In the heart of China Town lays a small Korean joint that is home to one of the best Bibimbap, at a very affordable price.
So what exactly is a Bibimbap?
A Bibimbap is a signature Korean dish. The word literally means “mixed meal” or “mixed rice”. To me, is a bowl of goodness with a ton of flavour, a “yolky” attitude and a price that makes it taste even better.
From what I noticed, the rice starts sticking and toasting in the bottom of the bowl as it is being brought to your table. The julienne vegetables are perfectly seasoned and cooked and start warming up as you mix them with the rice. The dish, if you wish, can be topped off with an egg. Once your knife breaks into the yolk and your veggies and rice get coated with all that buttery goodness, you realize you can’t wait to get to the bottom of the bowl. That rice crust that forms at the bottom is exactly what I look for as I take a last bite at my Bibimbap.
Seor Ak San, which is the name given to the restaurant as a tribute to one of the highest mountains in South Korea, welcomes all guests with a complimentary set of appetizers that are, well, appetite-opening.
