Dinner back in March ‘22 at newly Michelin starred Sollip, near London Bridge station. This was my second visit, and while still very good, I couldn’t help thinking that they should consider dialling up the Korean a bit more. They say that the basis of the restaurant’s cuisine stems from European and French training, their time spent in London and the “Korean techniques and ingredients that have shaped their upbringing”.
For me, the most memorable dishes were the strongly Korean influenced ones, the beef tartare, the gamtae sandwich and the hongsam garnish with the lamb. A classical French dish like the fish of the day with sauce Grenobloise, while being perfectly nice, sits very much at odds with the Korean influences present in some of the other dishes. I think they should find a direction and boldly follow that direction, and that direction should be banging, punchy Michelin star refined Korean food. There…. I’ve invented a new genre.
I think they could be a Korean Ikoyi, if that makes any sense.
Anyway, don’t listen to what I’ve got to say, what they are doing had just got them a Michelin star and Harden’s best newcomer award. So clearly they should stick to their current formula rather than take any notice of the ramblings of this idiot.
You should certainly check them out next time you’re in that London.
