Arirang Korean Barbecue opened in Perth, WA in 1999. Created by the Yu family who emigrated to Perth in search of a better life with the simple idea and passion to bring their love of Korean food and culture to Australia. This was the beginning of WA’s first Korean Barbecue Restaurant! 18 years later Arirang Korean Barbecue continues to serve a mix of traditional Korean dishes and modern fusion. Arirang’s focus is in serving authentic Korean dishes such as Bibimbap, Bulgogi, Kimchi as well as modern street food such as Korean Fried Chicken, Cupbap and Ramen using locally sourced and fresh produce. Arirang Korean Barbecue Restaurant is located on Barrack Street in the Perth, with food court and cafe outlets around WA. Our passion for Korean food is as strong as ever and we will continue to deliver the best in Korean food in WA.
Food Court Franchise
Arirang Australia currently operates 4 food court franchise businesses located at Allendale Square, Carousel, Morley Galleria, and Edith Cowan University Campus in Joondalup. The food court business is centred around the signature Korean dish of Bibimbap and provides shoppers with a tasty, healthy and interesting alternative to the standard food court fare.
Arirang prepares and provides Korean meals, Korean BBQ meats like Bulgogi, Korean Soups and now Kimchi to local cafes and Asian markets. In 2018 we will be launching a Kimchi brand and selling via good Asian and Korean supermarkets across Australia
Arirang Cha Ung Yu Prizes in Korean Studies
As part of Arirang Australia’s commitment not only to Korean food but the advancement of Korean culture in Australia and our links to the Western Australian Community, every year two UWA Korean students with excellent grades are awarded two separate prizes by Arirang founder, Mr Cha Ung Yu. These prizes are awarded based on academic merit and reward students enrolled in Korean Studies at UWA.
As part of the Korean New Year celebration, Arirang Korean Barbecue holds a special event serving up around 200 bowls of traditional rice cake soup for free to the Perth community.
As part of the event we also ask guests for a small gold coin donation to support a local charity, last year Arirang donated proceeds to Manna Perth, a homeless meal charity which enabled them to purchase over 50 meals for homeless people in Perth.
