Yijo BBQ is a tradition Korean restaurant where you can get charcoal BBQ in North West London. The restaurant is local to North Finchley and right next to the tube station.
There are are a range of Korean starters to select on the menu. We ordered a variety of traditional Korean starters.
Yukhoe (£9.50) is a Korean beef tartare served with pear and topped with egg.
Par Jeon (£7.90) is a Korean seafood pancake and is one of my favourite Korean dish to order.
Yang yeum chicken (£8.50) is fired chicken in sweet chilli sauce.
Yijo has a range of meats to order for BBQ, ranging from beef, chicken, pork, lamb, duck and seafood. There is also platters which are great to get a range of meat. We ordered the modum so gogi set (£30) which includes different selection of meat.
The restaurant is happy to leave you to cook the meat yourself. But if you are not sure how to cook the meat or prefer it to be cooked for you the staff will be happy to help.
The BBQ meats came served with lettuce leaves, side dishes and sauces.
Yijo has a selection of rice and noodles including the famous bibimbap.
There is a range of Korean broths and hotpots on Yijo’s menu. We tried the Sam Gae Tang (£15) which is one of the traditional Korean broth. It is made up of a whole chicken cooked with ginseng.
The portion size was decent for the price. Although the chicken was nicely cooked but I thought there was not enough ginseng.
It is not a fancy place but one where you get decent Korean food at reasonable price. I do recommend you book in advance for a table.
