A regular favourite for cheap, rib-sticking renditions of (you guessed it) bibimbap, this likeable joint is all bright colours, happy snaps and Ikea-style furniture. Ten varieties of the hot stone-bowl rice classic are on offer (including five for veggies) – all you need to do is stir in the fiery gochujang sauce and soya bean paste.
If you’ve got that kimchi craving, London has many options. There are great places to eat Korean food all over town, from unassuming takeaways to sleek temples of Asian cuisine. At London’s best Korean restaurants it’s mainly all about the three Bs: bulgogi, bibimbap and barbecue, and the fun part is there’s often a DIY element to Korean dining, with cooking meat at your table a common practice. Roll up your sleeves and get stuck in.
