Pay tribute to the quadruple Oscar winner this weekend
Bong Joon-Ho’s Oscar-winning phenomenon, Parasite, situates its interrogation of class and wealth on the plate, most tellingly in a dish of Korean jjapaguri — chapaghetti (an instant jajangmyun noodle) and noguri (seafood instant noodle) — topped with steak, likely from indigenous, highly prized hanwoo cattle, representing the co-existence of two families who would believe themselves in completely different worlds.
North London brunch specialist Bake Street will serve the dish this weekend only in celebration of the film’s success — joining Los Angeles restaurant Soban in heralding the win, where the cast and crew partied after taking home their four Oscars.
Disclosure: Bake Street co-owner Feroz Gajia contributes to Eater London. He is recused from covering Bake Street, and his contribution to Eater London does not affect coverage of Bake Street on Eater London.
