WS #20: Dolsot Bibimbap

Yesterday, we had lunch at Korea Grill, a newly opened Korean restaurant at the China Town Center.  We only ordered two items from the menu, Beef Bulgogi (which I wasn’t able to take a photo of because my daughter was too hungry already!) and Dolsot Bibimbap. 

I loved the Dolsot Bibimbap.  This is what I always, and I mean ALWAYS, order whenever we go to a Korean Restaurant.  What is it exactly?  Here’s a bit of info from Wiki:

Bibimbap is a popular Korean dish. The word literally means “stirred/mixed rice” or “stirred/mixed meal.” (It is also sometimes spelled “bibimba,” “bibimbab,”b-bop” or “bibimbop”).

Bibimbap is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with namul (sautéed and seasoned vegetables) and gochujang (chili pepper paste). A raw or fried egg and sliced meat (usually beef) are common additions. The ingredients are stirred together thoroughly just before eating. It can be served either cold or hot.

Vegetables commonly used in bibimbap include julienned cucumber, zucchini, mu (daikon), mushrooms, doraji (bellflower root), and gim, as well as spinach, soybean sprouts, and gosari (bracken fern stems). Dubu (tofu), either plain or sautéed, or a leaf of lettuce may be added, or chicken or seafood may be substituted for beef. For visual appeal, the vegetables are often placed so that adjacent colors complement each other.

Dawn is breaking here, my other WS entry. :)  Have a fab week!  :)
