Kimchi might be a side dish of fermented veggies, but at The Kimchi Project it is the founder of spellbinding flavour and exquisite Korean dishes.

It's a reviving, Zen space. The dining room is set in a lush conservatory that's bursting with potted plants and luscious greens; a much-needed slice of nature in the bustling city. Despite it being made entirely of glass, it's surprisingly cosy thanks to its plush sofas, low glass ceilings and snug lighting.

To start, some sharing plates. Get your evening off to a crunch with some szechuan soy crunchy eggplant or get messy with some chicken wings. Then move on to their creamy seafood kimchi laksa or eat clean with their buddha bowl that's full of healthy proteins like mung beans, chickpeas and egg. Alternatively, opt for comforting options like the Korean BBQ pork rice and kimchi bacon pasta. Who knew kimchi was so versatile!

Why not have some bao buns on the back-burner? Choose from a softshell crab filling or pulled pork and tempura chicken. Polish it off with a refreshing glass of Asahi or a refreshing white lotus cocktail. And if you're a single pringle and ready to flamingleā€¦ the flirty flamingo has your name all over it.
