Critic reviews - total score 6.5 out of 10
On the Bab - which translates as served 'on the rice' - is East London's first anju restaurant (which according to Wikipedia is the traditional Korean cuisine of consuming food with alcohol, so it's got our vote) offering Korean sharing dishes - and a rather lethal-sounding cocktail list. The 30 seater restaurant won't take reservations and will be open every day for lunch and dinner.
