What is it?

Not only is SSAM one of the cooler BYOB places to eat in London, it’s also one of the best and most authentic Korean BBQ restaurants in London. You’ll find it 30 seconds from Holloway station and we guarantee you’ll head that way at least more than once. This BYOB Korean BBQ packs each dish with flavour and serves up generous portion sizes too – this is one of the best Korean restaurants in North London.

you can’t not get the double fried chicken (trust us)

Korean BBQ with BYOB – we’re in heaven!

Check out the kimchi fried rice with beef, it’s amazing, and comes with a runny egg on top!

What should you get?

It is difficult to pick out a favourite dish from SSAM, everything is stellar, for that reason we recommend starting with the small plates platter (which includes a little bit of everything) – you also can’t not get the double fried chicken (trust us). For a main check out the beef bibimbap and the spicy pork belly. Mains are around £10-£15 depending on what you fancy. One particular favourite of ours is the kimchi fried rice with beef, it’s amazing, and comes with a runny egg on top.

If you’re a veggie, you have to check out the tasty teriyaki tofu or the pumpkin Katsu curry – which stands toe-to-toe with any chicken or pork Katsu curry.



Korean BBQ is one of the best “group-foods” you can get – the variety on offer from the meats, rices and veg is unparalleled in other cuisines. As a result this place is a hit with groups, it’s only small (we’re talking 18 people max!) therefore we recommend booking ahead if you’re going on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday night (it’s closed on Sundays FYI).
