A new Korean street food cafe has opened in Finnieston.

CJ’s K-Cafe serves up Korean fried chicken, rice bowls alongside halal and vegan dishes. The new dining room is located within the K-Photo studio Life4Cuts on Argyle Street. CJ’s K-Cafe is an offshoot of Yorokobi by CJ, a Michelin recommended Korean restaurant in Aberdeen. Opened by chef Jang, who has almost 30 years experience working in kitchens in Korea and the UK.

The opening announcement said: "We are proud to mention that Yorkobi By CJ have branched to Glasgow and will be launching a Korean cafe/bistro. In the heart of Finnieston, Glasgow, we have uniquely decided to combine a Korean street food bistro/cafe with a famous photo-booth franchise Life4cuts. We want to give you a piece of the ultimate Korean experience here in Scotland."
