On The Bab

Craving fried chicken? This Korean eatery will hit the spot.

You'll find Korean food spot On The Bab on Old Street. They serve a mixture of tasty morsels from their modest kitchen which explains the queue outside the door. Bab, the Korean word for rice, is not the only option; there's a range of tasty meat filled steamed bao buns and sticky, spicy fried chicken on the menu.

This venue is only small with about eight small tables in total and a few seats at the bar. Sticking with Shoreditch tradition, On The Bab boasts the distressed look, with exposed brickwork and the menu is listed on a vintage peg board.  

This spot is definitely all about the food: arm yourself with some napkins and try the sweet and spicy Yangyum Korean fried chicken. Sticky, crispy and more-ish, the chicken comes topped with peanuts and served with shredded Korean cabbage. A trip to OTB isn't complete without sampling a couple of their bao buns. We love the soft shell crab and guac bun drizzled in garlic and chilli soy sauce. 

The Kun Mandu chicken dumplings and Gimari seaweed salad are also worth trying. This place is all about sharing, so get a group together and enjoy!
