Paying ode to the hawker and street-food culture of South Korea, the new restaurant is certainly the place to be if you are craving Korean food.

The centrepiece of the elegantly decorated restaurant has to be the bar. As the eatery brings a touch of K-pop to Dubai, the eatery also has a terrace space where people can dine under the glorious Dubai sun during winters. If you are wondering about the menu, it features the insanely renowned Korean Fried Chicken, which offers just the right amount of kick for those who relish spicy food. While you are here, you must also try their Spicy Chicken Taco or the Chicken Satay, which pairs perfectly with a smoky sauce. As it happens, you must definitely try their Bibimbap, which is another famous Korean dish. Finally, don’t forget to pair your meal with lip-smacking drinks to make it a meal fit for the king.
