Review of Koba, Bloomsbury


Koba is the ultra-smart, minimalist face of Korean cooking in the capital. It specialises in theatrical barbecued dishes which are put together and finished off at the table. Bulgogi and kalbi (marinated sirloin and beef spare ribs respectively) are cornerstones of the cuisine, but the menu also promises everything from sliced ox tongue with salt-and-pepper sauce to sweet-and-spicy squid. Otherwise, plump for one of the 'grand assortments' of mixed meats, seafood and vegetables.

Alternatively, you might fancy considering something from the list of one-plate rice and noodle dishes: don't forget to order a bowl of kimchee (head-blowing, chilli-spiked pickled cabbage) on the side.

Start with immaculately presented samsaek milsaam (Korean-style wrapped pancakes stuffed with meat and vegetables) or yook hwei (an oriental take on steak tartare with sliced pears) and finish with one of the unusual desserts. Set lunches are unbeatable value.
