Cho Cho San in Potts Point is easily one of our favourite restaurants in Sydney. So when Zomato invited us for their very first #ZomatoMeetUp to try out Cho Cho San’s new Bo Ssam menu, we (hungrily) jumped at the opportunity.
Set in the trendy Potts Point area, owners Jonathan Barthelmess and Sam Christie along with head chef Nic Wong (ex Bodega, Billy Kwong and Ester) have created a modern Japanese izakaya. The pair also own Apollo across the road.
For those of you who don’t know, Bo Ssam is a traditional Korean cuisine usually centring around meat, which is served with side dishes including garlic, onion, various sauces and pickles or kimchi. The meat and sides are then wrapped together in vegetable leaves like fresh lettuce or cabbage, hence the literal meaning of Bossam: “wrapped” or “packaged.”
Cho Cho San’s version certainly has a more contemporary twist providing generous servings of juicy and tender beef short rib and succulent steamed prawns, to be wrapped not only in crispy lettuce leaves but also inside fluffy steamed baos. These were seriously excellent, absorbing all the flavours from the large selections of condiments and pickles and encasing the juicy proteins.
To finish up the meal is a savoury sweet miso corn soup AND OFCOURSE Cho Cho Sans famous green matcha soft serve, the creamy yet pleasantly bitter flavour is the perfect refresher after a belly full of delicious food
The Bo Ssam menu is perfect for groups and priced exceptionally well at $50 per person. For that much quality food at such a small price it’s no wonder people are going crazy for it
