Darac Grill & Bar

A cosy Korean slash Japanese style restaurant with quite an extensive menu, well loved by surrounding uni students and workers alike. We didn’t have to make a booking for a Wednesday night, though the restaurant was quite full when we arrived.
The first dish we tried was the Grilled Sashimi Set 2 (seared fillets of salmon and soured mackerel sashimi prepared on the table $21.0), they put the dish down on the table and lightly seared the pieces with a handheld blowtorch which was pretty awesome. The fish was fresh and the seared sides brought through a more solid flavour. The soured mackerel was surprisingly tasty, I almost preferred it more than the salmon.
Whenever I go to a Korean restaurant, I always try to order a Spicy Soft Tofu Stew (soft tofu stewed with egg and various seafood for two $17.0) or similar, and it rarely disappoints. I love silken tofu and mixed into a spicy broth with seafood, you can’t really go wrong.
Lastly the Takoyaki Salad (octopus balls with soy sauce and mayonnaise $8.0) was nice, the balls were served piping hot, which I think is important with Takoyaki, otherwise it just gets mushy and weird. The salad was unnecessary but fluffed the dish up to a bigger size.
TL;DR Would return for an easy relatively cheap eat.
