You can’t miss it…. there’s a sign

Second Branch of OnTheBab Shoreditch, (review can be found here), thus no introduction needed!

Opened on the 10th April offering a one day 50% soft launch (dishes here are shown full price), I took the opportunity to try some new things from the menu. Again the focus is on Korean Anju dishes, that is, food that is served well with alcohol, similar to a Japanese Izakaya, but the Korean version.

The meal:

There are a few things new on the menu, such as new flavours to the Yangyum Chicken, Sweet Spicy with Garlic Topping, and Garlic and Mayo.

Muffins are also new to the menu, mirroring the current street food trend from Seoul, the Korean Muffin Case Baked Egg.

Beer taps for the beer lovers

When you eat with Andy you know you can drink with Andy

The muffins were indeed something new and it’s not something that suits everyone, Daisy enjoyed the Kimchi and Cheese flavour whereas Allan didn’t. If you go for a muffin, best go for the Kimchi and Cheese, the Quail Egg and Bacon is too European!

On the Buns (2 pcs) £7.00 (Bulgogi Beef)

I’ve had a lot of baos this week, (Hirata Buns), the baos aren’t as soft as its Taiwanese competitors (Bao London) but it is still a great eat, its portions are larger, and you get your fair share of kimchi in your filling.

A lot of veg in our veggie On The Bibimbap £7.50

On the Buns – Spicy Chicken £7.00

It’s chicken! Yangyum Chicken (medium) Garlic Mayo, and Sweet and Sour for £11.50
On The Bab (21 of 26)
On The Roll/ Korean Style Burrito £7.50

The Yangyum Chicken were my favourites, more the Sweet Spicy than the Garlic Mayo  but it was something different! Great with beer! The Korean Style Burrito is essentially a kimbap, a lot of condiments in them and a very large vegetable to meat ratio…

We got too full… but the ‘burrito’ consisted of various vegetables, choice of bulgogi beef, spicy pork, spicy chicken, fried chicken or mixed veg.

Bits and bobs:

  • Like the Shoreditch branch, they will not be doing bookings
  • A bar is incorporated into this branch, giving it a more pub-like feel
  • Offer takeaways
