The Korean trend of fried chicken and beer has well and truly hit London, and there's no better place to try it than Wing Wing in Holborn. The main attraction is crispy chicken wings or drumsticks, fried and flavoured as either hot, soy garlic or - wait for it - liquorice, washed down with an ice-cold pint of beer. There's also seaweed fries, kimchi coleslaw, crispy noodles and bao bun sliders with filling options of halloumi, katsu chicken, bacon or prawn. This is Asian soul food at it's finest!
