If you love Korean cuisine and BBQ flavours, but are looking for vegan and halal options, then we have found the perfect restaurant for you: Korean BBQ Vegan Restaurant. Located right by the Barbican, it's got a great spot inbetween East and Central London, with loads of transport links and surrounding activities, as well as bars and pubs to go for a drink afterwards.
The concept hinges carefully on delivering incredibly authentic Korean food, using local suppliers and working with halal butchers to provide high quality meats. There's also plenty of dishes that the team are particularly proud of, such as the homemade kimchi, which comes vegan, too. And, if you're looking for a house signature, the Korean pot soups are a favourite of the team.
The menu is lengthy and is separated into several sections. Starters come in the form of pan-fried spring onion and seafood pancake, as well as Korean fried chicken and prawn and vegetable dumplings. For mains, there's plenty of choice including chicken teriyaki with stir fried vegetables, kimchi bokkumbap and more Korean fried chicken, this time coated with spicy sweet chilli and melted cheese.
You'll also find rice and noodle classics like yaki udon with a selection of topping options and bulgogi bibimbap which brings together marinated beef with rice, mixed vegetables and is topped with a a raw egg. As previously mentioned, though, this is a great spot for vegans and there's a whole vegan-friendly main menu with dishes like vegan yaki soba, vegan cutsu curry and vegan crispy tofu teriyaki.
There's also an impressive BBQ menu and the website actually states that mini grills can be provided at the table for an immersive experience. Here, you can expect a whole selection of beefs to BBQ from rib eye and fillet, as well as salmon, octupus and squid, all coming with a big salad basket and sauces.
