From the team behind Shibuya and Hongdae Pocha, Chungdam opened this week, specialising in Korean BBQ

Based in Soho and named after the Cheongdam-dong district in Seoul, Chungdam is now open and serving up Korean BBQ to be cooked at your table. Blending the modern with the traditional, the extensive menu is stacked with Korean favourites, all made with high-quality ingredients.

The star of the show, of course, is the BBQ selection, which includes the likes of Chateaubriand filet mignon, brisket, beef tongue, marinated short ribs, Wagyu A3-5, pork belly and salted chicken thigh (among other options) to be cooked on Chungdam’s state-of-the-art BBQs. You can choose to eat your meats on their own, dipped in sauce or wrapped in lettuce with spring onions, garlic and chilli. But aside from that, there’s a range of rice & noodle dishes, starters and sides as well as Pyeonbaek steam boxes made from Hinoki wood which are used to steam seafood, veggies and prime cuts of beef.

Drinks-wise, there’s a range of rice wine and soju-based cocktails alongside a selection of world wines, spirits and beers. Interiors are warm and minimalist and the restaurant is situated on the corner of Greek Street and Romilly Street, so you’ll get to do some excellent people-watching through the wall-to-wall windows. Oh, and best of all, there’s a private karaoke room.
