Onggi – Korean food in Leicester

June 28, 2016

A quick little plug for Onggi, a Korean restaurant and takeaway at 98  Welford Road  (between the Bricklayers Arms and the prison).  It’s been a while since we’ve had a Korean restaurant in the city and while this is a fairly humble sort of place, I’ve really enjoyed the two meals I’ve had there recently. Fresh, zingy kimchi-stuffed pancakes, spicy, crunchy chicken wings and LA Galbi – thinly sliced beef short ribs quickly barbecued with a sweet marinade – were among the highlights. Then there were beautiful, crisp leaves of seaweed (below) – a treat for the eyes and the palate.

Hopefully there will be a full review shortly in the Leicester Mercury – and on here  – but if you like the idea get down there soon. Their main clientele of Chinese students are starting to disappear for the summer so it’s a good time to go.
