Korean near British Museum [London]

Jenny Sheridan | Feb 9, 201108:24 AM

I was looking for Bi Won in Coptic Street but it seems to have disappeared. Instead I found Bibimbam Cafe in Museum Street. I had Korean beef, which was a mound of rice, each grain both sticky and separate, accompanied by another mound of beef. This was in scrappy-looking but tender pieces, flavoured with a spice (not hot) I couldn't identify at all. and sprinkled with sesame seeds There was a small amount of juice from the meat and some slices of carrot and onion. Also a bowl of broth, again unidentifiable and perfumed, with tofu and spring onions floating in it.

It cost £6, was filling and had fascinating flavours. I enjoyed it very much. I also had a cup of plum tea, which was sweet and really tasted of the fruit.
