November special: Kimchi
November 2, 2021
A brand new collab with Million Pound Menu winner Jay Morjaria, who also has a Korean restaurant called JAE at Untitled in Dalston, East London. Big Korean flavours like kimchi and bulgogi (a salty-sweet BBQ marinade for beef or pork) work brilliantly in a burger, packing a punch without overloading it with ingredients.
Jay has experience cooking Korean food in South Korea and London, paying respect to traditional techniques and ingredients.
For the first time ever, we’re also serving Korean soju, a crystal-clear spirit typically distilled from rice and served as a cold neat shot. It’s the heart and soul of South Korean get-togethers and best enjoyed with dinner and a drinking game. Here are a few Korean drinking games to get you started. Geonbae!
Bottle Cap Flick – When you open a fresh bottle of soju the cap retains a thin strip of metal that seals the bottle. Take it in turns to flick the strip off the bottle cap. When someone successfully flicks it off the two people to the right and left of the winner have to take a shot.
Titantic – Fill a small beer glass two-thirds with beer and float an empty shot glass in it. Take it in turns to add a little splash of soju to the shot glass. Whoever sinks the shot glass has to drink the whole beer/soju mix.
Baskin Robbins 31 – Go around the table in circles saying up to three consecutive numbers from 1-31. e.g. “1-2-3”, “4-5” or “6” and so on. When a player is forced to say ’31’, it’s their turn to take a shot.
3-6-9 – Go round in circles with each player saying just one number in sequence. When numbers 3, 6 and 9 come up the player must clap instead of saying the number out loud. After 33 it’s a double clap. Whoever says a 3, 6 or 9 out loud (or multiples of, like 12, 15, 18 and so on), or messes up another way, they have to take a shot.
Noonchi (Read The Room) – Kick off with a round of rock paper scissors to choose who starts the game. The winner calls out number 1 and the game begins. Players can shout out consecutive numbers in a random order until the final number is called out (which is always the number of players). If any players call out the same number at the same time, or call out a number out of sequence, or are forced to call out the final number (4), then they must take a shot.
