    Over the Hype :: Jubo – Korean Fast Food

    If you haven’t tried it, you need to get yourself some Korean D…rumsticks. I don’t know much about korean fried chicken but I do know about chicken from the cottage, and oh boy does the latter seem so pale and pidgeon-like in comparison to the juicy pieces rolled in golden armoury of batter challenging everything I thought I knew about fried chicken. I confess a Shoreditch check-in wasn’t bad for twitter RTs either… Forever gone are the days of being slumped over the counter at e&c chicken cottage ordering something as miserable as my face #youarewhatyoueat #buti’mnotachicken #lookatmenow...

    Dinnerathon. :: Jubo: London

    Just when you think London may be slowly falling out of love with American fast food, when sensible, grown-up, dare I whisper it, healthy, restaurants are opening to fanfare, you are again faced with chicken strips. Okay, so Jubo isn't quite in the same mould. Its Manhatten via Seoul. Nevertheless, the American influence weighs heavy. Nestled into the corner of the ground floor in the Bedroom Bar, Jubo serves food to eat while drinking. There are wings, chicken strips, and steamed buns of various sorts. Kimchi slaw. A beef-stuffed sub. Perfect food after a few cocktails. The "Yangnyeom Tongdak" (Korean-fried) chicken came winged or stripped, with soy or hot and sweet. We went for the strips, three of each. I am reliably informed by my trusty companion Wikipedia that the difference between American and Korean fried chicken is that the Koreans are not happy with frying their chicken once. No, theirs is double-fried for extra crunch (cue Heston's next show, triple-cooked chicken). And, sure enough, the chicken was super crunchy, but still juicy and tender inside. The hot and sweet ones with sesame seeds slipped down a treat.We also got the Bulgogi (Korean-marinated) beef sub - a tasty roll, but nothing exciting.  Kimchi slaw was disappointing - the fermented hit lost in a sea of mayonnaise.Hirata buns, one filled with slow-cooked pork and sriracha, the other with portobello mushroom, were rich, the mushroom heavy with umami. A couple of years back, they would have been exciting. Now they were just a little disappointing, at least when compared with those on offer at places like Yum Bun round the corner. Still, not a bad effort, and certainly fine to nibble on while drinking with friends.The mushroom hirata...And that's where I end up with Jubo. If you are going expecting a revelation, you will be disappointed. If you are meeting a few drinks and want some tasty bar snacks to sit alongside your cocktails, Jubo will do just fine...

    The Food I Eat :: Jubo: Korean Canteen in Shoreditch

    Loyal Lucky Peach subscriber? Popped over to Copenhagen’s MAD Symposium last weekend? Counting down the days to the opening of the UK’s first Williams-Sonoma? Well, the chance is that you’re the sort of hard-core foodie who’s more likely to idolise David Chang than David Beckham. The American chef is the godfather of Korean fusion. He was brought up in Virginia on a diet of “Korean food and then Waffle House-like Southern things on weekends”. After spending his adolescence on the golf circuit often pitched against a young Tiger Woods, Chang moved into cooking, opening his first restaurant in NY’s East Village: Momofoku Noodle Bar. The menu brought together Korean classics, with a playful American twist. He describes his signature steamed pork buns as being “like steamed hamburgers” – perhaps explaining how he shifts upwards of 3,000 per week in burger-hungry NYC!...

  4. Just in case you didn’t know, pigs love fried chicken. Oh! You did know. Anyway, we were very excited to be invited along to the launch of Jubo at The Bedroom Bar in Shoreditch. Fried chicken and Korean food combined. That was something we just had to try, so we hot-trottered it down there. The Bedroom Bar is a funky place to grab a drink and Jubo is there to take care of any alcohol induced hunger pangs. Located on the left-hand side of the bar as you enter, Jubo is inspired by the type of Korean fried chicken canteen that’s found in K-towns (Korean towns to you and I). They also serve Korean inspired cocktails as well as the local tipple, Soju and the obligatory Hite beer...
