Korean restaurants in Liverpool

Korean food has established a thriving presence in Liverpool’s diverse culinary scene over the years, and we’re so lucky to have some world class eateries right on our very own doorstep. 

From sizzling barbecue meats to aromatic stews and savoury noodles, Korean restaurants in Liverpool are serving up authentic cuisine with a lot of “Seoul”.

So whether you’re a dedicated foodie or just eager to explore new flavours, there’s definitely something for everyone. 

Here are eight restaurants you have to try for that authentic Korean dining experience:

Chop Chop

Opened in 2008, Chop Chop was the epitome of a “hidden gem”. 

The “Hidden-away” takeaway was basically a hole in the wall on Fenwick Street… but from something so small, they built a huge following!

Lee and Yeom had no previous experience in food service before. But they had their love for home food with a view of delivering Korean and Japanese home food to their customers. 

Chop Chop expanded a few doors down from its original location, and now offer seating.

Have you ever tried their Mega Chicken? Deep-fried crispy chicken in Chop Chop’s own home-made “Mega” sauce… if you haven’t you must!

Relatively new to the city KaiBaiBo’s owners, Robin and Chris, opened the doors last year on Slater Street. Emerging from Chris’ passion as a chef creating fast and high quality food, as well as his brother Robin’s past life in Busan, South Korea. 

KaiBaiBo aim to introduce people to the flavours and ingredients of the Korean peninsula in ways that may be more familiar -but that’s not to say you won’t see a couple of their favourite Korean dishes on the menu!

One of the most interesting dishes on the menu is their Meat Donut… now don’t knock it ’til you try it… it’s a sweet and fluffy donut filled with slow cooked beef & sriracha cream cheese, on a bed of roast pepper sauce.

Also, fun fact, KaiBaiBo means “Rock Paper Scissors”!
