OBP brings casual South Korean vibes to Central

The latest opening by the team behind 11 Westside – my fav Mexican restaurant in town (Click here to rediscover the interview of the two founders: Esdras Ochoa and Daniel Eun), OBP is inspired by Korean Sool-jip, literally a place that serves alcohol and food. And with a menu that offers Korean snacks and mains to share alongside cocktails, Soju, wine and spirit, OBP sticks true to its inspiration.
 

Interior design

OBP brings casual South Korean vibes to Central
Combining industrial aesthetics with green plants walls and communal wooden tables and benches, OBP plays the laid back card to the fullest in an effort, again, to recreate the Korean sool-jip experience. The place is rather big and I imagine the atmosphere will be vibrant at night when restrictions fully ease.
 

Drinks

OBP brings casual South Korean vibes to Central
Carefully crafted by Westside Hospitality’s Beverage Director, and professional mixologist, Daniel Eun, the drinks list features a few classic wine and spirit options but the focus is on cocktails crafted with Korean spirits – such as the Dokdo Gimlet (HKD 120) with Korean sake, Green Apple Shrub and Lime Juice or the After the Afterparty (HKD 120) with Banana Bourbon, Traditional Korean Rice Spirit, Korean Pear Juice, Ginger and Green Cardamom - and Soju.
 
Food
 
An ode to Korean street food, the menu at OBP is divided between ten snacks and seven mains, pretty much all made for sharing.
