So this is the last Korean restaurant along St Giles High Street but obviously not the last Korean restaurant I'll be going to!
It was not a surprise to see ASSA Yorimichi go as more Koreans frequent the area than the Japanese and I believe Korean food has become more of an in thing recently (but I still love my Chinese and Japanese foods!!!).

Side dishes came out first. Miss Pinky was munching away at these...
Miss Pinky saw this Jjampong Ramen dish in the window of the shop. And this looks nothing like what we saw in the window! Damn photo shoots. Food never looks the same as it does in the window! She ordered this without prawns due to her allergies. Well, Miss Pinky loved this. It was spicy. The squid was nice and tender and the soup was good too. There are a lot of veggies in this one too.
Another dish that was shown in the window were these marinated beef ribs. Wow. These tasted really good! A little salty. Marinate was great! And the beef was nice and tender. Chewable and not too hard to the bone. I would have definitely snucked a few more pieces from this hot plate if Miss Pinky wasn't looking. Heheh. :D

Both of us ordered a beef bibimbap each. Not sure why Miss Pinky ordered more than she could actually eat... she just wanted to take this away. This looks like the type of bibimbap you would have at home rather than in a restaurant. It looks similar to Seoul Bakery but there's more in here! It comes with a fried egg... and all I can say it was good. I think Miss Pinky was a tiny bit disappointed as it wasn't in a hot pot.
My geeky rating: 4.5/5
- Free Wi-Fi available (just look for the code on the wall)
- Loved the fried chicken (but it needs salt or flavouring)
- Polite service (our waitress was very good at memorising our order without writing it down!!)
- A bit expensive
- Service charge (as usual)
