Bibigo to take on the site of Alan Yau's Naamyaa

Korean restaurant Bibigo is to take on the site of Alan Yau's Naamyaa on St John's Street in Islington.

Yau had planned to relaunch the site as Busaba Eathai, but the change didn't take place and a note on the restaurant's website says it is closed until further notice.

Now it has been announced that Bibigo is to open on the Islington site. It will be the second Bibigo in the UK after its Soho restaurant. The group also operates restaurants in South Korea, Singapore, Japan, China, Vietnam and Los Angeles.

The 130-cover Bibigo Angel will feature an open Korean grill barbecue, allowing diners to see head chef Yongjae Cho preparing dishes which include chilli barbecued pork and squid and kimchi rice with chicken and fried egg.

Also on offer is likely to be Bibigo's speciality, Bibimbap and Hot Stone Bibimbap, which are considered national dishes of Korea.

The restaurant will soft launch in January 2015.
