let me down. The pork was beautifully cooked, spicy and full of flavor while still staying crispy.
Korean Fried Chicken Burrito
These burritos were filled with a spicy kimchi fried rice and Korean fried chicken and really encompassed the Mexican-Korean fusion the restaurant is aiming for. I did find it a little too filling and wished there was a little more chicken and a little less rice.
Beef Short Rib Tacos
Though it did have a great flavour I did find the meat a tad chewy. I think it would have worked better with bulgogi.
Tucked away in a small little spot in Surry Hills, Ko and Co Soju Bar is fun and quirky. Inside, a giant mural covers the wall – a cross of a tiger/bear by Sydney-based artist Sprinkles. This funky place features a bar serving Soju, a distilled South Korean beverage traditionally made from rice, wheat or barley. Bar stools are the only seating option, which I found to be a bit uncomfortable for an extended time period. However, Ko and Co Soju Bar is a fun little bar with a great vibe.
