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...

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... More from Dinnerathon. »

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... More from London Piggy »
