A Korean sizzling brown rice specialty, we were drawn to Bi Bim Bap first form their glowing reviews for authentic, healthy Korean food. Furthermore, they offer brown rice (for no extra charge), along with vegan options such as tofu (offered either fried or steamed) or a blend of 9 different mushrooms. You can also personalized your stone bowl creations with your choice of hot sauce, or not-so-hot sauce (in my case, I had the not hot soy garlic sauce, but R had the 'mild hot' sour GoChuJang which I thought was plenty spicy, thankyouverymuch). Since the hot sauces are served on the side, you can add to taste and even ask for another sauce if it turns out to be too spicy.
On the side was some kimchi and pickled ?pear/apple? (not very much, which was sad). Their homemade and simple kimchi is made with anchovies (no go for vegans) but Rob said it was plenty spicy so I wouldn't have liked it anyways.
All bibimbaps come with miso soup and a cinnamon-ginger dessert drink.
Fast service with piping hot food (you can opt to not have the stone bowl if you don't want it too hot), we were filled with an appy, and 3-course bibimbap in a bit over an hour.Pros: healthy, fast, accomodating and malleable to all tastes
Cons: non-vegan kimchi
