On The Dak | Korean Fried Chicken in Covent Garden

Korean fried chicken.

Truly, this is Seoul food.

And quite possibly the best place in London to get it – On The Bab – have decided to open a restaurant dedicated to the stuff. It’s in Covent Garden, just off the Seven Dials, and it’s appropriately called On The Dak.

The place itself is small but functional, with white-painted brick walls, distressed wooden fittings, and a very fast-casual vibe; the menu is designed to be to-go as much as to-stay. And that menu focuses it’s attention squarely on chicken in all its glorious (but mostly fried) forms:

THE CHICKEN

KFC: Korean Fried Chicken

You can get the original crispy fried bird coated in flavours like sweet soy, soft garlic, and Seoul-style spicy, or even thrown into a light, fluffy, Bao-style ‘Chibun’ (that’s ‘chicken bun’). If you’re after something a little bulkier, then you can always have your chicken as a BBQ ‘Chibab’ (that’s ‘chicken kebab’) with rice, or in the form of some classic Korean pulled chicken noodle soup.

THE NOT-CHICKEN

They’ve got here types of kimchi (tomato, coriander, original) to go with all of the fried fowl, as well as some crunchy soy-pickled garlic, and a cabbage salad.

It’s worth crossing the road for.

NOTE: On The Dak is open now. You can find out more, and check out their whole, chicken-ey menu at their website right HERE.
