Why locals recommend it
My go-to for the ultimate comfort food: bibimbap. Nothing beats ricey carbs, a fried egg, and all those finely sliced vegetables with spicy-sweet gochujang sauce. A side of kimchi is nonnegotiable. If you’re here for a feast with friends, also get the Korean fried chicken, and the cocktail made with soju, a Korean spirit. Good for vegetarians, too. There’s also a Covent Garden branch, but I like the Old Street one for its buzzy vibe and tiny, homely feel.

Korean small plates inspired by street food eats plus anju cocktails served in hip cafe-style digs.

Small plates Korean food. Definitely try the KFC. Can get pretty crowded, so try to avoid peak hours.

I discovered Korean street food there and highly recommend 'on the buns, breaded prawn patty'. And for meat eaters the Yangyum fried chicken, mixing both flavours, soy ginger & sweet spicy!

Meal Delivery
“Also in the Vietnamese Kitchen family, Cây Tre specialises in authentic Vietnamese cuisine but concentrates more on the traditional dining experience than its street food-focused sibling (and opposite neighbour) Kêu. The menu features items meant for feasting in groups as much as savouring alone. Try the beef pho, which has an 18-hour prep time; it’s hard to go wrong with a starter of salt-and-pepper squid, too.”
