The ongoing vogue for Korean food is not something that seems to be going anywhere, and at Hamgipak on Fulham Road in, well, Fulham, they are certainly in it for the long haul. They dole out steaming bowls of stew, filled with Korean favourites like kimchi, tofu, spicy beef and fresh vegetables. Head to west London – take the District line to Parsons Green – for a serving of South Korean specialities.
For many years, South Korean food was among the most maligned of Asian cuisines, languishing between the sushi and sashimi specialities of Japan and the dim sum delicacies of China. Of late though, the cuisine of the Korean Peninsula has become one of the most sought after around, and at Hamgipak on Fulham Road, you can taste some of the best of it in London. Find your way to Fulham for a feed and you won’t be disappointed.
The draw, of course, is the menu, and on this stretch of Fulham Road, they have offerings for all comers at all times. Our lunchtime recommendation would be the bibimbab – veggies with egg and, to your liking, beef – and later visitors can enjoy a range of fried favourites, Korean BBQ or one of their stews, which are packed with spice. West London is a great place to eat out, Fulham is one of the main dining areas, and Hamgipak is one of the best restaurant in that area: so book a table now.
Our favourite local restaurant! Delicious food, friendly service and good value. Would definitely recommend it. If you have time, try the BBQ at the table. The spicy pork is very tasty.
We were welcomed very warmly, the food was very good and the waiting was short and we were served quickly. It was a really good experience.
Felt like I was back in Korea! Such a pleasant atmosphere, lovely staff, ace food. Brilliant overall, me and my friends will be back :)
