Little Oscar is a new Korean-American fusion restaurant, inspired by the Korean Precinct on West 32nd St, New York. The restaurant opened around a month a go at Brunswick East. Little Oscar is a restaurant and bar, they have various events throughout the week such as "Play Your Own Vinyl Monday" where you can bring your own vinyl and play it on their DJ booth and they also have live musics or DJ's on some days.

When I arrived at Little Oscar, Lorance one of the owner greeted me and show us to our table. The restaurant has several outdoor seatings and several high chair, bar stools and regular seatings inside. It was a well decorated space with wooden furnitures, dim romantic lighting, large ropes as a separator and a little bit of greens strategically placed. I honestly love it and I do think it's charming and cozy. Their menu has a great variety of American Korean fusion and they do have a large range of cocktails.

KFC - Korean Fried Chicken ($13). My husband loves the KFC, he said it was flavourful with a nice crunchiness and I agreed with him.

Little Oscar battered onion rings with Little Oscar's chilli sauce ($7). Onion rings is one of my favourite side dishes and it was crunchy and have a nice flavour.

Sweet potato chips with Little Oscar sauce ($7). Sweet potato chips is definitely one of the trending sides right now and they certainly make a good version of it.

Korean fried calamari with Little Oscar sweet chilli ($8). This is my favourite Little Oscar sides, it was tasty and the calamari was fried properly.

Little Oscar Burger - Wagyu beef patty, cheese, lettuce, onion jam, Little Oscar pickles, tomato, Little Oscar sauce ($13).  They served the burger as two smaller ones cause they want people to be able to share them and honestly I like that concept. The bun was soft with juicy tender patty and tasty onion jam.

Gangnam Style - Korean Fried Chicken with an Asian slaw, kimchi and roasted sesame seeds ($16.5). The chicken was crunchy with a little bit of sourness and spiciness from kimchi. Between the two burger, I prefer the meat just because I always think the real burger is with beef.

Lorance and his brother has been a great host, we had a great time at Little Oscar. They are clearly very passionate about the food industry and willing to do what it takes to keep up with the trend and provide the best customer service. Lorance aim to provide a place where people able to have fun, eat good foods, drink a little booze, listen to musics while having fun with their friends. It's a concept that I'm willing to indulge.
