Myungrang Hot Dog to make UK debut in London

Korean concept Myungrang Hot Dog is set to open its first UK site at Angel Central in London's Islington later this year, alongside South Korean fried chicken concept Pelicana.

Myungrang Hot Dog, which has a strong presence in the Philippines, Singapore, Mexico, Indonesia and Taiwan, will be making its UK debut in a 2,172 sq ft site within the development.

Launched in Korea in 2016 by Sangwoo Kim, the concept has opened 730 stores internationally, offering mozzarella hot dog dipped in crispy batter, rice cake hot dog and cheddar cheese hot dog.

Myungrang Hot Dog's first UK location will be located on Angel Central's ground floor and will have access to a dedicated 1,600 sq ft restaurant space on the first floor for Pelicana seating 80 covers. The dining spaces have been designed by Studio Penn.

Ciara Daffy, asset manager at CBRE Investment Management, said: "We are very much looking forward to welcoming these two Korean culinary brands to the destination, and are especially pleased to have secured to UK debut for Myungrang Hot Dog. At Angel Central, we are always striving to offer our community new opportunities and these unique concepts highlight not only the brands' trust in us as a destination, but also the building blocks we have established to achieve a varied and distinctive retail and restaurant offer."

Kim added: "Our first entrance into the UK market for our Myungrang Hot Dog concept at Angel Central is extremely exciting and only adds to the Pelicana forthcoming opening too. This location is the perfect site to test out both concepts within a new UK market given its ambiance, connectivity within London and unique offering. We are looking forward to witnessing the excitement around our launch here."

CBRE and CWM represented Angel Central for both retail and leisure enquiries. Myungrang Hot Dog and Pelicana dealt direct.
