SquareMeal Review of Wellbeing Kitchen

Best Female Chefs Series


In the Year of the Woman, SquareMeal is running a series of interviews with top female chefs. Read here to discover the sense of achievement Monica Galetti feels about owning her first restaurant, what it’s like working with her husband, and the different ways in which Masterchef has changed her life.

It’s not much to look at, but this tiny Korean caff is a useful West End pit stop for those in the know, winning fans for its high quality and low prices. As the dining room contains only five plastic-topped tables, most of Wellbeing Kitchen’s custom is in takeaways, but plenty of folk come to chow down inside, along with Korean tourists and local office workers in need of kimchi-laced comfort food. Avoid the obvious – a basic rendition of beef bulgogi did not impress – the forte is in huge bowls of soup, such as the hot and spicy soondooboo (a bright-red soup heavy on the kimchi). Other hits include rice topped with thick slices of raw fish and slivers of umami-rich dried seaweed (£6.90), and an excellent rendition of Japanese chicken katsu (£5.50). Portions are generous, service is fast, and the bargain prices take some beating.
