Bibimbap



Have you heard about Bibimbop, one of the most popular Korean food? This one on the pic is unconventional type though. I ordered bibimbop with soybean soup sauce and seafood. Compared to wide spread of Japanese and Chinese food to other countries, the reason for less popularity of Korean food is in large part due to its less influence on and penetration into the other cultures, but also because of less simplicity of cooking and storing. Once getting over these obstacles, I'm quite positive Korean food will be as huge a success as other Asian neighbourhood's.

We have some Koreans here who work with Hyundai. I believe there may even be a Korean restaurant in Montgomery. Perhaps it will catch on.

It looks good. You have taken a nice photo of the food and your story about the food is interesting too.

Dick - Bibimbop is quite a healthy cuisine and maybe a normal type would suit your taste.:)

Rambling Round - Thank you for your visit. Selma looks so peaceful and beautiful. Good to come to know the town!

Viola - Good to hear you are a fan of kimchi. I'm curious on what occasion you had kimchi.

Abraham - It was a little torturing to hold an appetite to take this photo. Bur your comment definitely rewarded my patience.;)

TP - I'm glad you enjoyed bibimbap. As you can read in wikipedia, the name means 'mixed(bibim) rice(bap).' Similary, we also have 'bibimmyeon', which consists of cold noodles and red pepper paste. But, in this noodle, we don't put as many ingredients as bibimbop, just some toppings like half-cut boiled egg, sliced cucumber and other vegetables. In this case, it cocentrate on the action to mix.

It could be looked even better if it's taken before mixed ;)

Sunkyoung said...

Sweetie, I didn't mix the ingredients before taking the shot. It was served as shown on the photo.

Sejin said...

Oh, I thought it is mixed.
I was imagining of "GeonJu Bibimbap" which is an art delicious and art decoration.

That's why I wrote the word, 'unconventional type.' I'd love to try 'Jeonju Bibimbap' some day, the genuine one!
