Except from gimbap and kimchi I also like the Korean food bibimbap, i’ts been a long time since I have ask hubby to bring me in a Korean restaurant but we always end up not going because too afraid to order because we can’t speak their language. I always told him that we are just going to do “point-point” to their menu, but when hubby agreed I am the one who back-out.
The first time I went to a Korean Restaurant, it is also the name of the food establishment was when we are with Edward (hubby’s Korean friend), we are in Wangsimi that time staying in a hotel. Edward help us moved there so after moving we ate, they ordered bibimbap and I ordered bugolgi hot pot. See it here.
So went to Seoul last weekend, I have asked him again. We ended up in Insadong, and very lucky to find English translation to their menu. Anyway the photo at the top is another variation of bibimbap, this is called dolsot bibimbap (stone bibimbap). This is served in a very hot stone bowl in which a raw egg is cooked against the sides of the bowl. The bowl is so hot that anything that touches it sizzles for minutes. Before the rice is placed in the bowl, the bottom of the bowl is coated with sesame oil, making the layer of the rice touching the bowl golden brown and crispy. It was really hot, that makes the rice a fried rice, yes indeed the rice became hard like fried one.
