Bibimbap in Vancouver?
Hello, I love bibimbap and I have only been able to find a decent one so far at Hapa. I know, a Japanese restaurant. A must is the hot stone bowl so that the rice can get a bit crusty.
Anyone have other recommendations? The one at Jiang Mo Jib is only so-so... I'd love to find a place in Vancouver that is not as hard to get into as Hapa.
Thanks in advance!
Along Kingsway are a couple of Korean restaurants that will offer a good bibimbap

You can ask for the bowl to be really hot because you want lots of "nurungji". Then when you get it, don't disturb the rice at the bottom so it can crust.

re: gourmet wife
Thanks everyone! I actually went to HMart earlier this week and picked up stuff to make my own dolsot bibimbap. You can get a large plate with 6 different items (spinach, carrots, cucumber, fernbrake, bean sprouts, and shiitake), so I got that and some pickled radishes, plus the hot sauce, sesame salt, green onions, and ground pork. I made two batches - one in my small Le Crueset and one in a small stone bowl w/ a lid. Turned out so yummy and it was so easy!
I might check out the food court version one day for lunch though and a couple of the other ones for dinner.
