Warwick Sushi team behind new restaurant

THE team behind the much loved Warwick Sushi are spreading their wings with a brand new venture set to open soon.

Young Jin Park and Min Hwa Jeon are busy at work turning 59 Palmerin St, (formerly Inca Gold) between Ray White and Just Because, into a traditional wooden-interiored Korean Japanese restaurant.

The new business, Soban House, is set to open by the end of June and owner Min Hwa Jeon is excited about the challenge ahead.

“We have had Warwick Sushi for three years now and felt it was time to branch out,” she said.

“We originally came to Australia from Korea five years ago for a working holiday, spending time in Bowen and Stanthorpe.

“We returned to Korea to get married and decided to return to this part of the world.

“We love it here, it will be a great place to raise our little 16 month old boy.

“A friend asked me if I would move away and I said ‘why would I?’, I really want to become a local and stay here for a long time.”

The restaurant will serve tradtional Korean meals on a Soban tray.

Customers will be offered a choice of Wagyu beef, chicken, pork and salmon.

Each meal will come with a main and four or five side dishes including rice and everything will cost between $10 and $30.

Min Hwa said the cooking will be done by her husband, Young Jin and they’ll employ local staff to help run the restaurant.

“We will open from 11am-3pm and 5pm-8pm Tuesday to Sunday,” she said.

“We think this will offer an exciting Korean Japanese dining option for the lovely people of Warwick.

“We have built the interior in the traditional style.

“We’ll also be the only place to serve Sake (rice wine), you must come and try it.”
