K Place Korean BBQ is the new place in the City of London for proper Korean style barbecued gelbi, bulgogi and more with lavish set banqueting options available and a stylish space on St Mary At Hill to enjoy it all in. Found in the Billingsgate ward close to London Bridge and Monument tube station, K Place’s menus are clear and carefully annotated, which is great if you’re new to the fun, social Korean barbecue experience. If you’re a veteran, you need to book a table and check this Korean restaurant out.
A good introduction to K Place Korean BBQ’s offering would be to order one of the three set menus, the most generous of which gives you the chance to tailor an incredible ten-course buffet banquet with unlimited meat and seafood options. Once you find your way from Monument underground and take your seat at K Place’s St Mary At Hill premises, picking your way through the huge selection offered by this Korean restaurant in the heart of the City of London is a real pleasure, with the buffet menu divided up into suggestively titled sections. Dishes listed under Enhance are described as well prepared and with a sharpened taste, and include braised tofu or oyster, while Deep Impact dishes feature the braised meat or fish of the day. In a nod to its home near London Bridge, K Place puts its staple rice and soups of the day under the section Keep Calm And Carry On.
The a la carte offering at this London Bridge restaurant is more straight-faced and cleaves close to Korean culinary traditions. Starters include delicate pancakes stuffed with kimchi and rice cakes, classics of Korean street food. You can even grab a bucket of KFC at this St Mary At Hill less-than-fast food restaurant; Korean fried chicken, that is, marinated in either a savoury, sweet chilli, or honey, butter and garlic sauce. K Place Korean BBQ sources its beef from a local Smithfield butcher and seafood from the nearby Billingsgate fish market, meaning it’s all as fresh as possible when it’s sliced and delivered raw to your table. This is where the copper exhaust hoods above each table come down, and the fun begins. London loves Korean barbecue cuisine for its social aspect as much as its taste, and K Place’s restaurant near London Bridge and Monument is without a doubt one of the very best venues for this mode of dining in the capital.
Food was delicious, the buffet menu is definitely worth it
Celebrated a friend’s birthday and restaurant was excellent! Our waitress was kind, helpful and attentive! Made it very easy to celebrate and helped to ensure that evening ran smoothly.
