Korean food in London has always been associated with pricey menus – especially if one covets the juicy, delicious Korean BBQ joints. With its previous location just behind Tottenham Court Road Station, Seoul Bakery has popped back into existence to offer really cheap food – tho the attached hair saloon seems to have been lost in the process.

Seoul Bakery has otherwise remained the same quirky, small placed that it used to be. Still cash only, it offers a bibimbap for as little as 3.5£ for the vegetarian one (or 4.5£ for the option with meat). It doesn’t come in the traditional stone bowl that is hot, and the egg is already cooked, but for this price you really can’t complain much. The soup is served in mugs, the bibimbap in those amusing metal plates – it all feels very homey (if your home was kinda run down). As mentioned in my initial review of the restaurant, it isn’t the most traditionally Korean food you find out there (at least not in the way you would expect to receive the dishes) – but it’s good quality for little money.
