We were already babbling on about On The Bab, and now we’re all hands on dak for their next offering: On The Dak.
On The Dak (‘dak’ means chicken in Korean) has just opened in Covent Garden and is doing the same for chicken that sister restaurant On The Bab did for bab (less clear this one, but basically translates as ‘served with rice’).
On the corner of Monmouth and Neal Streets and facing Shaftesbury Avenue, the new eatery is serving four flavours of Korean fried chicken, Chitang, a type of Korean chicken soup noodles, Chibun, spicy Korean bbq chicken with cabbage and Chibab, chicken and salad with rice. There’s also a meat-free Chibab on hand, served with mushrooms and house soy.
Sides include various kimchis as well as salads, rice and chicken dumplings.
The restaurant is the seventh London venture for entrepreneur and serial restauraunt opener Linda Lee, with four On The Babs, Mee Market in Soho and Koba, her long-time Fitzrovia-based Korean barbeque restaurant.
For an authentic Korean experience head to On The Dak, it’s about as genuinely Korean as Ban Ki Moon singing Gangnam Style.
