Sightseeing with BLBM - #4 - The Famous Korean Restaurant In South Auckland

in food •  last year 


A Korean Restaurant tucked in the country side of Auckland hidden behind rows of Apple trees slowly going down the drive way a long building (the restaurant), with vege patches growing along the side with plenty of parking at the back to accommodate the restaurant guests that are mostly Koreans that mostly come weekly to catch up with friends and family over a home style buffet meal.


The rows of apple trees that great you when you first arrive, which gives the name of the restaurant Korean Apple Orchard Restaurant.

Many Koreans (maybe just the one's we've spoken too) in Auckland refer this restaurant as the famous Korean Restaurant in Auckland.


When you drive up this is on the other side of the driveway, the back of the restaurant.


Once you've parked the car you will come thru the other side of the hedge past the house where the owners live and thru to this hedge where you will be able to see the restaurant.


Thru the big beautiful front doors awaits a Korean buffet, but before we walk thru the doors lets explore the outdoors a little more to work up your appetite.

On the left hand side is a coffee cart where you can help your self to a cup of coffee while your waiting for your session or after your meal, where your free to walk the grounds.

On the right hand side is where the meat gets cook on the coals, A lovely man spends his time tending to the meat for the hungry crowds.

If you swing around there will be this cute little area to take a seat, relax while you wait or drink your coffee.


If you head right, going past the bbq area you'll see beautiful open space where you can take a stroll around or send the kids to run about to work up their appetite or to work off some of their meal.
They also hold weddings out here is this open space.
