The 4 Best Korean Corn Dog Spots in London

Following the Korean Wave that continues to cause ripples all over the world (take a look at the numerous categories that Netflix has exclusively for Korean content), London is no stranger to it.

Hallyu has given rise to the popularity of Korean cuisine in Europe, more so the Korean corn dog.

The Korean corn dog is a common street food that is deep-fried batter containing rice cakes, fish cakes, hot dogs or mozzarella cheese. It is always coated with panko before deep frying.

Usually, we eat it with some condiments such as mayo, mustard, and ketchup.

In case you haven’t tried one out yet (or are looking for a stellar place to get the best Korean corn dogs to satisfy your cravings), here is our guide to the best Korean corn dog spots in London.

Korean Dinner Party’s Instagram account is beautifully curated with impeccable photos of the mouth-watering Korean cuisine that they serve to the people of Soho. The vibes of the restaurant are giving and you might just want to go and experience that for yourself.

All this is thanks to 광광 (pronounced ‘gwang-gwang’ which translates to “brilliance”) who incorporated the traditional Korean essence with the metropolitan vibe, something KDP states that it was going for.

This restaurant makes the best option for Instagram foodies who will have the combination of the perfect ambience and picture-worthy, tasty food.

Sadly, compared to other equally wonderful restaurants in this list, KDP does not invest in providing different versions of the Korean corn dogs to its customers.

They offer the Korean corn dog which is made up of a hotdog, mozzarella, ketchup and mustard toppings, found under their brunch menu. However, what makes up for that would be the quality of service that they dispense.

With Korean Dinner Party, you get the full experience of Korean culture and flavours intertwined with those from Japan, the United States and Mexico.

With a menu curated by the experts behind Tā Tā Eatery and Tóu, you are guaranteed of the best experience with their meals.

Expect to enjoy Unlimited Taco Tuesdays for €20pp, a Bottomless Brunch every Saturday and Sunday for groups of eight at €39 alongside their smooth playlists composed of Korean and South Asian musicians. If you have any food allergies, be sure to check out their allergen information chart here.
