Wing Wing

OPENED 158 DAYS AGO

Wing Wing is a Korean restaurant serving free-range fried chicken, open in Bloomsbury.

The restaurant is inspired by the ‘chimaek’ joints of Korea and New York, which serve crispy fried chicken alongside ice cold beer.

The Spot:

The modern interior nods to the restaurant’s south-east Asian roots, with bright colours and playful signage. There’s also a private dining room with a huge TV screen and a self-service beer station, which sounds brilliant, yet dangerous.

The Food:

It’s obviously all about the chicken here. Korean fried chicken is double fried for a super crunchy crust and then glazed to add flavour. At Wing Wing, they offer three glazes: soy-garlic, hot or liquorice. Sides include fries seasoned with seaweed, kimchi coleslaw and bao buns with crispy katsu inside.

That katsu is also available served over steamed rice with pickles, and there’s a halloumi burger for those who don’t want fried chicken but have unfortunately ended up in a chicken restaurant.

The Drinks:

Wing Wing is, apparently, the first restaurant in the UK to use a ‘bottom-up’ beer pouring system, which allows diners to serve themselves by filling their glasses from the bottom up in 4-7 seconds. We can’t wait to have a go at this.

The Damage:

It’s fried chicken and beer so it’s not going to break the bank, depending on your approach to that self-service beer station, of course.

In a Nutshell:

Fried chicken and ice cold beer will forever be a winning combo. Now if only they had karaoke too…
