On The Bab Express

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.
