Square Meal Review of On The Bab ?

The founder of Fitzrovia’s Koba and Nizuni has launched a new eatery in the City that will feed London’s appetite for Korean food with an authentic ‘K-Town’ experience. The focus is on ‘anju’ (hip Korean party food) in the shape of sweet, spicy yangyum chicken, pa jeon (spring onion pancakes with seafood) and new creations including an Asian take on arancini – panko-coated kimchi balls served with On The Bab’s secret sauce. City folk can also expect street-food classics such as japche (glass noodles with vegetables) and comforting winter warmers like ‘soon dunu chigae’ (a renowned seafood stew served with tofu and a ‘hidden’ poached egg). Drinks are in the same mould, from cocktails based on soju (rice liquor) to so mac (a sophisticated Korean riff on Jägerbomb).

First to arrive were the kimchi jeon – a kimchi pancake, and the bibimbap with bulgogi beef. The pancakes - delicious and cripsy, working well with either the surprisingly light chilli oil, or the more pungent chilli sauce...

    Nomface :: On The Bab, London

    Continuing the Korean trend around Shoreditch, On The Bab brings Korean inspired street food to the area. Situated on Old Street it is only a couple of minutes from Jubo on Rivington Street. I visited last week on the first night of its soft launch where 50% was offered off the food bill. Occupying a small space tables are packed tightly together with a small wall facing bar table to make the best use of the space. An open kitchen provides diners full a view of the theatrics of the dishes being prepared...
