Finally, finallyyyyyyyy Korean food I can get onboard with. Spotted this joint the first week I got to London, but never had the time to try it out. So happy we made the decision to pop by because I’ll probably become one of their regulars.

Since they’re known for their Korean street food, we had to go for their Korean Fried Chicken.

Chicken enclosed in thick, crispy batter drizzled in seasoned spring onion sweet and sour sauce – delightfully crunchy, highly recommended.

Their “On the Buns”.

Thin slices of spicy pork, mixed veggies and sweet spicy mayo sandwiched between a white bun – juicy, flavorful and messy, I highly recommend you order this with a friend (get down and dirty and use your hands!).

Their Quail Egg & Bacon Egg Muffin.

Sweet, crispy golden-brown egg muffin with a yoke-y, bacon center. Probably my favorite order of the meal (though it’s hard to choose because the others were on point too). Portions for this is small so I would recommend ordering one per person. 

Overall, highlights of this place include the young and hip interior design, the efficient staff and of course, the tasty street food. Prices are reasonable, orders come fast and restaurant is conveniently located across Covent Garden. My favorite Korean restaurant so far in central London, ‘nough said.
