Whenever my partner and I crave something Korean or capping our shopping experience of electronics, we always go to Po Cha. It’s a small and compact place near Tottenham Court tube station, which makes the experience more intimate. Our starter is always the Korean pancake – either vegetable and shrimp – with extra helpings of the dipping sauce. When it comes to mains, everything on the menu is good but somehow he always tends to get the yummier one. Somebody else’s food always looks better than yours, as some people say.
The service here is fairly quick. I suppose they have to since there are lots of people waiting to be seated. There’s also not much for decorations, the place is pretty plain. And because it’s small, you really can’t have a big group here – anything above six would probably have to be seated at separate tables. However, there is a downstairs area which could maybe provide a somewhat exclusive area.
Dining at Po Cha will definitely not break your bank account. This is one of reasons why we found this place and kept coming back. We discovered it as part of my “dine in London for under a tenner each” challenge. A meal for two, without drinks (mind you this isn’t one those places where you order wine with your meal), but with starters is under £ 25.
