What's For Lunch Today? Yogiyo | Rupert St Market

It's been a while since I've been down to the Rupert St market for lunch, and it's now a fully-fledged market hosted by the Street Food Union, with more seating and proper marquees. Excellent stuff.

Today I wondered down to the end of the market and found Yogiyo, a little metal trailer serving the most delicious looking Korean Street Food. I actually see their trailer driving up the Old Kent Road in the mornings whilst on my daily commute, from that I was intrigued as the trailer is a stand out compared to many of the others on that market but more than anything I can now say the food is pretty spectacular too.

Yogiyo offers a relatively simple menu, much like many market traders, with four options. I went for the Bipimbab - a Korean rice bowl with vegetables and the choice of chicken or steak of which I chose chicken.



I don't actually know what else to say than it was completely and utterly delicious, the chicken was cooked really well in the most amazing sauce with so much flavour and the vegetables were perfectly crunchy. They give you a little pot of chilli sauce too, which I was told is good for mixing it all together and they weren't wrong. The chilli sauce was hot but not too hot, the perfect amount of spice as well as being nice and thick. 

Sorry for the poor picture quality, I was too excited to actually eat it!


The rice bowl set me back £5.50 but I think it was well worth it. Half an hour after finishing and I'm still dreaming about it, in fact I wish I had more because it was just so yum. The portion size was perfect though, it will keep me full for the afternoon (but that's not me saying I won't get a snack later...) but I'm not stuffed in anyway. 

If you get a chance to get some food from Yogiyo, I thoroughly recommend doing so, they're my new market favourite.
