So Korean food is the new Vietnamese, which was the new Japanese, after Thai, which replaced Chinese. If you haven’t caught up yet, Bibigo is a good place to start. The new Angel outfit, Bibigo’s second London location, is spacious yet cosy enough with warm wood, copper, and a mix of traditional and contemporary interiors. The fusion is also evident on the cocktail list with some interesting soju-infused inspirations like the Yellow Sea (with lemongrass, vanilla infused maple syrup and yuja tea). The food is more traditional and we’re grateful for that. We (I) thoroughly enjoyed the red chicken; imagine the best popcorn chicken ever with a sweet, spicy glaze and the japchae – stir-fried glass noodles flavoured with sesame and laced with beef and/or veg. For mains we couldn’t skip the Bibimbap rice bowl and delicate monkish in a punchy sauce. The deserts were odd but well worth a go – we had the Bibigo Goldfish – a fish shaped Korean waffle accompanied by red bean paste, and Hoddeok, a delicious pancake with a peculiar texture. The cuisine definitely deserves its time in the spotlight and you should get in quick before we are all onto Filipino food.
