There are lots of decent Korean restaurants in central London, but there’s only one Seoul Bakery. They do a few inexpensive Korean dishes here, like bibimbap or kimchi fried rice (with authentic plastic cheese) that are good, but you want to come here primarily for the vibe. It feels like a cross between a student cafe, and a K-Pop memorabilia store. It’s cash only, communal seating, and 100% awesome.
