Sweet soy fried chicken, barbecue chicken, chicken noodle soup… Linda Lee (who is also behind On The Bab) is behind this Korean restaurant, based in Covent Garden and all about the poultry.

This sees Bjorn Van Der Horst (Eastside Inn) and Omar Romero (Rhodes Twenty Four, Rosewood) taking over the dining room on the 23rd floor of the Hilton Metropole. Expect a modernist Japanese pub with food to match. Plus Kirin beer K-slurpys and clay barrel aged cocktails served on airline trolleys.

On the Bab - which translates as served 'on the rice' - is East London's first anju restaurant (which according to Wikipedia is the traditional Korean cuisine of consuming food with alcohol, so it's got our vote) offering Korean sharing dishes - and a rather lethal-sounding cocktail list. The 30 seater restaurant won't take reservations and will be open every day for lunch and dinner.

Jubo has opened at the Bedroom Bar in Shoreditch, specialising in crunchy Korean fried chicken wings and strips- coated in either soy garlic or hot sauce.
