Kimchi Bokkeumbap

Kimchi Bokkeumbap


Jubo.  Korean Fried Chicken, you may or may not have heard of it.  In a nutshell, the Koreans love spicy fried chicken, and it is one of the latest semi-fast food trends to expand around the globe.  London is under-served with Korean restaurants and Jubo is the best one we’ve been to.  It is a tiny Korean restaurant located inside the lobby to the Bedroom Bar on Rivington Street.  They don’t take bookings unless you’re a party of 6 or more so again you turn up and take your chances, but this is fairly out of your way so you should get a table.  The Korean Fried Chicken is great but they also do steamed buns (a la Momofuku), BBQ meat and an absolutely superb Bokkeumbap rice bowl.  Cocktails come courtesy of the Bedroom Bar and make for a fun evening.

Tip: Make sure Korean is your new cuisine to try in 2015 if you’ve not already done so.
