Marrying two of London’s hottest trends (barbecue joints and Korean food), East Asian BBQ spot Bó Drake is coming to Soho on 12 February. It has become one of London’s most anticipated new openings and we’ve certainly had to wait a while to see inside it – initially the restaurant was scheduled to open in September last year.
The new dining spot and Anju (Korean snacks) bar, from ex-Roka chef Jan Lee, will open in Greek Street on the site of SIX Soho, a rather short-lived Italian. Alongside barbecued and smoked meats, Bó Drake’s menu will focus on more traditional sweet and pickled influences from South-East Asia (including the all-important kimchi). The 50-cover restaurant also offers a small al fresco dining space.
Signature dishes include smoked ‘Bobo’ chicken, with sriracha, lime and herbs; ‘Dan Dan’ smoked pork belly, with chanterelles, spring onions, peanut and noodles and pork and eel dumpling with Sichuan peppercorns and chilli oil. As well as barbecue dishes the menu offers seafood and vegetarian options.
