Stone Hot Meal

bibimbap

Bibimbap (비빔밥) is a Korean dish comprised of rice topped with seasoned vegetables, some kind of paste / sauce, and sometimes meat and a raw egg. There will also sometimes be an additional small plate of hot paste. As soon as you get the hot dish, you should dump in the hot paste (to taste) and quickly mix the ingredients together. Pictured is a specific variant in which the beef is raw, there is also a raw egg yolk, and it is served in a searingly hot stone bowl. This variant is my favorite; it’s quite satisfying to quickly stir the ingredients and watch as the meat cooks, the egg adds a sheen to the other ingredients and the rice at the bottom comes out crispy and tasty. I had this dish in a bibimbap restaurant at the COEX Mall in the Gangnam district of Seoul.
