A Korean place next to Cay Tre.

Excellent Korean style fried chicken, smothered in sauce. Despite the near fluorescence glow, the sauce was surprisiing deep with the pungency of garlic, a good chilli kick, very lightly sweet, and starchy in consistency but not gloppy.

The fried kimchi and cheese "arancini" were ok, but nothing special, and perhaps a little pricey at £3-something for two arancini the size of ping pong balls.

Good flavours in the kimchi fried rice, where I occasionally spotted a bit a of the advertised pork belly. Topped with a good fried egg with a runny yolk and shredded cabbage with a cream-based dressing. Serving was a bit small at £7-ish.

The food was very good on the whole, with some serious depth to the flavours. Certainly worth trying again.
