Korean fast food concept, Bibigo Bar and Dining, will open its second London outpost in Islington on the site of Alan Yau’s former Naamyaa Café. The restaurateur’s informal Thai-style café – intended as the prototype of a chain – unexpectedly closed in January, less than two years after it opened.
In January the St John Street site will be relaunched as Bibigo, which also has a restaurant in Soho’s Great Malborough Street. On the menu: chilli barbecued pork and squid and kimchi rice with chicken and fried egg. The lounge-bar area will feature an innovative drinks menu with cocktails made with soju (Korea’s most popular spirit).
