Perkily tonsured Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw is a busy man these days. Not content with getting up at stupid o’clock every morning to drag the nation’s youngsters out of their beds, he’s also undertaking this new project. It’s filming close to transmission so no preview material was available. But what we’re dealing with is, essentially, a new panel show.
Every week, Grimshaw will be joined by Kiss FM DJs and team captains Rickie and Melvin, and regular guest Rochelle Humes from The Saturdays. They’ll be exploring pet hates and irrational personal obsessions – in other words, the smallest issues of the day. We suspect this could go either way. Grimshaw’s a likeable chap, but there are so many panel shows these days that a new one is going to struggle to really distinguish itself.
Yori – meaning ‘cooked food’ in Korean – is located slap bang in the middle of theatreland, right next to the Harold Pinter Theatre and down the road from Piccadilly Circus station. These days there are a lot of Korean food outlets in central London, however, Yori offers up a menu of approachable dishes with lots to choose from. To start with try a seafood kimchee jeon (basically a seafood pancake) and follow up with bulgogi, a thinly sliced barbequed meat. If you fancy going a bit traditional, or more adventurous, you can order a jeongol, a giant hot pot cooked at your table, for which you can choose ingredients to add to your own steaming broth. There’s also the option of tableside grilling for Korean barbeque.
