In a rush to get to lecture today so my friend and I dropped by healthy Korean "fast-food" place, Kimchee, for a quick bite. They've got three locations - one sit down restaurant in High Holborn and two "to-go" pickup places on Strand and New Oxford Street. We just so happened to pass the Oxford Street branch, so we decided to give it a go. 

We had their Chicken Bibibamp.

We also had their Bulgogi Beef.

Both boxes come with your choice of plain or red bean rice. 

The most authentic Korean food around? Probably not. Easy meal to pick up? Pretty much. Satisfy my Asian food craving? Absolutely. 

Do opt for the red bean rice. I love the consistent sticky texture and traces of bean here and there (or I'm just bias because I love red bean anything). 

Tip for the college students: apparently their New Oxford branch sells their to-go food for 50% off an hour before closing (so that's 8:00-9:00PM). Cheap food = good food.
