Desperate for claypot Bibimbop in San Francisco
- Noah Jan 16, 2002 09:46 PM
Help me, please! I just had some terrible Korean food in Japantown, and I don't want to eat like that again. I was told recently that Bibimbop can be prepared either warm or sizzling in a clay pot. I'd only had the clay pot version before tonight, and it's my favorite food in the world. Can anyone please suggest a good Korean place in San Francisco that will make it sizzle?
You gotta tell us where it was terrible! Recently i've been trying all the Korean places in J-town. So far Seoul Garden's clay pot bi bim bop has been the best ... oh wait, I had the seafood pot (don't remember the name) there. Anyway, it was pretty yummy.
I just saw a new place in Chinatown called Tofu Something. It's all Korean tofu stews, the first Korean place in C-town apparantly. I plan to try it tomorrow.
Anyway, so far the best bi bim bop I've had is at Dong Baek in the Tenderloin. Let me know what you think.
Look no further than Jang Soo BBQ in the Richmond at 28th & Geary. I had the same longings for claypot bebimbap, and I was utterly thrilled to have it at Jang Soo. They always seem to be empty, so spread the word! Everything they serve is excellent.
--Sashi, thank you so much for the tip. My girlfriend lives in the Richmond, so we'll be checking out Jang Soo very soon, if not sooner.
--Edward, the place we didn't like in Japantown was actually that same Seoul Garden! But I guess I didn't order the clay pot, and that was the problem (the Jang Soo menu calls it Dol Sot Bibimbop--I guess I'll have to remember that).
Thanks again, folks!
