Maru, Elizabeth St, Brisbane CBD

Maru, a Korean Restaurant on Elizabeth Street in the Brisbane CBD... One of the new ones in the city but at the same time, there seems to be more new Korean restaurants opening up in the CBD..

This post is going to focus on their Lunch special, though I have been here a few times for dinner..
Self-Serve Buffet Lunch
Lunch special offer for them is $9.90 and it's basically somewhat a buffet.. It is similar to Bi-Bim-Bap, but here, you choose what you want from the different varieties of vegetables and side dishes they have on offer..
As well as Soybean Paste soup and side dishes where you can get by yourself, self-serve..
Tips are shown in how to be able to eat, and what you are suppose to do ...
Sauces you can use for your self-served food .. All of these photos below are the different side dishes ..
Fishcake and vegetable
Cold Glass Noodle and Thinly sliced vegetables
another side dish which I forgot the name of

Cold Mushrooms with sliced cucumber salad

Bean Sprouts
Soybean Paste Soup
Lunch Bi-Bim-Bap self-served
Another example where here you can see the vegetables and the minced beef and the sauce..
Basically, you eat what you get and put into your plate... There was a penalty if any food was to go to waste or if there was an excess of leftovers left on the table..

As well as getting the lunch self-serve bi-bim-bap special, Jajjang Myeon was also ordered.. Jajjang Myeon originally originated from China but was then brought around the world and now many asian countries have their own type of Jajjang Myeon.. 
They are basically noodles in thick Black Bean sauce mixed with meat and vegetable .. It was good but I found it abit runny than how I thought it would be..
