Historical version 6 of On The Bab, EC1V 9LA (view current version)

Korean restaurant on Old Street, specialising in street food.

bob visited in January 2020 for an early lunch. Several people were already in and it got busier in the 30 minutes I was there. Normally when I walk past at lunchtime it's very full of diners and people getting takeaway.

I had the spicy pork bibimbap (£11.80) photo, a small portion of Korean fried chicken with sweet and spicy sauce (£6.40) photo, and a honey ginger tea (£3.50). The bibimbap was tasty and used fresh ingredients. It was served in a metal bowl rather than a hot stone bowl so you didnt get any crisp rice or indeed the chance to cook the meat yourself. The chicken was well cooked, but the sauce could have been spicier. The tea was very good.

Accessibility: A step to get in. The tables are very close together.
