SquareMeal Review of On The Bab Express

Another eatery to feed London’s current obsession with Korean food from the very well respected owners of Koba and Nizuni. This Marylebone branch is a takeaway – ideal for a quick spice fix at lunchtime. The name means ‘on the rice’, and diners are offered classic bimabab – beef bolgogi or spicy pork or chicken served with rice. More popular, though, is their version of Korean fried chicken, served sweet and sticky or spicy, both with a peanut crunch on the top. But as the weather turns cooler, we’ll have our eye on the steaming rice noodle broth topped with prawn dumpling – just the thing to get you through the winter.

Joanna G. platinum reviewer 25 January 2016

Korean style, fried, battered chicken pieces coated in a wonderfully sticky, sweet, chilli sauce with crushed peanuts on top and a side of slaw/salad was absolutely delightful, followed by Bulgogi beef buns, crammed full of delicious strips of marinated beef, slaw and more sauce, and a side of chicken dumplings with vinegary dipping sauce - this is not a restaurant for those who like to keep their hands (and chin) clean, a lot of tissues and hand wipes were used - at around £17 for two of us (non-licensed), this was a relatively cheap meal, and we will be back soon.
